Microsoft promised us some goodies
this week, and they just delivered on that promise. The long awaited (at least by me) Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0 (Beta)
is now available for download. This is a beta, but in my limited testing it is much, much faster (as one might expect). New in this Beta, which expires on March 31, 2008 are:
- Universal Binary (hurrah!)
- Works with Vista, and used the new Remote Desktop protocol
- Multiple session support (this is a big deal, though I can't actually figure out how to connect to more than one machine at a time)
- Better printer support, better UI
Overall, this looks to be a solid update to Microsoft's free Windows Remote Desktop Mac client.
