What did you mean with "within next few weeks"?

We tried our best to add the proxy feature in 2.0.6, but unfortunately, a more urgent bug fix took priority. Thanks for your patience.

  1. Fixed bug on Mac where background service crashes on the first run
  2. Made the Linux and Mac uninstaller remove settings and config files
  3. Fixed bug where the combined log file can become corrupt
  4. Improved reliability of background service on all platforms
  5. Preparation work for upcoming enhancement due in the next version

1. Experienced by every Mac user, causing massive load on customer support.
2. This fixes a multitude of issues caused by corrupt configs, experienced by about 5% of users.
3. Affected about 10% of users that installed 2.0.5, so was obviously very urgent.
4. The background service crashing affected most users, in very innocuous ways.
5. A feature requested by many users, so was very important that we started work on it.

The proxy issue currently affects about 1% of users. However, it is an urgent issue, so we're trying our best to get this into 2.0.8 which is due in about 4 weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Shh, don't tell anyone, but that's what this is all about:

  • Preparation work for upcoming enhancement due in the next version

We tried our best to get it into 2.0.6, but it wasn't stable enough to release. Andrew and Jerry are putting the finishing touches on, ready for 2.0.7 :)

So, uninstall 2.0.6 and re-install 1.8.8...again. See you in a month. #fingerscrossed
