A stable release is a version that has been tested as thoroughly as possible and is as reliable as we can make it. It does not have all the new features of a beta release and it does not have the latest fixes for problems.

A 'beta' release is a version that has been tested internally and is being tested by the wider community. It usually has fixes for bugs in the stable version, and has new features that are subject to change and need testing and may have their own bugs or limitations.

Beta versions of Tunnelblick are usually quite reliable and work well for most users. (Tens of thousands of Tunnelblick users use beta versions.)

The 'Preferences' panel of Tunnelbick's 'VPN Details' window has a checkbox which allows you to check for updates to beta versions or to check only for updates to stable versions.

PLEASE PROVIDE FEEDBACK about beta releases in the Tunnelblick Discussion Group.

When a new stable or beta version of Tunnelblick is available, it is announced to the Tunnelblick Announcement Group. Shortly after a new version is availble, it will be available as an automatic update from older versions.

All available releases may be found on the Downloads page.

Cumulative Release notes describe changes for all versions.

ABOUT VERSION NUMBERS

Beta versions are 'test' versions and precede stable versions with the same numbering. After one or more beta versions, a stable version is released.

A typical sequence of releases -- in chronological order -- might be something like:

  • 3.7.5beta01 -- First beta (test) version of 3.7.5
  • 3.7.5beta02 -- Second beta (test) version of 3.7.5
  • 3.7.5beta03 -- Third beta (test) version of 3.7.5
  • 3.7.5 -- First stable version of 3.7.5
  • 3.7.5a -- Second stable version of 3.7.5
  • 3.7.5b -- Third stable version of 3.7.5

Mar 14, 2021 Once run, Tunnelblick will display its opening welcome: Click “I have configuration files”. Tunnelblick will then tell you it doesn’t care. OK, not exactly, but it’ll tell you this isn’t the place to enter configuration files. Close the window. In the menu bar, click the new Tunnelblick icon and select Add a VPN. OpenVPN is a VPN protocol cum software that applies VPN techniques to protect point-to-point as well as site-to-site connections. Currently, OpenVPN provides the best balance of speed and security. However, it is quite complex, having over 600,000 lines of code, and not easy to implement.

Tunnelblick can be set up to connect a VPN manually, when the computer starts, or when Tunnelblick launches.

In most situations, the most appropriate choice is 'Manually' or 'Connect when Tunnelblick launches'.

Connect Manually means that you must click a 'Connect' button or menu item to connect to the VPN.

Connect when computer starts and Connect when Tunnelblick launches seem similar, and on a computer set up to log in a user automatically when it starts up they behave similarly, but they actually do two different things:

  • Connect when computer starts connects the VPN when the computer starts, whether or not a user will be logged in. It is usually used for VPN servers, not clients. Because there is no one logged in, Tunnelblick will not be launched or running – only OpenVPN will be running. That means that certain features are not available, such as checking that the IP address changes when connected.

  • Connect when Tunnelblick launches connects the VPN when the Tunnelblick program launches (starts) – and that can only happen when someone is logged in. You can launch Tunnelblick manually, but under certain circumstances Tunnelblick will launch itself when you log in. For example, if if you leave Tunnelblick running (with or without being connected to to a VPN) when you log out, Tunnelblick will be launched when you log back in. That's what most users do.

Notes:

  1. Connect when computer starts is only available for 'Shared' configurations. It is not available for 'Private' configurations.

  2. Connect when computer starts is only available for configurations that do not include the OpenVPN auth-user-pass option without parameters and do not have credentials saved in the Keychain. That's because there is nobody logged in when the computer starts, so no user can be asked for the credentials and no user's Keychain is available to access stored credentials. If your VPN requires a username/password, you can put them in a file. See the VPN Username/Password section of Using Tunnelblick as a VPN Server for details of how to set this up.

  3. Although Connect when computer starts may seem to be a way to insure that all network traffic goes through the VPN, it doesn't really do that. That's because the process of making the VPN connection itself requires an Internet connection, and that connection is available to other programs running on your computer. So traffic to the Internet can 'leak' outside of the VPN for seconds or tens of seconds until the VPN is actually connected. The only way to avoid such leaks is to set up a firewall such as pf to allow traffic only to/from the VPN server(s).
