The OpenLP developers are pleased to announce the second release candidate of OpenLP 3.1. This release candidate
contains a multitude of bug fixes, a number of enhancements, and even a new feature or two. There are also a number of
changes under the hood which puts OpenLP in a good position for the future.
**Wait, what happened to the first release candidate?!**
We had some issues with the packaging of RC1, and we caught a couple regressions (bugs that cause a feature not to work
like it previously did), and so we had to build a new release.
Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I will say, "Rejoice!" Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at
hand. In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be
made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your
thoughts in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7
.. note:: **Windows 7 is no longer supported!** (Microsoft does not support it either.)
In order to make use of newer technologies, features and optimizations in the libraries that OpenLP uses, we have
had to drop support for Windows 7. Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 in January 2020, and Python stopped
supporting Windows 7 with the release of Python 3.9 in October 2020.
.. warning:: **Download on macOS is damaged**
macOS reports OpenLP as damaged, due to the OpenLP app not being signed. If you encounter this
problem, you can try the following solution:
1. From Applications / Utilities run Terminal
2. In Terminal, type in the following command::
xattr -dr /Applications/
3. In some cases, you may need to append ``sudo`` to the above command
4. This should allow you to start OpenLP normally
.. warning:: **Video/media playback on macOS**
OpenLP uses VLC for video and media playback. At this stage VLC is not bundled with OpenLP, so you will need to
download and install it yourself.
You can download VLC from the `VLC website`_.
.. warning:: **Ubuntu 22.04, Linux Mint**
The main view in the web remote does not update automatically on Ubuntu 22.04 due to
Ubuntu/Mint shipping an old version of python3-websockets. This can be fixed by
downloading and installing an updated version of the package from `the official
Ubuntu archive`_.
.. warning:: **Wayland on Linux**
OpenLP at present does not behave well under Wayland so the recommendation is to run
under X11. If you can't run in X11 (or prefer to run it in XWayland), you should
start it with ``QT_QPA_PLATFORM`` environment variable set to ``xcb``, although the
Main View from the Web Remote will not work.
.. warning:: **Video backgrounds**
Video / streaming backgrounds and background audio in songs currently do not work
together. You may experience either the video not working but the audio works, or
the audio doesn't work while the video does.
.. note:: **Debian/Ubuntu builds will be coming soon**
We will update this blog post once the Debian/Ubuntu package has been built
