    Staff got a reaction from eburom in Hummingbird 1.1.0 released   ...
    Hello!

    We're very glad to inform you that we have just released Hummingbird 1.1.0, featuring:
    both SystemV-style init and systemd support for Linux update to the latest OpenVPN3-AirVPN and asio libraries
    Hummingbird is AirVPN's free and open source OpenVPN 3 client based on AirVPN's OpenVPN 3 library fork. Hummingbird is available for: Linux x86-64 (reasonably recent distribution on par with Debian 9 libraries and kernel is required) Linux ARM 32 (example: Raspbian for Raspberry Pi) Linux ARM 64 (example: Ubuntu 19 and 20 for Raspberry Pi) macOS (Mojave or higher version required - please read important notes for Mac users at the end of the announcement)
    Main features:
    Lightweight and stand alone binary No heavy framework required, no GUI Tiny RAM footprint Lightning fast Based on OpenVPN 3 library fork by AirVPN with tons of critical bug fixes from the main branch, new ciphers support and never seen before features ChaCha20-Poly1305 cipher support on both Control and Data Channel providing great performance boost on ARM, Raspberry PI and any Linux-based platform not supporting AES-NI. Note: ChaCha20 support for Android had been already implemented in our free and open source Eddie Android edition robust leaks prevention through Network Lock based either on iptables, nftables or pf through automatic detection proper handling of DNS push by VPN servers, working with resolv.conf as well as any operational mode of systemd-resolved additional features  
    For a thorough Hummingbird overview please consult https://airvpn.org/hummingbird/readme/

    Hummingbird 1.1.0 adds support to Linux systems based on SystemV-style init https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Init#SYSV too, while the previous versions supported Linux systemd based systems only.

    Therefore, we gladly achieve compatibility with 35 additional Linux distributions:
    https://distrowatch.com/search.php?ostype=All&category=All&origin=All&basedon=All&notbasedon=None&desktop=All&architecture=All&package=All&rolling=All&isosize=All&netinstall=All&language=All&defaultinit=SysV&status=Active#simple

    We think it's important to support Init Freedom:
    https://devuan.org/os/init-freedom

    because systemd is POSIX incompatible and because, as the UNIX Veteran Admin collective noticed in 2014 when they announced a Debian fork: This situation prospects a lock in systemd dependencies which is de-facto threatening freedom of development and has serious consequences for Debian, its upstream and its downstream.
    You can download Hummingbird for Linux (all flavors) and macOS respectively here:
    https://airvpn.org/linux

    and here:
    http://airvpn.org/macos

      Important notes for macOS users
    From now on we provide both a signed, code-hardened, notarized version and a non-notarized version of Hummingbird for macOS. The notarized version is available essentially for those users who prefer it, but it is not recommended.

    The notarized version will run without blocks by Apple's Gatekeeper, but will let Apple correlate your real IP address, Apple ID and other data potentially disclosing your identity to the fact that you run, and when you did it for the first time, an application by AirVPN.

    If that's not acceptable for you, just download the tarball package .tar.gz (it is NOT notarized and NOT signed with our Apple developer ID on purpose) and include it in the exceptions to run non-notarized programs.

    In the future this could not be allowed anymore, but at the moment it is. For a more thorough explanations on important privacy issues caused by Apple and notarization please see for example here https://lapcatsoftware.com/articles/notarization-privacy.html and here https://lapcatsoftware.com/articles/catalina-executables.html

    Hello!

    We're very glad to inform you that a new 1 Gbit/s server located in Vienna (AT) is available: Beemim.

    The AirVPN client will show automatically the new server; if you use any other OpenVPN client you can generate all the files to access it through our configuration/certificates/key generator (menu "Client Area"->"Config generator").

    The server accepts connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 1194, 2018 UDP and TCP.

    Just like every other "second generation" Air server, Beemim supports OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.2 and tls-crypt.

    Full IPv6 support is included as well.

    As usual no traffic limits, no logs, no discrimination on protocols and hardened security against various attacks with separate entry and exit-IP addresses.

    You can check the server status as usual in our real time servers monitor:
    https://airvpn.org/servers/Beemim/

    Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue.

    Hello!

    When you enter suspension state systemd sends SIGHUP to processes.Hummingbird reacts with "restart connection" when it receives SIGHUP. Core dump is unexpected and under investigation.

    The systemd unit is formally correct.

    Staff got a reaction from hawkflights in Hummingbird 1.0.3 released   ...
    Hello!

    We're glad to inform you that Hummingbird 1.0.3 has just been released.

    Hummingbird is a free and open source software by AirVPN for:
    Linux x86-64 Linux ARM 32 (example: Raspbian for Raspberry Pi) Linux ARM 64 macOS (Mojave or higher version required) - please do not miss important notes on macOS below based on OpenVPN3-AirVPN 3.6.4 library supporting CHACHA20-POLY1305 cipher on OpenVPN Data Channel and Control Channel. Hummingbird is very fast and has a tiny RAM footprint. AES-CBC and AES-GCM are supported as well.

