UPDATE: a cable fault was determined to be the cause of hang at splash screen (need to trap PHY errors)

Also noticed some state corruption related to suspend/resume. Observed the following issues:

- widget appears in tray but connection is not routed through VPN
- widget disappears from tray but VPN connnection still active
- widget crashes on exit request and clearnet connectivity is not restored (but can reconnect to VPN if widget is relaunched)

+ Suggest testing for OS/CPU compatibility

(example: dont install latest TAP driver on XP/POSready, dont install binaries with SSE2 instructions on unsupported CPU)

PS - forum says you can edit your posts but edit button does not appear at the next login

I have been running v3 for 3 days now. Have seen no instability
under Windows 10. Works like a champ so far.

Just built a new widget v3.0.0.72 that includes code that now saves that connect timeout value (Under "Options" -> "Connecting") so it's remembered on restart.

Also OpenVPN/OpenSSL binaries/libraries upgraded to 2.3.16/1.0.2l.

@KungFuChe
XP is no longer supported. Anyone still on XP will have to stay on the older v2.22, which won't receive any new updates, unless some horribly vulnerable issue is discovered in the openvpn/openssl that version uses.
It's usually a bad idea to provide backwards compatibility for an OS version that stopped receiving security updates several years ago.
I do plan on doing more tests regarding the different ways internet can be disconnected and how to detect it so the widget responds accordingly.
Same goes for the different CPU features and architectures, and the systray issues that seem to vary by Windows version.

What is the correct v3 widget I should get ? Confusing.

Glad to see that XP is finally being killed off by providers!

@ATurtle
If anyone is still using XP, they clearly don't care about security.
You could argue that Microsoft updates doesn't equate to security (which is accurate), but since XP hasn't received security patches for several years now, using it under any pretense is just plain dumb.
Maybe in a system/VM that's offline, or behind such a restrictive firewall that nothing's possible... but then what's the point?
