It seems like 10.95.4 has been pulled. I wonder what the issue was? Does anyone have any insight? We've had releases break things but they rarely roll them back within a day.

Yes, I can see the release notes on https://evernote.com/release-notes have reverted back to 'Version 10.94.3 - Latest'. 

On my web, though, I am on version 10.95.4. It seems for people who have got 10.95.4, it won't revert back. But, for people who haven't updated yet or for those who want to download the latest version from evernote.com, the latest is 10.94.3.

Can't comprehend. 😐

There must have been a regression severe enough for them to pull it, or there was a regression and they are finally taking quality control seriously and decided to pull it.

I found that Tasks, Files and Calendar in the Sidebar were all unresponsive in 10.95.4 on Windows 11

Same here on Mac.  I had to logout and remove the local database to get it working again.

Interesting to read that the update was pulled. I installed 10.95.4 right away (MacBook Air M1) and have noticed zero problems. I use tasks a lot and just checked the calendar and files sections. They all work fine for me.

I'm on EN 10.95.4 WIN. There are some troubles with sidebar menu, and it seems to suck a bit more CPU power than before. And have of course all those earlier bugs and flaws. Quite normal Evernote behavior, i would say.

They release new updates like crazy, which bring nothing new than chaos. They pulled it probably because there was a major issue. In my case this app designed by children doesn't start on my computer.

You need to wipe it using Revo Uninstaller, then reinstall with the actual installer from the EN website.

But you know this already, because you have been told so in another thread.

If I remember correctly your claim it wouldn’t start is wrong, BTW. It starts, but won’t connect because you try to run a deprecated version of the client (wasn’t it 10.8 …. We are now at 10.94).

No, it didn't start. The latest version.

That‘s what I was always thinking and that would also explain bad design choices and lacking functionality.

IIRC there was a comment during the installation that an update to the database was required.  In my case, when the software restarted, I did not notice an update occurring and then when I tried all notes, tasks and calendars I found they didn't work, so I logged out selecting not to keep the local copy so it could be rebuilt.  That fixed it for me, so maybe this was an installation issue, if the local database update was triggered then it installed correctly, if not then you got the result I saw.

That's RENT being switched on. If you export an activity log you'll see isRENTenabled: true.

BS probably realized they could push releases faster if they stopped dog-fooding Evernote.

Either their new internal collaboration tool is a lot more productive, or that bugs don't need to be fixed if no one spots them.

A faulty release has hit the customers. Faulty in basic functions, bricking the app on customer computers, needing additional measures to allow a new install.

That’s all I need to know, and it always points to a massive lack of quality management.

This is not the first faulty release, but it is the worst. And watching the frenzy of releases, I don’t see they learn from what happened.

Which is another fail in QM.

So far, 🤞, I haven't experienced any problems with 10.95.4.

In general, I find MANY mobile apps are frequently updated. I had one that was updating every two or three days recently. Most update weekly with the reason being 'miscellaneous bug fixes'. I wonder if this is the approach in the mobile world? Bending Spoons had come from the mobile development world. Is mobile development more inclined to cycles of rapid releases fixing issues on the run?

I'm not justifying or supporting the approach but wondering if BS had brought this rapid release mentality to Evernote?

EN is a productivity app.

Imagine a company with 1 million employees, all stopped from working because of a bad software update.

This is the dimension we are talking here, just that the user are not all employed by one company, and we don’t get paid, we pay for what we get.

For what I see the approach of releasing new updates is not matching the type of application. And that’s not a glitch, it’s a management failure.

I agree with PE 100%. Never thought it would ever come to that 🙂

Hit the nail right on the head. QA needs to be overhauled and as I've said many times we need a true opt-in beta program.

People like me who like to tinker would be willing to live with some bugs to test the latest hotness. However there are some that just want things to work and would prefer a stable or even LTS channel (wishful thinking).

Not for me.  Many rent_rollout... variables but no isRENTenabled.

This is where to check, you'd go to Help -> Activity Logs -> Save Most Recent Logs

Ok, this is in the currentUserData.txt file on the Mac and not in the .log file. Yes, mine is shown as enabled.

Nice! I assume we'll see a blog post about this soon. @Jon/t mentioned this will be rolling out.

Actually I would prefer a blog post telling we suspend all feature creation, not to be restarted before 

- We have a solid QA firewall for releases installed

- We have a number X of long lasting bugs squeezed, and the processes consolidated in a way that they won’t occur again

It is heroic that they try to sort out in a year plus something what had sedimented in the years before. But I don’t ask for tragic heroes, they may live long and a productive life, fixing what is broken (and not just a little outdated).

Related to this issue??? The application will not load.  I have downloaded latest version from website and reinstalled the application but only get this attached message over and over again.

Did you uninstall using Revo or Appcleaner as mentioned above before reinstalling?  A standard uninstall is sometimes not enough.

Uninstall. Delete %appdata%\Evernote. Reinstall.

Thanks.  Unfortunately can't install unapproved software (uninstallers). Tried to manually wipe everything named Evernote.  I can access via web.  May be the final straw for me. Just tired of fighting bugs.  Thanks again.

You don't need to use Revo Uninstaller just delete %appdata%\Evernote. It does the same exact thing. Nothing of value is stored in the registry.

Actually it doing this manually you should remove %LocalAppData%\Programs\Evernote
Documents\Evernote together with the directory selected to store the Evernote data if you have chosen to change that in settings. That's in addition to %AppData%\Evernote as suggested.

Don't delete that. That will leave an Uninstall entry in the registry. It's best to uninstall from Control Panel or Settings and then remove %appdata%\Evernote. Uninstalling will remove the binaries in %localappdata%\Programs\Evernote as well as the entries Windows creates in the registry.

In reality all that needs to be done to clean up an Evernote install is quit Evernote from the menu or open a run box and type taskkill /f /im evernote.exe and delete %appdata%\Evernote and reopen. Electron apps are fairly simple, it's the associated Chromium profile and database that breaks, not the actual installation.

I work in IT for a living, primarily with Windows based systems and my MS is in Cyber Security. I know Windows like the back of my hand. There is no need to waste your time with all of these other steps. They simply will waste time and not do anything to help.

Big jump to Version 10.97.1

Not really 😓. None of my biggest issues are fixed therein. Release notes tell the following:

New Features:

  • When opening a note link on Evernote web, you can now switch to the desktop app with a single click

Fixes:

  • Performance improvements and miscellaneous bug fixes

Whow - couldn't they tell us what "miscellaneous bug fixes" mean?
