Build: 4.0.4922
Status: Pre-Release (Internal)

This release has grown to be our biggest ever.


  • Web UI template reworked

    • Fully variable width "responsive" design
    • Very friendly to touch devices, but no compromises on mouse based usage either
    • A bit flatter and more modern than before
    • Much more effective use of screen real estate

  • Host page entirely reworked

    • Takes advantage of much more data and functionality available now
    • Added data fields for machine name/domain, logged on user name/domain, idle time, up to 8 custom fields, client version data, ip addresses, system memory total/available, processors type/count
    • Added screen previews with configurable scale to see what the screen looks like outside of the session
    • Added ability to chat with users inside the session from the web UI; can broadcast a chat message to multiple checked sessions
    • Added command line interface from web ui with navigable command history; also can run commands on multiple checked sessions
    • Added "Timeline" that visually renders session history, live; All session connections and events logged including: attempted session joins with user agent and launcher used, commands, notes, chat messages, IPs of each connection, client type/version of each connection, reinstalls, uninstalls, connections, disconnections, durations
    • Added wake-on-lan
    • Better selection of session rows with double-click join

  • Added change password page
  • Moved from XML session files to database

    • Out-of-the-box based on SQLite, but should be able to run on sql server or oracle
    • Allows us to store much more data much more efficiently, both from performance and storage perspectives
    • Should make custom reporting much easier
    • Should make pruning and maintenance much easier

  • Attempt to delete transcoding temp files from temp directory
  • Lots of little under-the-hood tweaks


We're still not feature-complete, so we'll be adding more stuff for a week or so, and we'll be fixing everything up for a month, at least. An alpha release should be available in a couple of weeks. We'll post a video walkthrough soon.

Build: 4.0.5136
Status: Pre-Release (Alpha)


  • Gave logoicon.png same upgrade handling as logo.png
  • Fixed DEB unattended to use the absolute paths of our JAR files because the Path directive in the .desktop file wasn't being honored on session start
  • Took a shot at fixing mono LIKE expression parsing to allow concatenation
  • Fixed mono to correctly send P3P header when redirecting (fixes IE login inside iframe)
  • Fixed extended auditing screen recording to reset session capturing when service call to write content data fails
  • Added parameter to specify how long captures can be before cycling to a new capture file under extended auditing
  • Made our error less dramatic when a session group filter contains too many clauses (mainly caused by OTHEROR)
  • Added a bit of shading and borders on host page
  • Fixed dark theme popout panel text color

Some of the stuff with session recording could have nasty consequences if we messed it up, so upgrade at your own risk (as always but especially now)
