Vienna 2.4 Released

The Vienna team is happy to announce the release of Vienna 2.4! You can download it from SourceForge at Vienna 2.4. An English-only version can be downloaded as well.

Requirements

Vienna 2.4 requires Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or higher to run. Sorry, we can no longer support Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.

Database upgrade

On the first launch, Vienna 2.4 will upgrade your database. Depending on the size of your database, the upgrade may take some time, so please be patient on first launch. Because of the database upgrade, we don’t recommend that you switch back and forth between Vienna 2.4 and Vienna 2.3.
