Update OpenVPN Client Export with OpenVPN 2.5.0 installer
OpenVPN 2.5.0 is out and needs added to the client export package.
- OpenVPN 2.5.0 has separate 64-bit and 32-bit MSI installers, old 2.4.x installer did both
- Installer changed to MSI
- Remove OpenVPN 2.3 installers and 2.3 "legacy" options
- ncp-ciphers has been renamed to data-ciphers for 2.5.0, but old name still needed on 2.4.x

Committed to devel (pfSense 2.5.0) for further testing
The installer works but there is a slight quirk in that the GUI launches when the OpenVPN install finishes, before the postinstall can drop in the config. If the client didn't have any configuration files before starting the process, the OpenVPN GUI throws an error stating that there is no configuration, just as the postinstall runs and does its thing. I didn't see a way to suppress the automatic start of the OpenVPN GUI yet. It's minor though, just an annoyance.

Tested version 1.5_1 on 2.4.5-p1 64-bit installer worked and installed config properly but did present warning during initial OpenVPN installer due to no profiles being present. After clicking through warning, the installer restored from being minimized and upon clicking finish, the profile had been added correctly.
the above warning Niccolo is seeing appears to be from OpenVPN-Connect, not the typical OpenVPN community GUI install
