We're very glad to inform you that a new Eddie Air client version has been released: 2.16.3. As usual, Eddie is released as free and open source software under GPLv3.
Eddie 2.16.3 includes important bug fixes. Please see the changelog:
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).
2.16.3 version is compatible with several Linux distributions. For important notes about environments, please read here:
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.
