    I moved to Hummingbird 1.0.1 and despite a few minor bugs here and there it works great, much lighter and faster than Eddie.

    Hello,

    I was debating as to whether to post about Hummingbird and @dogbite post helped me to decide...

    Hummingbird entered alpha/beta testing on November 1, 2019 and the first stable version 1.0 was released on December 19, 2019.
    Read more about Hummingbird in the discussion here: Hummingbird 1.0: AirVPN client based on OpenVPN 3 AirVPN

    Hummingbird was updated to version 1.0.1 on January 24, 2020.
    Announcement and Discussion: Hummingbird 1.0.1 released
