Jump Desktop is a remote desktop application that lets you securely connect to any computer in the world. Compatible with both RDP and VNC, Jump Desktop is secure, reliable, and very easy to set up.
- On macOS Sierra and later you can now open connections inside tabs. To start using this feature right click a connection and select Connect in New Tab.
- You can also select multiple computers and open them up inside a new tabbed window. Try this if you have tags: Right click a tag on the sidebar and then click Connect In New Tabbed Window.
- Cycle through tabs using the new Control + Tab shortcut.
- You can also configure how Jump opens new tabs for connections: Click Jump Desktop -> Preferences -> Prefer Tabs for connections.
- Jump now has the ability to dynamically adjust the remote resolution when connecting to Windows 8+ or Windows Server 2012 R2+. It means you no longer have to deal with black bars or reconnect when you resize the connection window. Jump will automatically adjust the remote resolution when your window size changes. To use this feature, make sure you are connecting to Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 R2 or later. Then right click your connection’s icon and in Display settings make sure it is set to Match Display.
- We’ve also redesigned the Display settings panel for RDP connections.
- The new Desktop Scale option gives you the ability to fine tune the text size on the remote display. You can even change this setting dynamically while connected to the remote computer: Click Remote -> Displays.
- We’ve re-written Jump’s keyboard mapping feature. It’s more reliable and has gained a few new features:
- You can now completely remap modifier keys. For example you can add a single mapping that remaps the Cmd key to Ctrl on Windows (you can do this with any modifier).
- You can also remap persistent key strokes - for example, you can remap Alt + Tab to Cmd + Tab if you’re connecting to a Mac.
- This release also works better with international keyboards.
Performance and stability improvements for Fluid based connections.
