  • Added support for “IdleTimeout” registry key which specifies how many seconds to wait for mouse or keyboard events before closing inactive connections.
  • Implemented experimental support for TightVNC Dispatcher that helps to resolve problems with access to computers behind firewalls and routers.

Things Improved

  • Improved support for new Windows systems such as Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and the corresponding versions of Windows Server.
  • Improved single application sharing mode (e.g. do not pass remote keyboard input to other apps).
  • Improved performance, especially in the multi-monitor systems.
  • Improved reliability of passing clipboard contents between servers and viewers.
