Build: 5.6.10373
Status: Pre-Release (Internal)


  • wrote native stub for client service so it never times out under boot competition pressure
  • improved key handling on mac to translate better between different keyboard layouts
  • added 'Get Host Pass' function to generate a join-able url for an unauthenticated person to join as host
  • fixed signature process of mac bundle to make it work under osx el capitan where they tighten the verification
  • changed host page '+' buttons to have text and a little popup explanation of the session type
  • added ability to force disconnect of host or meeting guest from host page
  • added banner at top of guests screen indicating their machine is under control and by who (disable-able)
  • added clients sending application-level pings to detect dead connection (interval is configurable, defaults to 1800 seconds)
  • signed with new sha256 cert assigned to 'ScreenConnect Software' (will be backported to 5.5 once issues worked out)
  • split setting of 'always on top' between host and guest to be separate
  • added ability to package multi-file toolbox items into .scapp files (zip format) ... first file alphabetically is executed
  • added permission for remote printing (good way to disable also)
  • added ability to delete commands from commands tab (people had sensitive information in these) along with RemoveCommand permission
  • added last network ip and last version to session when loaded at startup (before it was only kept in memory and calculated once connected)
  • fixed issue when old session files produced an error when querying audit trail
  • added ConnectedParticipantNames as session property (names delimited by comma)
  • made host page filter not be phrase search but rather split so each element would be ORed together
  • made 5.3 the minimum upgrade version (you'll have to upgrade to that first before going to 5.6)
  • put in delay between characters when sending clipboard as text because otherwise windows combines repeating characters
  • lots of refactoring for ios doing capturing when acting as guest
  • added ability for person in meeting to set quality of screen sharing
  • added some logic to try to prevent stuck modifier keys
  • made docked stuff appear in full screen mode when mouse moved to top (and top appears when mouse moved to right)
  • fixed so top bar displays briefly after maximizing first time
  • fixed some brief flashing that occurred when opening the host client
  • fixed audit to parse the time boxes correctly if a different time format was specified
  • removed ellipsis character from commands on host page
  • made so logging in after logging out would not try to return you to the same page you were on
  • stored consented/refused answers by participant name rather than connection id so if there was a disconnection, it wouldn't be wiped

  • changed sound capture to use integrated windows voice capture dsp which provides echo cancellation, auto gain control, and noise suppression. VOIP is a lot more pleasant now (on windows)

  • added USERLOGINNAME, USERDISPLAYNAME, and USERROLES variables to use in session group filters
  • fixed sound capturer to correctly dispose of devices and a few flow control bugs
  • fixed client to not throw exception when closing mainform popped open for a different monitor
  • fixed so 'always on top' menu item is correctly checked/unchecked on start of client
  • added logic to automatically figure out some content types from base64 data so right click "save image as", etc, will default to correct file extension
  • updated guest session starter extension so it won't conflict with connectwise extension
