Little Snitch 3.5

Objective Development has released Little Snitch 3.5 with a change in how SSH connections are handled on OS X 10.10 Yosemite (automatically converting existing rules to ensure incoming SSH connections work as expected). The network monitoring utility’s menu bar item no longer occupies space when disabled, and the update also improves both handling of via connections and support for iOS Simulator apps (for more details on this change, see this Objective Development blog post). ($34.95 new, free update, 21.1 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