    Version 1.0.3 uses OpenVPN3-AirVPN 3.6.4 library which had major modifications:
    IPv6 compatibility has been improved override logic has been improved a critical bug related to a main branch regression for TCP connections has been fixed
    Important: if you build Hummingbird please make sure to align to AirVPN library 3.6.4. You can't build Hummigbird 1.0.3 with library versions older than 3.6.4.

    Hummingbird is not aimed to Android but you can have CHACHA20-POLY1305 on Android too: please run our software Eddie Android edition, which uses our OpenVPN3-AirVPN library.
     
      Important notes for macOS users
    From now on we provide both a notarized version and a non-notarized version of Hummingbird for macOS. The notarized version is available essentially for those users who required it, but it is not recommended.

    The notarized version will run without blocks by Apple's Gatekeeper, but will let Apple correlate your real IP address, Apple ID and other data potentially disclosing your identity to the fact that you run, and when you did it for the first time, an application by AirVPN.

    If that's not acceptable for you, just download the tarball package .tar.gz (it is NOT notarized and NOT signed with our Apple developer ID on purpose) and include it in the exceptions to run non-notarized programs.

    In the future that could be no more allowed, but at the moment it is. For a more thorough explanations on important privacy issues caused by Apple and notarization please see for example here https://lapcatsoftware.com/articles/notarization-privacy.html and here https://lapcatsoftware.com/articles/catalina-executables.html
     
    Notes for Linux users
    x86-64 version requires a reasonably recent distribution (at least on par with Debian 9 kernel and libraries) based on systemd. A version compatible with SysVInit is anyway planned armv7l version (32 bit) has been tested in Raspberry Pi 3 and 4 with Raspbian 10. It will not run in Raspbian 9 (libraries are too old) aarch64 version (for 64 bit ARM) has been tested in Raspberry Pi4 with Ubuntu 19 and Ubuntu 20 for ARM 64 bit
     
    TCP queue limit
    If you connect over TCP, Hummingbird will set by default a minimum TCP outgoing queue size of 512 packets to avoid TCP_OVERFLOW errors. If you need a larger queue in TCP, the following option is now available from command line, in addition to profile directive tcp-queue-limit:
     
    --tcp-queue-limit n
    where n is the amount of packets. Legal range is 1-65535.

    We strongly recommend you to allow at least 512 packets as queue limit (default value). Larger queues are necessary when you connect in TCP and need a lot of open connections with sustained (continuous) but not necessarily high throughput, for example if you run a BitTorrent software. In such cases you can enlarge the queue as much as you need, until you stop getting TCP_OVERFLOW.

    It's not uncommon from our community as well as our internal tests to set 4000 packets queue limit to prevent any TCP overflow.

    If you connect over UDP, you can ignore all of the above.
     

    Network Lock
    Network Lock prevents traffic leaks outside the VPN tunnel through firewall rules. Hummingbird 1.0.3 widens --network-lock option arguments. The following arguments are now accepted:
    on  | off  | iptables | nftables | pf  (default: on).

    If you specify on argument, or you omit --network-lock option, Hummingbird will automatically detect and use the infrastructure available on your system. Hummingbird picks the first available infrastructure between iptables-legacy, iptables, nftables and pf.



    Note: command line options, when specified, override profile directives, when options and profile directives have the same purpose.

    Hello!

    We would like to inform you that we have made every effort to ensure AirVPN full and efficient operation during the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2.
     
    In order to reduce hazard and safeguard health, AirVPN staff and personnel work exclusively from home and worked from home well before the current situation appeared clearly as a pandemic Each member has a landline and one or more mobile lines, when possible in different infrastructures, to maximize likelihood to stay connected to the Internet 24/7 AirVPN system is more efficiently automated and basic functioning requires no manual interventions, even for several months (if kernel upgrades hadn't been necessary, we would have had servers uptime of 4 years or more) AirVPN inner staff members have now overlapping competences. Therefore if a key member, including a founder, is forced to stop working, the other ones can carry out his/her functions Emergency funds already secured in the past in different facilities as well as banks remain unaltered and ensure AirVPN financial health for a very long time even in very harsh scenarios. However, we would like to assure you that they are not needed at all currently, quite the contrary. In the last 10 days we have experienced a substantial increase in the growth of our customer base We have been informed by our most important partners and providers of housing and hosting in Europe, America and Asia they they are, and expect to, remain fully operational

    Staff got a reaction from Lee47 in Wireguard response from Mullvad   ...
    @go558a83nk

    The main advantage over OpenVPN in terms of performance is the fact that Wireguard runs in the kernel space while OpenVPN runs in the userspace, Cipher CHACHA20 is available in OpenVPN too. It's slower than AES in AES-NI supporting systems, so it is very relevant only in those systems which do not support AES-NI, typically mobile and embedded devices based on ARM processors.

