Welcome to the home page for the Vienna OLR public repository.

Vienna is an offline reader for CIX which runs on Mac OS X 10.4 and later (Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion)

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIX

This repository only contains source code. To obtain the Vienna App in ready-to-run form, please join the vienna conference on CIX and download the latest version from the files topic.


These instructions apply only to commits dated on or before 2011/12/03 21:45. Commit [344831bf21] is the latest for that time. We are in the process of changing the name of Vienna to Vinkix to avoid conflict with the Vienna RSS feed reader. This is a work in progress, so expect things to be a bit messy for a while.
