Description Gwyn Ciesla 2014-01-31 13:34:44 UTC
gpodder is being upgraded from 2.20.3 to 3.5.2.  There is a configuration and date storage change between these versions.  After upgrading the RPM, any user on the system who uses gpodder, prior to opening it, should run /usr/bin/gpodder-migrate2tres, which will migrate the user's data and configuration to the new format, including all subscribed feeds and downloaded podcasts.

Comment 1 Pete Travis 2014-01-31 16:07:08 UTC
Thanks for the report, Jon!

I'll do some research, but while we're here, do you know any recourse for users who opened gpodder without doing the migration first?

Comment 2 Gwyn Ciesla 2014-01-31 16:16:57 UTC
Yes, in fact I discovered that the hard way, after opening it to nothing, and trying to import from the old settings in ~/gpodder-downloads. :) 

Just remove ~/gPodder and run usr/bin/gpodder-migrate2tres.
