Build: 3.4.4716
Status: Pre-Release (Alpha)

This will be another quick minor release.


  • The new iOS client was revamped like the android client: http://forum.screenconnect.com/...ect-3-3-Release-Log.aspx
  • Added phonetic alphabet pronunciation to sessions with codes
  • Added unattended installer for linux (DEB file)
  • Fixed a race condition or two in the Relay service; fixes a lot of weird manifestations of bad stuff
  • Now convert dates to local time for display in the session log
  • Fix Windows keyboard key to work better with using Windows+R and other combinations (we broke it in 3.3 i think)
  • Change favicons to pull from ApplicationIcon16 and ApplicationIcon32
  • Made slow page loading look better by flipping visibility of content after our startup script has run ... makes things look better for mobile
  • Removed webstart icons that were hanging around in Images but weren't used
  • Changed LDAP security provider to accept "partial" results from active directory that you get when you search an entire DC
  • Made linux installer check that it's running under bash so it won't give weird errors when using bash stuff in other shells
  • Changed top right host page search box to input type=search so you'll get nice X and other things browser vendors may add for search box
  • Made mobile client long press menu selection set the default single tap action
  • Made android client use default zoom controls in browser
  • Added new android client support for new android intent syntax so it will automatically launch or send to play store correctly. webkit broke our old implementation about two months ago
  • Fixed a status check where we didn't support ipv6 correctly (we do support ipv6)
  • Fixed windows firewall check to be a bit more liberal in determining pass/fail


This release is complete aside from testing and anything that may arise before we can get 4.0 out. Work on 4.0 is in progress. We will be moving from our xml store to a sqlite database, and keeping track of a lot more data in the process.

Oh, and as usual, be careful about installing alpha releases. Build is here:

Build: 3.4.4747
Status: Pre-Release (Beta)


  • Fixed memory leak in linux/mono due to connections not being let go once they were closed
  • Fixed so relay and web server didn't keep reopening connections if they received non-fatal errors from session manager
  • Fixed trace level filtering in mono
  • Added more tracing to parts of the Relay and Session Manager services


We've been working on linux/mono memory and resultant cpu usage issues.

Build: 3.4.4756
Status: Pre-Release (Beta)


  • Handled windows service stopping on machine shutdown so that we perform our usual shutdown routine and terminate the TCP connection gracefully. This was being skipped before. The result was especially bad on linux servers because linux waits 15 minutes to terminate connections with unacknowledged data ... Windows servers will do it in under 60 seconds with our keep alives. Still working on getting TCP_USER_TIMEOUT to work on linux.
  • Fixed linux unattended post-install script
  • Submitted ios app with these fixes:

    • now handling portrait vs landscape much better ... we were previously using old ios sdk 5 stuff, and ios 6 wasn't having it
    • better handling of urls to assume http:// if not specified
    • better handling of urls to not append "Host" onto the url if any path is specified


Lots of fixes today!

Build: 3.4.4802
Status: Pre-Release (Beta)


  • Fixed mac bundle zip file generation that was broken in 3.4
  • Added more filtering of data before handshake is completed to prevent unintended messages from altering behavior (eg rebooting)
  • Changed dependency for java from java-runtime to java5-runtime for linux deb installer
  • Changed codebase="" attribute to use WebServerAddressableUri (if specified) so we'll work when reverse proxy changes up the URL
  • Made chat messages panel autoscroll better, as before it didn't scroll if there was text selected, and it didn't highlight selected text if the rigth control wasn't in focus
  • altered mono installer to use a temp file in /tmp rather than virtual file descriptors, allowing install where the right symlinks don't exist for virtual file descriptors

Status: Pre-Release (Release Candidate)


  • Fixed screen capturing under Windows 8.1
  • Allowed multiple OTP yubikey keys to be specified by separating the keys with a pipe (|)

  • Fixed android client to be more lenient on how the url is specified
  • Fixed tray icon to be visible under linux unattended
