This is a really great app. I had been using NetNewsWire Lite for a long time, but the tabs in Vienna are just beautiful. Smart folders are infinitely handy as well.

The only thing I really miss is the 'view source' option in NetNewsWire... But I can certainly live without that.

I wasn't talking about the icon. I was talking about the fact that it its possibe to access all RSS feeds in RSS menu.

This app has advanced so much in the last year. I bought NewsFire because Vienna just wasn't as streamlined to use, but since these latest releases I've abandoned NewsFire for good -- with the Condensed pane layout it seems even faster to use.

@ zeberman:
First of all, let me tell you that I'm not the developer of Vienna. I'm just an ordinary user.
The toolbar icons are based on Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) icons. That's the shape of thing to come. (And I like them very much!)
There is also a set of similar icons for Camino's toolbar. You may find them in Pimp my Camino website and install them with CaminIcon.

Yes... The development of Vienna has been fantastic. These latest versions are just amazing.
IMHO, there is just one thing missing: a progression bar for the downloads window. I have already emailed the developer (Steve Palmer) and he replied to me saying that it will appear in the near future.

I like it but I still miss the menu from RSS Menus. It would be good if when you clicked the icon it would show all the new articles (sorted by feeds) and the you can quickly see whats new and click on them if you want to read them. I also hink the icon is slightly random (a newspaper or something) and that the icons should be aqua style. Other then that, fantstic app! I tried this earlier and didn't like it. But it has improved alot since then!

Thanks, fixed

Where's version 2.2.0.2205?
The download link leads to version 2.2.0.2204.

This new look of Vienna is excellent!
And it's faster than previous versions.
Thanks, developer!

This version 2.2.0.2201 is the very first one without the brushed metal interface.
And it just looks great!
