Version 1.7.8 of Viscosity has been released for both Mac and Windows! These updates place a focus on security and reliability, with enhancements to the OpenVPN engine on macOS, and DNS reliability improvements on Windows. In addition OpenVPN 2.4 has been updated to version 2.4.5, OpenSSL to version 1.0.2o, and a number of small improvements and bug fixes are included.
The Mac version includes a significant reworking of how OpenVPN connections are handled for added security. Connections now have enhanced protection against possible future threats that could arise against OpenVPN itself (both local and remote) by sandboxing and de-elevating the permissions of OpenVPN. This all happens behind the scenes, and shouldn't have any noticeable effect on your VPN connections. We hope to bring many of these features across to the Windows version in a future update as well.
The Windows version also includes a number of performance and stability improvements to the Full and Split DNS modes.
