There has been a lot of turmoil about Apple excluding some of their own processes from third party firewalls. This release focuses on the problem and adds an option to uncover whitelisted connections in Network Monitor. This option is off by default. If you want to try it, please open Little Snitch.app > Preferences > Advanced and choose “Uncover whitelisted connections”.
This nightly build does not improve compatibility with other third party software. These incompatibilities are bugs in macOS and we can neither fix them, nor have we found any viable workarounds.
- Added an option to uncover connections bypassing Little Snitch and other Network Extension based firewalls.
- Better detection of VPNs for Automatic Profile Switching.
- Improved parsing of QUIC protocol to determine remote computer names. This helps getting rid of some connection alerts showing multiple server names.
- Improved indication of Little Snitch installation issues in the status menu icon.
- The macOS kernel is now treated as if it were code-signed. This allows the default localnet rules to apply to the kernel.
- Fixed a bug when loading subscribed rule groups where a rule group using an abbreviated format could appear empty.
- Fixed a possible crash when importing configurations from (Time Machine) backup.
- Incompatibility with some third-party software.
