Viscosity For Mac & Windows: Version 1.9.1

Viscosity version 1.9.1 is now available for both macOS and Windows! This update is primarily a maintenance release, and includes improved support for macOS 11, improved compatibility with OpenVPN configurations, updated OpenVPN and OpenSSL versions, and a number of small bug fixes and improvements for both platforms.

In particular, on the Mac side there have been a number of behind-the-scenes fixes and enhancements to improve compatibility and performance with macOS 11 (Big Sur). Support for Macs with Apple Silicon (M1) processors has also been improved.

Both the Mac and Windows versions will now also correctly handle the use of data-ciphers and related commands by automatically re-mapping them to the equivalent OpenVPN 2.4 commands.

Finally, this version also updates OpenVPN to version 2.4.10, and OpenSSL to version 1.1.1i, for both platforms.
