Available as always for download from:



[1.0-rc2 2005-01-12]

New Features:
  Support for one level of subdirectories below the config directory.
  This means that if you have multiple connections, you can now put
  them in seperate subdirectories together with their keys and certs.

  "Service Only" mode. This is a mode that makes OpenVPN GUI more
  friendly to use for non-admin users to control the OpenVPN Service.
  Enable this mode by setting the registry value "service_only" to "1".

  In this mode the following happends:

    * The normal "Connect", "Disconnect" and "Show Status" is removed.

    * The Service menu items "Start", "Stop" and "Restart" is replaced
      by "Connect", "Disconnect" and "Reconnect" directly on the main
      menu. These now control the OpenVPN Service instead.

    * Dubbleclicking the icon starts the OpenVPN Service.

    * Dubbleclicking the icon when the service is running brings up a
      dialog asking if you want to disconnect.

    * The Proxy Settings menu item is removed as it can't control the
      service anyway.

  The "OpenVPN Service started" dialog msg is replaced with a
  balloon msg.

  Ask the user if he really wants to exit OpenVPN GUI if the OpenVPN
  Service is running.

Bug Fixes:
  Full rights were required to control the OpenVPN Service. Now only
  Start/Stop permissions are required, which allows a normal user to
  control the OpenVPN Service if these rights are granted to the user.
  (Can be done with subinacl.exe from the resource kit)

  When passwords were retrieved from a user, OpenVPN GUI received them
  in the default windows codepage (ISO 8859-1 on english XP), and this
  was passed on untouched to OpenVPN. When OpenVPN is run from command-
  line on the other hand, the old DOS CP850 codepage is used. This
  caused passwords containing non-ASCII (7-bit) chars that worked from
  cmd-line not to work from OpenVPN GUI. This is now solved by
  retrieving passwords in unicode and translate them to CP850 before
  supplying them to OpenVPN.

  Re-scan the config dir for new files when dubble-clicking the tray
