A lot of our customers wished for an optimized support of OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra. With releasing the new, improved eBlocker OS 0.9.4 we are therefore providing a new exemption list for apple devices, so all macOS and iOS devices can be connected to the eBlocker without any problems. Additionally, we optimized the exemption lists for Amazon, Windows, Google and Facebook apps and have included additional exemption lists.General
The performance and stability for encrypted connections (SSL) has been improved.
Furthermore, the pause feature has been improved. It is now possible to increase the pausing time in 5 minute steps (up to 20 minutes) and to abort the pausing at any time. In addition to that, endless tracking redirect loops will now be avoided.
The new eBlockerOS version is automatically downloaded and installed to all activated eBlockers with an update license.
SSL Exemption Lists
SSL exemption lists are now part of the daily filter updates. This means we can react much faster to resolve SSL related issues with apps. Additionally, we provide a simpler one-click process to add single domains to the SSL exemption list in case of SSL errors, e.g. to access internal sites with self-signed certificates.
The look & feel of the SSL exemption list form has been optimized, and many new and improved SSL exemption lists for operating systems and popular apps have been added.
Improved pause feature: It is now possible to increase the pausing time in 5 minute steps (up to 20 minutes) and to abort the pausing at any time.

The eBlocker icon shows an exclamation mark, when new system messages are available.
