We’re once again happy to announce a new version of Tailscale.
What comes after 0.99? 0.100, of course!
This is a pretty notable release, containing a major rewrite of our “magicsock” connection code that sits between WireGuard and the network, finding the best path between peers and getting through NATs.
If you’ve had any connection woes previously, definitely give this a try.
One catch, though: the new 0.100 connectivity code only kicks in if two peers trying to connect to each other are both running 0.100 or later. So make sure you update all your devices.
How to update:
- Linux: see https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/ (
- Windows: from that same page, download tailscale-ipn-setup-0.100.0-107.exe
- macOS: update from the Mac App Store (you’ll likely need to stop Tailscale first; the App Store doesn’t seem to update VPN apps that are running)
- iOS: we’re giving it a few days until we mark 0.100 as our stable build on iOS, but you can join our TestFlight beta program to get it today
- Android: the latest Tailscale Android beta builds use the new 0.100 connectivity code
In addition to the connectivity improvements, there are a number of other fixes and cleanups:
- The Linux client now respects DNS settings set in the Tailscale admin console.
- The Windows client now has “About” and “Exit” menu options. The “About” dialog will show the current stable version. (No auto-update option yet, but it’s a start.) Windows service start-up errors are now also surfaced in the UI, which is still a sad experience if it happens but should make for better Windows bug reports at least. We’re working on those. Long tail is long.
- The macOS client now stays off when you turn it off via the OS network settings.
tailscale statussubcommand (only currently included on Linux) now consistently shows asterisks around a peer endpoint address only when that path is active, and also now shows asterisks around DERP relays if that’s what’s being used.
And as always, email us or tweet us (@tailscale) if you have any problems and we’ll try to help.
