Build: 3.3.4506
Status: Pre-Release (Alpha)

This will be another quick minor release. Originally we weren't going to release 3.3 and just use it internally, as it was just created for changes to support the new Android client, but we've since added several fixes and niceties that deserve release.


  • The new android client (already in the Play Store) is a complete revamp. Our original version almost assumed things like a hard keyboard and a menu button, but most new android devices don't have either of those, so it got kludgy. The new version embraces changes for android 4.0 (ICS/Ice Cream Sandwich) and adds of lot of stuff that users have requested over the years, including:

    • ability to use as a full app rather than a handler for browser urls (though we still just display our web UI for session managing)
    • new keyboard modifiers and buttons to provide near full functionality of pc/mac keyboards
    • a virtual mouse on the screen that provides a more literal usage model of a real pc/mac
    • renders the real mouse cursor on the screen
    • translucent toolbar always on screen providing app/session name and buttons (wow!)
    • more functions to align with our pc/mac client apps (manage credentials, blank screen, block input)
    • much smoother usage overall ... it's pretty fun to play with if nothing else

  • various little improvements to java networking to bring it closer inline with .NET
  • added session permission ViewWithoutConsent, but didn't expose it as actually an addable permission
  • fixed windows .net client to capture the cursor type/location when on logon screen or another secure desktop
  • added preloading of tool strip control panels for .net client to make them show faster when moused over for the first time
  • added dismissing of tool strip control panels when a function is performed that makes them obscure something useful on the screen (such as sending ctrl-alt-del)
  • fixed ntlm proxy authentication when server sends content in 407 http responses
  • fixed proxy pac file resolution on windows 7 .net 4 machines (and likely others but it's difficult to know who's affected due to the wide array of different proxy resolution mechanisms in different versions of windows/.net)
  • ported the VBS in our MSI files to use compiled DLLs ... this should fix what seems to be a considerable percentage of machines that have a messed up windows scripting runtime
  • minor tweaks to .net networking to handle some errors we didn't think were possible
  • removed unicode preamble from qnap.sh file so it wouldn't display an error when installing on old linuxes
  • recompiled our native encoder to target earlier version of glibc so it would work on older linuxes
  • fixed client to not defocus Messages control panel textbox after message sent
  • fixed so "null" isn't displayed as tooltip on IE for host page tool buttons that have text next to icon
  • fixed nasty issue with mono/linux/wcf concurrency that would leave the web app in an unusable state
  • fixed where linux/mono installer would backup the toolbox on upgrade and not restore it properly


As usual, this is an alpha pre-release, so don't use for anything important and backup before installing (especially because of the installer changes noted above).

Build: 3.3.4520
Status: Pre-Release (Alpha)


  • generate a session ID upon installation of unattended clients so we no longer rely on the computername/machineguid combination being unique
  • added SupportSessionExpireSeconds and MeetingSessionExpireSeconds as configuration parameters to work like AccessSessionExpireSeconds already works
  • made docked panels display during full screen mode when mouse is moved to right side of screen
  • added more effective logging to windows event log on client crash
  • fixed .net client crash on optimized release build when .net 2.0 is installed but not 3.0/3.5 (and I supposed possibly other permutations)
  • made os x client periodically "caffeinate" the remote machine to keep display sleep from coming on (we previously just did this upon initial connection)
  • allowed to toggle the visibility of individual items under the host Invite panel
  • made audit time column formattable

  • added support to bind to specific IPs on linux/mono while allowing any host header (before it required the host header to match the IP)
  • added the text "or higher" after the version in the linux installer when prompting to upgrade
  • fixed android auto-sensing stuff to exclude webkit 537+, requiring user to click ok/cancel. before it went to an error page because chromium/webkit/chrome/whatever changed behavior
