I've just discovered a new use of RSS: it can be used to track updates for all your applications hosted at Github! Just create a new subscription with the release page (for example https://github.com/ViennaRSS/vienna-rss/releases). :-)

Still a small visual glitch (checked in 10.11 this time ;-) )
A blue line appears under the ninth article in the list.
(in 10.9.5 it looked like a scroll bar)

RSS is still the best way to read a lot of news sources and Vienna is the best one I've tried. Fast to load new messages and fast to clear old ones, even though I have hundreds of feeds. With the browser add ons highlighting those sites that have feeds, it's so easy to load a new site... It's great the developer is so active in fixing the bugs.... "Long Live Vienna!"

v3.4.0 crashes on launch, here on OS 10.9.5.
Tried even on a fresh Guest user account.
I see in their forum that someone has the same issue on 10.10: http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=27085&sid=c617817e90d7532fdda731afcc55b014

I never needed RSS feeds but tried a few RSS readers, years ago, and Vienna was the best free one — I couldn't find anything really worth paying for NetNewsWire... Now, while I was searching for a podcast player/manager, I tried gPodder and found that subscriptions were done through RSS. As gPodder hasn't got an integrated player (it relies on Quicktime for external playing), I thought of using Vienna for that purpose and it works great (and it has a nicer GUI than gPodder). The only improvement I'd like to see is indeed an integrated player, but I suppose it won't happen as it's not its main purpose.

Been my reader for many years. Never fails. Just wish it would be developed for iOS. The forums say they are looking at it but that was over a year ago. I'd pay for that.

Amazing! Before updating Vienna, it was using 600 MB memory. After updating today to the current version, memory usage dropped to just 65MB ! It's 10 times less.

Memory management has gotten much better over the last two years, and I'm not getting any runtime error reports anymore from macOS. Especially the current update seems snappier than the version before. As for the software itself: no-nonsense orthodox RSS reader, the best on the market in my opinion. If you only have a handful of RSS feeds, you can use one of those "fancy" show-off RSS apps, but hundreds? Only with Vienna.
