OpenVPN 2.4.1 released

Postby samuli » Wed Mar 22, 2017 5:14 pm

The OpenVPN community project team is proud to release OpenVPN 2.4.1. It can be downloaded from here.

Compared to OpenVPN 2.3 this is a major update with a large number of new features, improvements and fixes. Some of the major features are AEAD (GCM) cipher and Elliptic Curve DH key exchange support, improved IPv4/IPv6 dual stack support and more seamless connection migration when client's IP address changes (Peer-ID). Also, the new --tls-crypt feature can be used to increase users' connection privacy.

Compared to OpenVPN 2.4.0 there are several bugfixes and small enhancements. A summary of the changes is available in Changes.rst, and a full list of changes is available here.

OpenVPN GUI bundled with the Windows installer has a large number of new features compared to the one bundled with OpenVPN 2.3. One of major features is the ability to run OpenVPN GUI without administrator privileges. For full details, see the changelog. The new OpenVPN GUI features are documented here.

Please note that OpenVPN 2.4 installers will not work on Windows XP.
