.. title: OpenLP 3.1.0 Release Candidate 4 "Nifty Naphtali"

We're happy to announce the fourth release candidate of OpenLP 3.1. This release fixes or improves some of the biggest bugs and issues we've seen in OpenLP. This is the last release candidate before the final release of OpenLP 3.1.
What then is my reward? That when I preach the Good News, I may present the Good News of Christ without charge, so as not to abuse my authority in the Good News.
1 Corinthians 9:18
.. 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 prepend ``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
