Build 1.4.005 released

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.

Hot fix released in version 1.4.004

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.
