OpenVPN update breaks R7000 and probably other routers VPN implementation

Affected plateforms: Android
 
 
Spoiler
Change log that fixed the issue:
Changes from 1.1.23 to 1.1.24:
* relax the certificate validation in mbedTLS to allow certificates with broken date format to connect
* re-enabled deprecated and insecure md5 signature algorithm. Support for md5 will be officially DROPPED on Apr 31st 2018
 
 
The previous update broke OpenVPN ability to connect to R7000 VPN.
This last 1.1.24 update of OpenVPN made it again able to connect to R7000 VPN
I am worried about the md5 dropped warning on 31 april 2018.
 
Are we concerned and is Netgear aware of it so that we do not loose OpenVPN for months before it is fixed on routers ?

Thank you

As soon as we have it working before 31 april 2018, it is ok. So that OpenVPN is not broken