    So when Wireguard can't run in the kernel space (for example when you use it in Android or iOS) you lose that gain.

    The fact that Wireguard does not support TCP is bad for us, because it cuts out a  very remarkable percentage of our users: those who have their ISP blocking or heavily shaping UDP, those who need to pass through some proxy (which supports only TCP) to get on to the Internet, and those who need to tunnel the VPN protocol over SSH or sTunnel.

    From a two servers service located in a single country providing a handful of Mbit/s, the baby has grown up to a wide infrastructure in 22 countries in three continents, providing now 240,000+ Mbit/s to tens of thousands of people around the world.

    In 2019 and 2020, software development enhancement has paid off: now AirVPN develops on its own an OpenVPN3 forked library which resolves various problems from the main branch and adds new features. The library is used in Hummingbird, a free and open source software for Linux and Mac, known for its speed and compactness, in Eddie Android edition and in a new software which will be announced in June. Hummingbird has been released even for ARM based Linux devices, and runs fine for example in Raspberry PI.

    Eddie Desktop edition has been extensively rewritten to improve performance, reliability and security. Now anything not related to the user interface is written in C++ and a lot of security hardening has been implemented. Total compatibility with macOS Catalina, Windows 10 and latest Linux distributions has been achieved, and specific packages for various, widespread Linux distributions are available for easier installation.

    Eddie can act as a GUI for Hummingbird in Linux and Mac, while in Windows, Eddie can also be easily configured to run OpenVPN 2.5 with the wintun driver to achieve remarkable OpenVPN performance boost and put Windows on par with other systems OpenVPN throughput ability. Furthermore, the wintun driver resolves various problems which affected TAP-Windows driver.

    Development for OpenBSD and FreeBSD has been unfortunately re-planned but we're glad to announce here that it will continue, starting from summer 2020.

    All AirVPN applications and libraries are free and open source software released under GPLv3.

    We think that it's somehow surprising that AirVPN not only survived, but even flourished for 10 years, in an increasingly competitive market and increasingly privacy hostile environment.

    No whistles and bells, no marketing fluff, no fake locations, no advertising on mainstream media, a transparent privacy policy, no trackers on the web site or in mobile applications, no bullshit of any kind in our infrastructure to sell your personal data to any personal data merchant, and above all a clear mission that is the very reason which AirVPN operates for https://airvpn.org/mission , are probably, all together, the factors which allowed such a small "miracle" and maybe make AirVPN unique.

    Thank you all, you users, customers, members of the community, moderators, developers: the small "miracle" happened because of you, because you saw something in AirVPN.

    Kind regards and datalove

    Staff got a reaction from HannaForest in New 1 Gbit/s server available (AT)   ...
    Hello!

    We're very glad to inform you that a new 1 Gbit/s server located in Vienna (AT) is available: Beemim.

    The AirVPN client will show automatically the new server; if you use any other OpenVPN client you can generate all the files to access it through our configuration/certificates/key generator (menu "Client Area"->"Config generator").

    The server accepts connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 1194, 2018 UDP and TCP.

    Just like every other "second generation" Air server, Beemim supports OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.2 and tls-crypt.

    Full IPv6 support is included as well.

    As usual no traffic limits, no logs, no discrimination on protocols and hardened security against various attacks with separate entry and exit-IP addresses.

    You can check the server status as usual in our real time servers monitor:
    https://airvpn.org/servers/Beemim/

    Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue.

    Kind regards and datalove

    Hello!

    We made a Onion v3 address. The hidden service is provided by a dedicated server through http (no certificate warning), and we added HTTP-header "onion-location" that recommends the .onion version.

    Kind regards

    Staff got a reaction from yaranaika in SARS-CoV-2: precautionary measures taken by AirVPN   ...
    Hello!

    We would like to inform you that we have made every effort to ensure AirVPN full and efficient operation during the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2.
     
    In order to reduce hazard and safeguard health, AirVPN staff and personnel work exclusively from home and worked from home well before the current situation appeared clearly as a pandemic Each member has a landline and one or more mobile lines, when possible in different infrastructures, to maximize likelihood to stay connected to the Internet 24/7 AirVPN system is more efficiently automated and basic functioning requires no manual interventions, even for several months (if kernel upgrades hadn't been necessary, we would have had servers uptime of 4 years or more) AirVPN inner staff members have now overlapping competences. Therefore if a key member, including a founder, is forced to stop working, the other ones can carry out his/her functions Emergency funds already secured in the past in different facilities as well as banks remain unaltered and ensure AirVPN financial health for a very long time even in very harsh scenarios. However, we would like to assure you that they are not needed at all currently, quite the contrary. In the last 10 days we have experienced a substantial increase in the growth of our customer base We have been informed by our most important partners and providers of housing and hosting in Europe, America and Asia they they are, and expect to, remain fully operational
    Kind regards
