OpenVPN Connect Release notes for 1.1.13 build 53

* In addition to the standard OpenVPN core build for Android, we've added a new core build optimized for ARMv7-A processors. Newer devices will automatically select this build.

* Updated Android SDK, NDK:

  SDK: adt-bundle-mac-x86_64-20131030

  NDK: android-ndk-r9c

* Updated PolarSSL to 1.2.10.

* Known issue: In Android 4.4, the Android VPN API was modified so that VPN routes have absolute priority, even over local interfaces with more specific routes.  This change affects all VPN apps that use the Android VPN API.

* Added app flag android:allowBackup="false" to prevent app data such as profiles and encrypted credentials from being backed up.  This is seen as a security safeguard to prevent an attacker with physical access to the device from being able to easily extract profiles or encrypted credentials through Android's standard backup capabilities.

* Added new dialog that appears before the Android certificate selection dialog that allows profile to be connected without a client certificate, or allows user to continue (as before) to Android certificate selection dialog.

* Added "Force AES-CBC ciphersuites" preference.  This option constrains the OpenVPN TLS negotiation to one of two standard AES-CBC ciphersuites and is provided as a compatibility option when connecting to servers that use legacy SSL implementations.

* Added support for "http-proxy" and "http-proxy-option" directives in the profile.  Note that these directives are currently only supported in the main profile, outside of <connection> blocks. Also note that OpenVPN proxy settings set through the UI always have priority over proxy directives given in the profile.

* Added additional PKCS#1 signature methods.  This may fix an issue where the following error is seen in the log:

  "PolarSSLContext::epki_sign unrecognized parameters, mode=1 hash_id=11 hashlen=32"

* Allow importing of profiles where auth-user-pass directive references an external creds file.

* Allow importing of profiles originally created for Windows that reference external files (such as ca, cert, and key directives)

  using paths that contain backslashes as path separators.

* Added LZ4 compression support.

* Report client app name/version to server via IV_GUI_VER parameter.
