Fixes in 1.0.5

ID Number Description
383083 Previously, when sending an Edge Client command via a URL, the Edge Client prompted the user for confirmation for any change. Now, the user is prompted only when creating a new server configuration on the Edge Client.

386713 Previously, a default IPv6 route was always added when split tunneling was enabled. This route was used only if the client had no IPv6 configuration, but should have been inactive. Now, default IPv6 tunnels are inactive.
387521 Previously, specifying a route of did not correctly force all traffic through the tunnel on iOS devices. Now, specifying such a route does force all traffic through the tunnel on iOS devices.

399938 Previously if the Edge Client started an access policy that had no Logon Page access policy item, a blank page appeared in the Edge Client. Now, if the access policy does not include a Logon Page item, a blank page does not appear in Edge Client.
