It’s time for a quick update with some bug fixes and small feature updates. Here’s what is included in this release:

  • Fixed a bug that prevented typing in Korean.
  • Added support for F1 through to F12, Home, End, PgUp and PgDn keys on hardware keyboards.
  • Resolved a bug that made it difficult to move the mouse cursor to the top of screen in letter-boxed mode on iPadOS devices.
  • Addressed an issue where pressing backspace after space deleted two characters.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the iPadOS mouse cursor to appear on top of the RD client mouse cursor in “Tap to Click” mode.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented connections to some RD Gateway servers (error code 0x30000064).
  • Fixed a bug that caused a mouse cursor to be shown in the in-session switcher UI on iOS devices when using a SwiftPoint mouse.
  • Resized the RD client mouse cursor to be consistent with the current client scale factor.
  • Added a check for network connectivity before launching a workspace resource or PC connection.
  • Hitting the remapped Escape button or CMD+. now cancels out of any credential prompt.
