Desktop client v2.4: DNS improvements & start minimized

Maximilian Holm, about Products & features

Version 2.4 has had a focus on reworking the way DNS addresses are handled in the client, as well as some bug fixes and a widely requested new feature.

List of changes in v2.4

    • Bug fix: DNS is no longer stuck on "Investigating" after successful connection on macOS
    • Bug fix: DNS will now correctly be replaced with ours on macOS regardless of network interface
    • Bug fix: DNS is now properly restored to previous settings after reconnections
    • Bug fix: DNS no longer leaks on Fedora
    • Bug fix: no longer throws a "missing packages" error on Ubuntu if resolvconf is missing
    • Bug fix: the client should no longer throw a "Limited functionality" message on Linux when the killswitch is triggered
    • Bug fix: fixed an issue where the "always-on" killswitch couldn't always be disabled
    • Bug fix: "next key rotation" timestamp now show the correct time
    • Bug fix: WireGuard keypair internal IP and public key will now always match
    • Bug fix: "Minimize to system tray" setting on Linux is now properly remembered across reboot
    • Bug fix: the client now properly blocks internet from the moment "Connect" is clicked on subsequent connections, rather than from when a connection has been established
    • Bug fix: the client now always properly recognizes its own WireGuard connection after waking up from sleep
    • Improvement: reworked how DNS addresses are handled, replaced and restored on all systems
    • New: added a "Start minimized" option to the client
