Hello!

We're very glad to inform you that a new Eddie Air client version has been released: 2.15.2. As usual, Eddie is released as free and open source software under GPLv3.

Eddie 2.15.2 includes an important bug fix for Windows users who change the default settings and force Network Lock to work with "Windows Firewall" (an option that anyway remains not recommended, Windows Filtering Platform should be preferred). You can see the changelog here: https://airvpn.org/services/changelog.php?software=client&format=html

Network Lock is an Eddie feature that prevents any type of traffic leak outside the VPN tunnel https://airvpn.org/faq/software_lock

Eddie includes a full, seamless and integrated IPv6 support, as well as new features which will let you use our latest service additions including IPv6 and tls-crypt: https://airvpn.org/topic/28153-ipv6-support-and-new-smart-features/

Users who have only IPv4 connectivity will be able to access IPv6 services, At the same time users who have only IPv6 (and not IPv4) connectivity, will be able to use our service as well.

tls-crypt implementation provides a new, interesting way to efficiently bypass blocks and throttling against OpenVPN.

This version has been released for GNU/Linux, OS X (Mavericks or higher is required), macOS and Windows (Vista or higher is required).

2.15.2 version is compatible with several Linux distributions. For important notes about environments, please read here:

https://airvpn.org/topic/27259-status-of-eddie-on-linux-distributions/

Just like previous versions, Eddie implements direct Tor support for OpenVPN over Tor connections. Eddie makes OpenVPN over Tor easily available to Linux, OS X and macOS users: no needs for Virtual Machines, middle boxes or other special configurations. Windows users will find a more friendly approach as well. This mode is specifically designed for Tor and therefore solves multiple issues, especially in Linux and OS X/macOS, including the "infinite routing loop" problem (see for example http://tor.stackexchange.com/questions/1232/me-tor-vpn-how/1235#1235 )

As far as we know, Eddie is the first and currently the only OpenVPN wrapper that natively allows OpenVPN over Tor connections for multiple Operating Systems. https://airvpn.org/tor Since version 2.14, Eddie sends a NEWNYM signal to Tor to ensure the use of a new circuit in every connection.

We recommend that you upgrade Eddie as soon as possible.

Eddie 2.15.2 for GNU/Linux can be downloaded here: https://airvpn.org/linux
Eddie 2.15.2 for Windows can be downloaded here: https://airvpn.org/windows
Eddie 2.15.2 for OS X Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan and macOS Sierra and High Sierra can be downloaded here: https://airvpn.org/macosx

PLEASE NOTE: Eddie 2.15.2 package includes an OpenVPN version re-compiled by us from OpenVPN 2.4 source code to fix this bug: https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/ticket/328

Eddie overview is available here: https://airvpn.org/software
Eddie includes a Network Lock feature: https://airvpn.org/faq/software_lock
Eddie is free and open source software released under GPLv3. GitHub repository: https://github.com/AirVPN/airvpn-client

Kind regards & datalove

Curious.  Why a release for linux and OS X if the only change is for Windows?

Read the changelog and you'll find that there were other changes in a previous version (2.15.1) that apparently wasn't released.

Hello! Because you need to compare changes against version 2.14.5, since 2.15.1 has not been promoted to stable. Bug fixes and changes on version 2.15.1 have been kept in version 2.15.2 for Linux and Mac. In this way Linux, Mac and Windows systems are "aligned" to use the same release number for the latest stable version.

 

Kind regards

Integration of the portable version into the system menu (start menu) is still not possible. Trying to do so on Fedora 28 KDE (64 bit) still results in a Lib.Platform.Linux.Native.so error message. The only way to start the portable version is to start it in a terminal.

On openSUSE Leap 15 Eddie does not want to close.
Do get question yes or no, but if I click yes nothing happens.
Not a big problem, because you can just shut down your PC.
Would you like to report.

Issue confirmed. Under investigation.

Curiosity: Why you don't simply install the .rpm package?

I would love to have .rpm's (and other a kind) as well as folder/direct links to older versions clearly displayed on "Enter" page or so, just so that if something breaks, I could pinpoint the culprit by downgrading step-by-step. And/or then moving on to other packages, if necessary.

 

Also, downgrade & hold for working version cmd's would be very welcome for those of us lacking/forgetting how packages and updates work in Linux, but I guess Google is almost as good regarding this on more generic view.

Because I prefer portable versions. No install/ uninstall needed, just copy & paste or delete and the job is done.
