The OpenVPN 3 Linux client has been in the works for a number of months with some big features including a rewrite in C++11, exposing a D-Bus interface that yields a number of usability improvements, better DNS configuration, and various other enhancements.

Out today is the OpenVPN 3 Linux Beta 5 update that now uses OpenSSL (v1.0) by default in place of mbed TLS, improved configurations without client certificate, various other network configuration enhancements, improvements to the openvpn2 command-line interface, and various other changes.
