Alkasir team members Walid Al-Saqaf (founder) and Thomas Frössman (lead developer) presented Alkasir version 2.0 during a workshop in the Circumvention Tech Festival held in Valencia during 2-6 March.
The event was an opportunity to showcase the main differences and expected features that the new version, to be released later this year, are. Among the most distinct differences are the following:
First of all, we wish you all a Happy New Year full of prosperity and success.
It's been quite awhile since new updates or announcements were published. We apologize for the long silence. However, Alkasir remains working with thousands still using it normally.
We have just released build 1.4.005 which has some enhancements to speed up the connecting process and fix some occasional instances when the ISP was not detected.
We got reports of some issues with version 1.4.003, so we updated the version today with 1.4.004.
Kindly ensure that you get that version as it is more robust.
Our apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your support.
On behalf of alkasir's team, we wish you a happy new year and are happy to inform you that an updated version of alkasir (now 1.4.003) is now available for download at https://alkasir.com/downloads.
We strongly recommend that you delete your old version and install the new one into a fresh and new directory.
Due to excessive usage of the server and some technical issues, alkasir team had to change several parameters and settings to ensure more reliable service to users. Hence, the new build has taken those into consideration to provide a more seamless service.
Due to an unexpected downtime caused by some hardware fault that was beyond our control, the server was down temporarily for the last two days and has now fully recovered.
We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
Furthermore, we wish you a happy new year.
