The new version has just been approved for sale, updates are already being downloaded! First feedback is positive.
Currently working on a "companion" app for VPN Monitor which will allow users to interact with VPN Monitor by writing their own AppleScripts. The app "VPN Monitor Scripter" will execute an AppleScript whenever the connection status changes (connect or disconnect).
This will allow users to take custom actions, as for example (upon popular demand), halt all bittorrent transfers while the VPN connection is down and resume transfers when the connection is back up.
More to follow in the coming days/weeks ....
