Version 8.0.43 is way less stable than the previous one:
- Need to alway quit the app after the connected host goes to sleep
- Unable to wake the host up and connect in one go

Werkt prima, behalve met gebruik op 2e scherm

Niet alle applicaties kunnen naar een 2e scherm geplaatst worden.
Scherm wordt niet getoond, blokkerig of als (gedeeltelijk) zwart vlak.
Hopelijk snel een aanpassing dat dit weer functioneert

Okay application, missing MFA options

Application works pretty good, but for security reasons we are RDPing with MFA, so on windows devices with in-built TPM, from macOS to a server we now go through a windows VM and use a Yubikey as MFA.

There are no RDP applications for macOS that support MFA….
