    Would really not recommend wireguard as I have used it with Ubuntu and CentOS. Rater prefer Ivacy for Linux.

    It is honestly not surprising to see it taking a while. Going by this article they seem to be not caring too much about how the code is written, but how it is integrating. As it is also a lot of interest around this feature they probably want to make sure they get it right first time around.
