New OVPN client (v1.4.2) with stability improvements

author David Wibergh,

Version 1.4.2 contains some improvements based on v1.4.1 and v1.4.0.

List of changes in the 1.4.2 version

  • Bug fix: show error message during installation in case the installer is on a network drive
  • Bug fix: reconnects works properly after the computer has been in sleep since the client no longer removes the password file for the OpenVPN management interface
  • Bug fix: the path to OVPNUninstaller.exe in the client log has been corrected
  • Bug fix: the checkbox for logs & diagnostics when sending a support message is now visible on macOS
  • Improvement: updated Qt to 5.12.3 for macOS
  • Improvement: removed unnecessary language files from the installer
  • Improvement: the maintenance tool (OVPNUninstaller.exe) is now codesigned using our certificate
  • Improvement: updated Qt Installer Framework to 3.1.1
  • Improvement: added a shortcut in the start menu for all users on Windows computers
  • Improvement: increased the reliability of DNS leak results by decreasing the risk of false positives
