The upcoming release of ThinLinc is almost done and will include more than 140 enhancements and fixes. The most prominent changes are:
Managing a ThinLinc cluster from the command line has been made easier in various ways, primarily by a first version of a new tool called
tlctl. All ThinLinc command-line tools have also gotten man pages, and it’s now easier to use the tools via sudo.
Cendio and ThinLinc have refreshed their branding, and as part of that, all of ThinLinc has gotten a graphical update. The change is primarily visual, so users will be able to find most things in the places they are used to.
The EULA has been updated to allow the ThinLinc server to be more easily distributed. This means that it is no longer necessary for third-party vendors to instruct their users to download the ThinLinc server package directly from Cendio’s website.
Ahead of the final release, a beta version is now available for testing. Please give it a try to see what’s changed, and if there are any problems we’ve missed. A final version should be out very soon.
Please note that this pre-release version should not be used on critical systems. The beta version can be downloaded from our website:
You’ll also find the release notes there, detailing all the changes in this release.
