What’s New

Version 1.70.0

- New: Toggle Tailscale DNS from Siri or the Shortcuts app.
- New: Receive health notifications in the client menu on macOS to inform you about lack of internet connectivity, firewalls blocking Tailscale, misconfiguration issues, and other issues. Health issues that affect connectivity also change the Tailscale icon in the system menubar to show an exclamation mark.
- New: On MacBooks with a notch in the display, a notification window will now appear if the Tailscale icon is hidden behind the notch due to too many menubar items.
- New: The Tailscale client now warns you when the built-in macOS content filter (Screen Time) prevents Tailscale from connecting.
- New: Use the value `auto:any` to automatically select an exit node for the existing `ExitNodeID` system policy. Available for Enterprise plan users only. 
- New: Restrict recommended and automatically selected exit nodes using the new `AllowedSuggestedExitNodes` system policy.
- Changed: The exit node picker no longer presents exit node suggestions if the organization enforces always using the suggested exit node using the `ExitNodeID` system policy.
- Changed: Improved NAT traversal for some uncommon scenarios.
- Changed: Optimized sending firewall rules to clients more efficiently.
- Fixed: Disconnect shortcut no longer connects to the VPN tunnel if executed when Tailscale is disconnected.
- Fixed: Taildrive server no longer starts unnecessarily when no drives are configured.
- Fixed: Increased the reliability of the Install Updates Automatically setting.
- Fixed: Exit node suggestion CLI command now prints the hostname (which you can use with the `tailscale set` command).
- Fixed: Taildrive share paths configured through the CLI resolve relative to where you run the `tailscale` command.

Note: As previously announced, Tailscale v1.70 is the last version to support macOS 10.15 Catalina. macOS 10.15 is no longer supported by Apple and no longer receives security updates. Users still running macOS 10.15 should update to a newer version of macOS to continue receiving security updates and new features.

Super easy to use, great for modern infra management access

Tailscale might be the exception that proves the rule, specifically that ease of use and security are opposite ends of the same axis.

I am continually impressed by how straight forward TS is to setup on infra and get using it. Goodbye bastions, hello zero trust #win

It just works

As others have said, rediculously easy to setup, features being added all the time, works on all the platforms, love it!



It's almost disorienting how smooth and easy this was to set up. You mean networking could have been this easy all along? Breathtaking.
