    Release Notes: This release fixes reading configuration files that do not end with a newline, allows arbitrary configuration options to be specified on the command line, allows all options in both tinc.conf and the local host config file, and has configurable replay window, UDP send and receive buffers for performance tuning. It tries harder to get UDP communication back after falling back to TCP. There is now support for running tinc on DragonFly BSD and for attaching tinc to a VDE switch.

      Release Notes: tinc may now be built without LZO or Zlib. MSS of TCP packets can be clamped in both directions. Experimental StrictSubnets, Forwarding, and DirectOnly options were added, giving you more control over information and packets received from or sent to other nodes. tinc never sends symbolic names for ports over the wire anymore.

        Release Notes: This release really allows fast roaming of hosts to other nodes in a switched VPN, fixes potentially missing or incorrect environment variables when calling host-up/down and subnet-up/down scripts, allows the port to be specified in Address statements, clamps MSS of TCP packets to the discovered path MTU, and lets two nodes behind NAT learn each other's current UDP address and port via a third node, potentially allowing direct communications in a similar way to STUN.

          Release Notes: This release fixes a potential crash when the HUP signal is sent, fixes unnecessary broadcasts in switch mode, uses UDP in some cases where 1.0.10 fell back to TCP unnecessarily, and allows fast roaming of hosts between nodes in a switched VPN.

            Release Notes: This release fixes potential crashes during shutdown and in rare conditions. It improves NAT handling: tinc now copes with mangled port numbers, and will automatically fall back to TCP if direct UDP connection between nodes is not possible. Old RSA keys are disabled when generating new ones, and the default size of new RSA keys has been raised to 2048 bits. There are many fixes in the path MTU discovery code. Tinc can now drop privileges and/or chroot itself. The performance on Windows is improved.

              Release Notes: This release lets tinc work as a service under Windows 2003, properly handles configuration files that do not end with a newline, fixes crashes in some situations, fixes a memory leak, and has better default settings.

                Release Notes: This release fixes some memory and resource leaks, and makes network sockets non-blocking under Windows.

                  Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that caused slow network speeds on Windows and a bug that caused tinc to be unable to write packets to the tun device on OpenBSD.

                    Release Notes: This release has more flexible detection of the LZO libraries when compiling, and fixes a bug where broadcasts in switch and hub modes sometimes would not work anymore when part of the VPN had become disconnected from the rest.

                      Release Notes: Several small bugs have been fixed. Broadcast packets in switch mode no longer grow in size with each hop. Generic host-up and host-down scripts can now be called. A dump of the network graph can be written periodically in graphviz format. The LZO library version 2.0 and later is now supported.
