Version 1.1.1 released on February 02, 2017
Changes between 1.1.0 and 1.1.1: * updated ovpn3 backend and plugin * better support for NAT64 * workaround for sweet32 vulnerability * implementation of relay protocol Changes between 1.0.7 and 1.1.0: * The OpenVPN Setting "Force AES-CBC ciphersuites" is now off by default. If you experience connection issues with this change, you can easily turn it back on in the Settings App under OpenVPN. * Known issue: sometimes after install, the OpenVPN settings in the Settings app may vanish. This is a known iOS issue. A suggested workaround is to quit the Settings app by double-tapping the home button, and then dragging Settings out of the list of apps. The next time you launch Settings, the OpenVPN settings ought to show up. * NAT64 is now fully supported. * Improved network reachability detection. * Implemented automatic per-key data limits on Blowfish and other 64-bit block-size ciphers to sidestep "Sweet32" vulnerability (CVE-2016-6329). * Relaxed mbedTLS/PolarSSL certificate date checking: 1. allow dates that omit the seconds field 2. allow dates that specify a timezone This should solve the error "PolarSSL: error parsing cert certificate : X509 - The date tag or value is invalid" * Added fix for error "digest_error: NONE: not usable". * Added mbedTLS/PolarSSL log level setting. * Library updates: mbedTLS/PolarSSL : 1.3.17

Version 1.0.7 released on May 31, 2016
Changes in 1.0.7 (from 1.0.5): * Updated mbedTLS (formerly PolarSSL). * The OpenVPN Setting "Force AES-CBC ciphersuites" is now off by default. If you experience connection issues with this change, you can easily turn it back on in the Settings App under OpenVPN. * Added "Minimum TLS version" setting. If you experience connection issues with this option, try setting it to "Disabled" in the Settings App under OpenVPN. * Added AES-GCM cipher support. * Developers can now detect if OpenVPN is installed: BOOL installed = [application canOpenURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"openvpn://"]]; * Library updates: mbedTLS : 1.3.16

Version 1.0.5 released on September 15, 2014
Changes between 1.0.4 and 1.0.5: * Fixed Import Profiles bug that affects 1.0.4 on iOS 8. This issue causes OpenVPN to fail to detect new profiles that are available for import. * Support new iOS 8 feature where Settings App can be used to launch native OpenVPN profiles. Note that only autologin profiles (i.e. profiles that don't require credential entry) can be launched using this mechanism. * Added "Seamless Tunnel" setting (See OpenVPN section of Settings App) for iOS 8 and higher. Make a best-effort to keep the VPN tunnel active during pause, resume, and reconnect states to minimize the likelihood of packet leakage during sleep/wakeup and network reconfiguration events. * Connection speed improvements. * Support OpenVPN "float" directive. * Don't fail the connection when OpenVPN "topology net30" directive is mixed with "ifconfig-ipv6", since the topology setting doesn't really affect IPv6. * Recognize backslash as a directory separator, to allow import of Windows profiles. * Library updates: PolarSSL : 1.3.8 Boost : 1.56.0

Version 1.0.4 released on January 29, 2014
Changes between 1.0.3 and 1.0.4: * Added "Force AES-CBC ciphersuites" setting to revert to SSL/TLS negotiation strategy used in OpenVPN Connect 1.0.0 and 1.0.1. This option constrains the OpenVPN TLS negotiation to one of two standard AES-CBC ciphersuites and is provided as a compatibility option when connecting to servers that use legacy SSL implementations. * Known issue: Automatic reconnect/wakeup onto cellular data doesn't work with iOS 7.0.x. A fix is expected in iOS 7.1. * Known issue: IPv6 tunnel routes may not be added to the routing table on iOS 7. Workaround: use redirect-gateway instead of pushing specific IPv6 routes. For example, from the server: push "redirect-gateway ipv6" or client: redirect-gateway ipv6 Note that iOS 7 requires that if redirect-gateway is used, that it is used for both IPv4 and IPv6 as the above directive accomplishes. * Added support for "http-proxy" and "http-proxy-option" directives in the profile. Note that these directives are currently only supported in the main profile, outside of blocks. Also note that proxy settings in the Settings app under OpenVPN always have priority over proxy directives given in the profile. * Worked around an issue where connect slider control was sending repeating ON/OFF messages to the app. This could potentially cause connection failures where the connect slider control would move into the ON position, the credentials fields would be cleared, but no connection would occur, or the connection slider would freeze in the OFF position. * iOS 7 allows OpenVPN VPN-On-Demand (VoD) profiles to be connected and disconnected using the Settings App. * Allow "Certificate" field in UI to remain unselected for profiles that connect without a client certificate. * Re-added support for DES-CBC cipher that was inadvertently dropped in 1.0.2 (Note: DES-CBC is an obsolete, insecure cipher that should no longer be used. It is provided only for compatibility with legacy systems). * Added additional PKCS#1 signature methods. This may fix an issue where the following error is seen in the log: "PolarSSLContext::epki_sign unrecognized parameters, mode=1 hash_id=11 hashlen=32" * Added new OpenVPN Setting "Network state detection" that allows control over how OpenVPN handles network state changes. For more info, see app Help FAQ under the section "What is the meaning of the various OpenVPN settings in the iOS Settings App?" * Support iOS .mobileconfig profiles that contain standard OpenVPN profiles (previously only VPN-On-Demand .mobileconfig profiles were supported). See app Help for detailed instructions on how to create an OpenVPN .mobileconfig profile. * Allow importing of profiles via iTunes where auth-user-pass directive references an external creds file. * Added LZ4 compression support. * Report client app name/version to server via IV_GUI_VER parameter.
