Version 7.0:

Automatic Connection Improvements

We've replaced the guts of automatic connections. It's now faster, more reliable and no longer requires a Google account or even access to Google servers. Of-course we've taken the extra effort to make sure you can keep using your existing Google account with Jump Desktop. We've also fixed those pesky Google login problems and added support for Google's 2-factor authentication (bye, bye app specific passwords)!

IMPORTANT: To take advantage of the new features you must update the automatic setup component on your PC / Mac. Please do this as soon as possible as the older automatic setup components will no longer be supported and are replaced by the new "Jump Desktop Connect" app. To upgrade visit this website on the remote PC or Mac: https://jumpdesktop.com/go .

The new "Jump Desktop Connect" app does everything the old automatic setup component did and has these additional features:

* You can now give multiple users access to the same computer. Previously you had to share the same account between all users. It's much simpler now - just add each user's account to "Jump Desktop Connect" on the remote computer. Very useful for tech support or when multiple family members / co-workers need access to the same computer.

* Truly unlimited number of computers per account. Virtually limitless number of computers can now be managed using the same account (previously we were limited to Google's 10 login limit per account).

* Connect from places where Google is blocked: Surprisingly Google is blocked in a lot of places: Schools, offices, all of China. Well you don't need to worry about it anymore, because we don't use Google servers!

* Doesn't require a Google account anymore. You can sign up and login using any old email address.

* Stronger encryption

* Auto updates in the background: The latest and greatest version without needing to manually log in and apply updates - unless of-course you enjoy manually updating Jump on all your computers, in which case you can disable automatic updates.

* And also: Fluid Remote Desktop...

Fluid Remote Desktop

Fluid is a new, high performance way to connect to your machine. With Fluid you'll be able to watch movies, edit photos, design 3-D rocket engines, play first person shooters, and manage your servers remotely. It's free and comes bundled with Jump Desktop for Mac 6.0!

At the moment Fluid is still in beta and only available when connecting "TO" a Windows machine. Mac support is on the way.

Other notable stuff

* iOS 9 support. More updates soon.
* RDP: Windows 10 only: Adds support for Windows 10's automatic DPI scaling. Now you can comfortably run at Retina resolution (2048x1536) and Jump will automatically and beautifully scale up UI elements on the remote computer. To manually control scaling tap the settings icon next to your computer's name in Jump and then edit the 'Display' settings.
* VNC: Adds support for TLS connections
* VNC: Add support for display selection when connecting to Macs.
* Stability and bug fixes
