The OpenVPN community project team is proud to release OpenVPN 2.6.3.

This is a small bugfix release.

Feature changes:

* Windows: support setting DNS domain in configurations without GUI and DHCP
  (typically wintun or windco drivers), see GH ​openvpn#306. 

Windows MSI changes since 2.6.2:

* Several Windows-specific issues fixed:
  * ensure interactive service stays enabled after silent reinstall,
    see GH ​openvpn-build#348, ​openvpn-build#349 and ​openvpn-build#351
  * repair querying install path info for easyrsa-start.bat on some Windows
    language versions, see GH ​openvpn-build#352. 
* MSIs are now built against OpenSSL 3.1.0.
* Update included openvpn-gui to
  * This update removes the ability to change the password of a private key 
from the GUI.
    This was a niche feature which caused a direct dependency of GUI on OpenSSL.
    Use openssl.exe directly if you need to edit a private key. 

More details can be found in the Changes document:


(The Changes document also contains a section with work-arounds for
common problems encountered when using OpenVPN with OpenSSL 3)
