For those who are interested feel free to check out http://www.firetrust.com/en/products/hideaway

And assuming you're wondering what HideAway is :

HideAway intercepts and diverts your traffic based on application or website, for example, if you live in Greenland and you want to watch Netflix, then when you go to Netflix.com it will divert the Netlfix traffic to USA, likewise if you want to watch Sky Sport in the UK, then that portion of the internet traffic will be diverted to the UK.

Naturally, it's more suited to those folks in countries who are constantly being geo-blocked, like us in little old NZ

<removed old version>

Note this is a boot-strapper and will require to download more files during installation.

Updated Chromium Embedded Framework
Misc small fixes

Note : As we've updated the CEF it will require to download this updated package, so expect a 25MB download during the install process. The old CEF package we were using was almost 2 years old, so we ought not to see too many updates to this. The new CEF means we should get the screen resizing nicely very soon.

You *must* uninstall any old version of HideAway first. You can use your MW Mobile logon if you have one once installed.

Changes Include :
Well, bucket loads really.
Encryption added
Licensing
More default rules
Many many bug fixes and other improvements




License Keys available for testers, just indicate interest.
Currently too one license per 'profile' and duplicate copies cannot run at the same time with the same login. Next week we'll change that to something more friendly.

A new version of HideAway is now ready.

Changes Include :
Hulu now works
Search Box outline now darker grey
Launch windows after install now comes to front
Right click menu works for paste
Fixes for notifications around expired account

The only change is disabling browser DNS caching. We've found often when Netflix attempts to move to the next episode of a show it can incorrectly set your region to your true location, and if that show isn't available in that region you'll get an error. We are going to find a more elegant solution, so this is an interim fix. Feel free to skip this version if you're not having issues.

Changes Include :
Installer now disable browser DNS cache, reverts on uninstall.

Just a heads up, I've moved the old discussions into the Beta Testing category as we're slowly progressing with a 'soft launch'.

Cheers

New beta version of HideAway is now ready. Note this won't appear on the website at this stage, another build or two likely to come.

You will need to uninstall your old version of HideAway first before install. We're are going to fix that soon I promise :)
You won't lose your rules, these are tied to your account when you logon.


Change Include :
Traffic screen added : This updates regularly, so useful for knowing what's being filtered and what traffic is present, note too this will drain machine resources to display continually.
Chromecast support fixed
Rules are weighted : Websites rules take precedence over browser process rules, and these take precedence over whole computer rules. UI support for more control coming soon.
Changed DNS Leak rule from port 53 to svchost.exe as some people had problems with email after port 53 redirected
Fix for Win7 having too many network drivers installed
Various other fixes and changes

Australian server added

A new version of HideAway is ready 1.4.0

These changes were made server side, so to get the updated changes just restart HideAway.


Changes Include :
Extra information added into the pre-defined filters.
You can now delete a profile and edit the name by clicking on the email address at the top right, then the cog icon. You can only delete the profile you’re on though, so you’d need to switch to each profile to delete each one if needed.


Installer changes :
HA now silently uninstalls old version first before installing new version.


Download Link is here, but reminder, the actual changes mentioned above (apart from installer) are done if you just restart your existing HideAway.

We've been prototyping a DNS tunnel version of HideAway, if anyone is interested in helping us test it.


It does require editing the HOSTS file at present, so does require some tech savvy. And we presently only have a US server you can redirect through.
Details on editing HOSTS file here http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/27350/be ... osts-file/


To setup, simply edit your HOSTS file and point the domain to 45.63.61.142

Code: Select all

45.63.61.142    www.netflix.com
Also be sure if you do set this up, you have no active rules in HideAway filtering the same. So if you set it up for Netflix, disable any Netflix/browser rule.
