What's New in Version 4.0.4

4.0.4: Fixes an issue when printing over RDP

This is our best Mac release yet! Here is a quick look at what's new in 4.0.

* Spotlight
You can quickly search and launch computers right from Spotlight. Click the Spotlight icon on the top right hand corner, search for your computer and click the result.

You can search for computers by name, tags, IP address - anything. It's a real time saver. Works great with third party tools like Alfred and QuickSilver! Try it out now!

* Sync and Share Your Computers
Have more than one Mac? You can now sync your computers using iCloud, Dropbox or any cloud service of your choice. The sync feature is coming soon to iOS and Android.

Want to share or back up your connections manually? It's super easy now - click File -> Export and send the archive file to your friends.

* Performance Gains
Jump Desktop is now a native 64-bit app with a completely new rendering engine that takes half the memory and is more responsive and faster at high resolutions.

* Energy Efficiency
We wanted Jump Desktop to be the most energy efficient remote desktop client for the Mac. We ended up rewriting many components of Jump to leverage Mavericks' power saving technology. Jump Desktop 4.0 is now our smartest, greenest release yet.

It means your Macbook batteries will last longer when you're on the road and less heat and fan noise while you work.

* Fullscreen and multiple monitor updates
Users no longer need to turn off 'Displays have separate spaces' option on 10.9 to use multiple screens with their remote computer. Mountain Lion and Lion users can now enjoy using multi-monitor fullscreen mode in a separate space. Everything just works!

Also - checkout the new heads-up display of the computer name when you're in fullscreen mode!

* List view for Computers
Switch to the list if you have many computers to manage. It is more compact than icon view. You can also sort computers by different criteria like name, IP address, OS, protocol type, in ascending or descending order.

* Driverless RDP Printing
We've added a new way to print using RDP: you no longer need to install drivers on the remote system (it's optional now). Any printers connected to your Mac will automatically be forwarded to the remote computer. If you print often and need accelerated performance you can always install our custom drivers.

* More Goodies
Retina icons, responsive scrolling, simpler UI, reordering of tags in the sidebar, computer search improvements and a lot more!

* Bajillion bug fixes
RDP Folder sharing fixes, VNC encoding fixes, keyboard conversion fixes for international characters and much more. For the full list visit http://jumpdesktop.com/new.
