OpenVPN 2.4-alpha1 preview installers available

Post by samuli » Tue Oct 11, 2016 10:40 am

Hi all,

We're really close to OpenVPN 2.4-alpha1 release now. In yesterday's IRC meeting[1] we deemed that "late this week" might be doable.

However, we'd need to help with testing these preview installers:
Note that the installers contain a much improved OpenVPN-GUI that behaves differently under the hood from the one bundled in OpenVPN 2.3.x:
The installer also contains a new, much improved Windows system service called openvpnserv2:
Based on earlier tests openvpnserv2 should be able to handle suspend/resume gracefully. It should also automatically restart a connection that dies for whatever reason.

So far the installers linked to above have passed some basic tests:
If you can, please test the installers in your environment and let us know how it went: we'd like to minimize the chance of breaking existing setups before we make the official 2.4-alpha1 release.
