Current version as of 12-02-2009 is 2.0.1. Updates for this application are released very slowly, hopefully we get one soon.

new version : 2.0.1 : 11 august 2009

I was glad to see Microsoft released a version 2.0 of this application that was a Universal Binary, it was a big improvement over the older PPC only version, but still felt a little less thought-through then other application.

After the beta timed out a nagging message would pop-up everytime you start the application. When you do this 10 - 15 times a day it's very annoying and Microsoft didn't have a new version ready nor did they indicate they would anytime soon.

I ended up trying CoRD again. I had tried it in the past and found it worse then RDC 1.03, but now, wow, what an improvement! It seems to have some problems with the clipboard between the Mac and PC, but multiple sessions and all in one window instead of separate windows, how nice.

I am no longer using this application, I've un-installed it and totally switched over to CoRD.

Works well enough, but in a typical bone-headed microsoft move you aren't able to save your preferences, so if, like me, you use preferences that aren't default, you have to change them each time you run the app - starting to get on my nerves

Did you notice version 2.0 is around?

Just a few issues, mostly small ones.

On the Mac I use Appfresh to look for the most current programs, howerver, this program fails. The Version in the "get info" reports an older program.

Please correctr.

Also the link in the app to provide feedback is broken

This is a huge improvement over version 1.0.
Biggest improvements are seamless mouse movements, and the ability to have multiple connections at the same time (with proper support for default preferences).

No longer using it, switched over to Cord, which is quite an improvement to Microsofts Client.

Personally, I like this app. But there are alternatives now...I'm giving CoRD a try.
