Hello,

would it be possible to provide the OpenVPN Connect Client Installer as Universal Binary and in .pkg format?
This would make distribution with MDM much easier.

Kind regards,
Patrick

Hello Patrick,

We're looking into possibilities but the capability to bundle connection profiles is a blocker in this regard at this time. Sorry.

Kind regards,
Johan

Hello,

Great to see that 3.4 is out. I've been waiting for the silicon version AND the fix for being able to hide the dock icon :D

I just wanted to flag that it took me a while to realise this version was available as the 3.3.6 version I had running kept telling me it was up to date and no updates were available. It's only when getting a little frustrated with the passage of time I came to manually check myself.

Is there a problem with 3.3.6 and it knowing about 3.4 being available?

EDIT: My only request now is for the icon to be in line with the current style Apple is going with (like the iOS app icons) :)

Hi aab203,

It's expected. First we release on the website, then on Access Server, and then finally we do update messages. We already released on the site, and we released on Access Server just last week, and it looks like this week we'll do the update messages. This is just to ensure a 'safe' release plan, as in, not hit every customer all at once with the same update.

Kind regards,
Johan
