We’re excited to share the new IPVanish Windows client 2.0 release.  The new Windows client is now in the public beta testing phase.  The IPVanish team has opened the beta up to all current and new VPN subscribers so you can take it for a test drive.  I did and was impressed with the new user interface.  If you’re not already a member IPVanish is offering our guests a 25% discount.  Enjoy unlimited VPN from just $4.87 a month.  Once you sign up for service and receive your welcome email you can download the new beta client here.

There are a number of ways to select a server location in the new IPVanish 2.0 Windows client.  My favorite is the Map tab of the Server Selection area.  You can easily move the map around and find all the server locations in your area or anywhere else in the world.  My favorite feature of the map is the zoom in and out feature.  When you zoom out the client will show the total number of servers in a large area like it is for the UK in the map above.  Then when you zoom in on that area of the map it will break down the server locations as shown below:

I’m really just starting to scratch the surface of the new features and functionality of the IPVanish 2.0 software.  Rather than wait a few days I wanted to share the news of the beta so you can test it out as well.  Please remember it’s a beta so if you run into any issues you always have the option of running the older version.  If you have the IPVanish client already installed the new 2.0 beta won’t overwrite it which is nice.  You can choose between either version of the client.  I plan to stick with the 2.0 version and will share more in a few days.
