Improved reliability when handling responses delivered via TCP from very slow DNS servers.
Fixed an issue introduced in the previous nightly build where a fresh install of Little Snitch result in a broken installation. The installation seemed to succeed, but after restarting the computer, Little Snitch was not functional.

Little Snitch 4.0.6 nightly (5119)
Made Silent Mode actually silent again. Starting in Little Snitch 4.0.5, processes with certain code signature issues caused Connection Alerts to appear even during Silent Mode. These appeared in more situations than we originally intended, though, so we redesigned how this works. Now, no Connection Alerts will appear during Silent Mode (as it was before Little Snitch 4.0.5), but you may see a notification in the top-right corner of the screen about connections being denied due to code signature issues.
When changing the active profile using Little Snitch’s menu bar item while a Connection Alert was shown, the active profile’s name was not updated in the Connection Alert’s profile picker. This works as expected now. Note that the correct profile was used when creating a rule – just the name in the profile picker was not updated.
Fixed an issue that could cause Connection Alerts to appear that would show no host or domain names, but IP addresses. This could sometimes happen relatively early after starting the computer for a very small number of users.
Internet Access Policy
Little Snitch is now smarter in figuring out what information in your app’s IAP is relevant for a particular connection. This results in more concise and more relevant information being shown to the user. This new behavior is documented here.
You can now specify that a connection description should match if and only if the user selects a connection for a whole domain or “any connection”. You can find the documentation for this here.
Links in Markdown syntax now render correctly and show the linked URL as their tooltip.
