5.0.3, released 8th October 2012

All platforms

NEW: The mouse cursor snaps to a corner of the host computer's desktop if it exits the VNC Viewer window within a certain distance of a corner (configurable via the PointerCornerSnapThreshold parameter), making it easier to trigger hotspots under the latest operating systems (particularly Windows 8 and Mac OS X 10.8).

Improved support for Windows 8.
Under Windows 8, connection notification messages are now displayed on the Start screen as well as in the Desktop app.
Under Windows 8, Desktop Duplication replaces VNC Mirror Driver as the optimal screen capture mechanism in most circumstances.
VNC authentication passwords are now created using the vncpasswd utility, rather than specified using multiple parameters.
FIXED: If connection notifications are disabled, messages are no longer shown when subsequently logging on to an account on the host computer.
FIXED: Multiple and collated copies of documents can now be printed to local printers.
FIXED: VNC Server no longer monitors the host computer’s clipboard so frequently, minimizing clashes with applications such as Excel.
FIXED: VNC Server no longer displays erroneous 10061 error messages when starting up on slow computers.
UNIX and Linux

The VNC Server in Virtual Mode daemon (vncserver-virtuald) now respects the BlacklistThreshold and BlacklistTimeout parameters in order to prevent denial-of-service attacks.
5.0.2, released 21st August 2012


FIXED: VNC Server in Service Mode no longer reports error 10038 (“SetBlocking”) when run in conjunction with certain third party software.
Mac OS X

NEW: Support for 10.8 (Mountain Lion). VNC is a signed (that is, legitimate) application for download from the Internet.
NEW: Support for Mac Book Pro computers with Retina displays.
FIXED: Connections can now be established to a computer whose display is asleep (lower of the two sliders in the System Preferences > Energy Saver pane). Note connections cannot be established if the computer itself is asleep.
