One of the best VPN experience in China

Outline is easy to set up, and operates smoothly in China, one of the most cencored country in the world. I like it especially because
1) its server side is easy to set up;
2) its client side also tunnels DNS queries; and
3) its client has no ads and isn’t intrusive at all — it simply works in the background.

it will be great when the client works on El Capitan

GitHub says 1.1.1 merged/released last week … Is the app store currently digesting the fix? Overall awesome though, esp. with the iOS client out now.

Add Route Rules(PAC) Might be better

It will be better if it can give us a route rule setting option.
