What’s New

Version 10.3.8

It's 2020 and time for our first release of the year. 

The key change in this update is the ability to switch between Scancode (CTRL+COMMAND+K) and Unicode (CTRL+COMMAND+U) modes when entering keyboard input. Unicode mode allows extended characters to be typed using the OPTION key on a Mac keyboard. For example, on a US Mac keyboard, OPTION+2 will enter the trademark (™) symbol. You can also enter accented characters in Unicode mode. For example, on a US Mac keyboard, OPTION+E followed by the "A" key will result in "á" being sent to the remote session. 

Other updates in this release include:

• Cleaned up the workspace refresh experience and UI.
• Addressed a smart card redirection issue that caused the remote session to hang at the Winlogon screen with the "Checking Status" message.
• Reduced the time taken to create temporary files used for clipboard-based file copy and paste.
• Temporary files used for clipboard file copy and paste are now deleted on app exit (instead of relying on macOS to clean them up).
• PC bookmark actions are now rendered at the top right corner of thumbnails.
• Made fixes to address issues reported through crash telemetry.

Thanks for all the feedback. If you encounter any errors, you can always contact us via Help > Report an Issue.

Tekst ziet er anders uit

Op aanraden van Microsoft deze update geinstralleerd. Werkt fijn en snel.
Echter: Ik log in op een server waar mijn epd op staat. Het blijkt dat de weergave van de letters door de update erg veranderd is vergeleken met de oude versie 8.
De letterweergave is veel smaller en onduidelijker geworden. Ook het schalen in resolutie werkt niet. Het probleem blijft bestaan.
Ook het bedrijf waar ik inlog heeft het probleem bij Microsoft gemeld alsook andere gebruikers.
Ik hoop dat er snel een update komt want deze ga ik vanwege de onleesbaarheid niet gebruiken.

I use both MacOS and Windows on a daily basis, but my muscle-memory only knows Windows shortcuts. Remapping the control-command keys on my MacBook is great feature, but it's support within RDP is too limited. As an Excel power user, I use shortcuts for so much more than copy-paste! For navigating, selecting, exporting etc. I still have to use the command key, which is very annoying. Adding full support for this option adds 2 stars for me.

This version is an improvement, finally allowing some macOS shortcuts to be translated to Windows terminal server sessions.
