Release Notes: Sound redirection has been improved by upgrading to PulseAudio 4.0. The HTML5 client is now faster, works with the Chrome browser on Android, and can send special keys such as Escape, Tab, and Control from touchscreen devices. The remote session will automatically resize when the size of the local browser window changes, the tablet is rotated, etc. Smart card authentication has been added to the OS X Client. Windows 8.1 is now supported. SeamlessRDP now works better on 64-bit systems.

Release Notes: An upgraded X server platform boosts performance and compatibility. It is now possible to use the "GNOME Shell" with ThinLinc. A brand new HTML5 Client has been added, allowing access from mobile devices such as the Apple iPad. The ThinLinc client now supports Kerberos authentication. The X Server now provides the X keyboard extension (XKB). This release features support for publishing a single application. The Windows client is now supported on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

Release Notes: Support for systems with multiple monitors has been greatly enhanced. The ThinLinc session will respect monitor boundaries just like a local desktop would. A 64-bit client is now available for Linux. This makes it easier to install on most modern distributions, and will also give a performance boost. Compatibility with Mac OS X 10.8 has been improved. The installation programs for the Windows client are now signed. The embedded PulseAudio server, which is used for audio redirection, has received a major upgrade. The RDP client now supports Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0.

Release Notes: This release features a brand new installer, which should make the installation a breeze on most distributions. This includes RHEL 6, SLED 11, and Ubuntu 12.04. The server is distributed in the DEB package format in addition to RPM. Compatibility with desktop environments such as Unity 2D, KDE4, and XFCE has been improved. Support for servers and clients older than 2.0.0 has been removed. The Linux smart card authentication has been re-implemented. It is now smaller and twice as fast.

Release Notes: New platforms, including Mandriva Enterprise Server and Unity 2D, are now supported. All server components are available as 64-bit versions. The performance on high latency networks has been improved. Four new translations have been added: Dutch, French, Russian, and Turkish. The OS X client has been translated. The functionality of the Web administration interface has been improved.

Release Notes: New platforms such as Windows 2008 R2 and the latest Linux distributions from Red Hat and Ubuntu are now supported. VirtualBox integration has been added. This advanced VDI solution works well in conjunction with VirtualGL and ThinLinc, and can deliver high performance graphics with OpenGL applications in a thin client environment. This release features a new Web administration GUI. The performance of many RENDER operations has been improved: the "render_bench" test indicates a performance increase of 100%. Additionally, the graphics engine of the client ("vncviewer") has been rewritten.

Release Notes: This is an update to the 3.1.0 version. The performance of the Windows client has been improved, and it is about twice as fast as the previous version. This gives radically improved performance in many cases, such as video playback. A client package for IGEL Universal Desktop terminals is now provided. The smart card support has been enhanced. The client distribution TLCOS now includes basic scanner support.

Release Notes: ThinLinc is now based on the the latest X.Org and TigerVNC versions and includes amazing performance enhancements. Given a reasonably fast server, client, and network, it is now possible to play back motion graphics in full screen mode. ThinLinc works very well in conjunction with the VirtualGL software, which provides hardware-accelerated OpenGL on the server side. The size of the session can be dynamically changed, since support for the Resize and Rotate Extension (RandR) has been added. Support for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) has been added.
