OK. First 2.0b1 crashed on launching. I erased the prefs of 1.3.6
and 2.0b1 started launching, but nothing could be made with
profiles, and CotVNC didn't select an encoding when connecting to
a server. I opened 1.3.6 again, created a profile, closed 1.3.6,
opened 2.0b1, and now profiles and encodings work again. There's
whole sections of the .plist preference file that 2.0b1 doesn't create
correctly. Add the following to the file ~/Library/Preferences/
com.geekspiff.chickenofthevnc.plist :

<key>ConnectProfiles</key>
<dict>
<key>default</key>
<dict>
<key>E3BTimeout</key>
<string>50</string>
<key>EnableCopyRect</key>
<string>1</string>
<key>EnabledEncodings</key>
<string>255</string>
<key>Encodings</key>
<array>
<string>0</string>
<string>1</string>
<string>2</string>
<string>3</string>
<string>4</string>
<string>5</string>
<string>6</string>
<string>7</string>
</array>
<key>NewAltKey</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>NewCommandKey</key>
<integer>0</integer>
<key>NewControlKey</key>
<integer>2</integer>
<key>NewShiftKey</key>
<integer>3</integer>
<key>PixelFormat</key>
<string>1</string>
</dict>
</dict>

After this, profiles, encodings and CotVNC should start working.

    Good suggestions. This is my recommended work-around for this issue
    until we've got a fix in place. Thanks!

    Okay, here's a not-easy work-around for this issue:

    - Delete your preferences (<home
    directory>/Library/Preferences/
    com.geekspiff.chickenofthevnc.plist)
    - Launch Chicken 1.3.6
    - From the Edit menu, choose Profiles
    - Type the name of a new profile
    - Press the New button
    - Press the Delete button
    - Quit Chicken
    - Launch Chicken 2.0b1 and use normally.

    Fixed for 2.0b2 release. Closing.
