Viscosity for Mac: Version 1.5

Viscosity version 1.5 for Mac is now available! This is our biggest update yet, with massive performance and security improvements! This version also brings full 64-bit support, greater support for the latest Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) beta and preview versions, and a snazzy new default menu icon with dark mode support.

Please note that version 1.5 ends support for Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6. Viscosity 1.4.10 is still available from the legacy downloads section for these users. In addition, with the move to 64-bit, VPN administrators utilising PKCS#11 should ensure that their driver/provider files are up to date and have 64-bit support.
