Please note that the new Sauce Connect backend was GA-ed on December 4th, 2018.
We are very excited to announce beta support for a new Sauce Connect backend. The new backend provides better support for testing iOS applications that access servers with self-signed certificates. The new backend contains significant changes that effect all platforms - desktop browsers, virtual and real devices. Users are strongly encouraged to beta test it. Beta testing will ensure that your build and test pipelines are not impacted when we cut over to the new backend on November 15th.
Simply add --vm-version beta to your Sauce Connect command line. Any Sauce Connect client version can be used.
