Release highlights

If you tested our most recent beta releases, the majority of these updates will be familiar to you.

These are the key updates since our last stable release:

  • compatibility with Airdrop, Handoff, and similar services
  • visibility of the Quit button without needing to scroll in the Settings menu
  • if the app temporarily can't verify your account number when logging in, you will still be able to use the app as normal; if you've entered an invalid number, the app will signal this once you try connecting
  • the name of the VPN server (e.g. us-nyc-015) is now shown rather than its public IP address
  • periodic updates of the server locations list without having to restart the app
  • a fix that addresses issue MUL-01-001 in our recent security audit
  • the option to configure OpenVPN mssfix under Advanced settings
  • (Windows) fewer disruptions in VPN connection for those with an unstable Internet network
  • (Windows) improved connection speed for TCP protocol users
  • (Windows and Linux) fewer DNS-related issues
  • (Linux) a bug fix that, in certain distributions, prevented Internet access while connected to the VPN
  • (Linux) if you're a terminal user, you no longer need to create a symlink. the CLI binary is installed into /usr/bin/
  • (Linux) better support for scaling, and high-resolution monitors.
