- The same update also brings a "small additional performance boost to VPN connections."
- Viscosity is available from Sparklabs for $14.
Viscosity now supports Windows 10 on ARM devices, thanks to a new update. The OpenVPN client allows users to manage VPNs easily and is aimed at both seasoned VPN users and beginners to VPNs. The update brings Viscosity to version 1.8.2 and is available on both Windows and macOS.
As outlined by Sparklabs, the makers of Viscosity, this update includes updated versions of OpenVPN (2.4.8) and OpenSSL (1.1.1d). The post states that the Windows version of Viscosity received an overhaul.
The Windows version of Viscosity has also been overhauled to allow it to run on devices using ARM processors (WoA64 support). Along with supporting ARM, we've been able to include a small additional performance boost to VPN connections.
The update was shared on Reddit by Reddit user Grumphus256. That post points out that Surface Pro X owners would find it useful. While the Surface Pro X and other Windows 10 on ARM devices can run ARM64 apps and run 32-bit apps through emulation, they have compatibility issues with some pieces of software. The update to Viscosity gives people on these devices another VPN option.
This OpenVPN client makes it easy to connect to the web through a VPN and manage your VPN connections.
We test and review VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:
1. Accessing a service from another country (subject to the terms and conditions of that service).
2. Protecting your online security and strengthening your online privacy when abroad.
We do not support or condone the illegal or malicious use of VPN services. Consuming pirated content that is paid-for is neither endorsed nor approved by Future Publishing.
Review: NASCAR Heat 5 is still the complete package for fans
It's not long since NASCAR Heat 4 arrived, or at least, that's how it seems, with the new title arriving much earlier in the year than its predecessor. It's got some shiny new paint jobs and some neat new features, but many would be hard pressed to tell it apart from last year's game.
