A new set of optimizations for the rendering engine in order to keep improving speed.
Changed to Monospace Font a few boxes where the Proportional Font could lead to wrong judgements about string sizes.
Reviewed, updated and improved the visual of all Remote System General Information boxes.
Redesigned into table format the Protocol Details box under Network Info/Ports Statistics.
Now, Save, SaveAs…, Print This… and similar right-click context menu commands will produce the output as UTF-8, allowing foreign characters to be correctly saved, previewed and printed.
Now, under Sysinfo/General/Processor you can verify Transactional Synchronization Extensions (TSX Extensions) Intel CPU support. Although TSX support has been added from Haswell onwards, many models don’t have it or have it disabled due to errata fixes. TSX makes part of the Advanced Technologies group (Intel CPUs) – its content defines how rich in leading edge technology the CPU is.
Fixed wrong values displayed under Connections and Listening Ports .
Grids for TCP and UDP Statistics now allow column width change.
The Remote Chat Windows aligns on screen center and fixed an issue where first message being dropped.
Remote Chat shows date/time of message.
Significant improvements in keyboard and mouse responsiveness.
Fine tuning of the image processing engine provides noticeable improvements in screen updating responsiveness.
Reduced memory footprint by more than 20%, sometimes up to 50%.
Improved the SIMD-powered memory data move engine introduced in release 12.7.
Antivirus/AntiSpyware/Firewall information has been added to the “SysInfo/Operating System” information box. This is only available for desktop, not server, operating systems.
Last Installed date for Automatic Updates is reported under the “SysInfo/Operating System” information box.
Updated Sysinfo/General/Processors. Number of processor cores, logical processors and cache information was incorrect for the most recent CPU generations.
This release includes the all new 100% SIMD-powered memory data move engine which will accelerate most operations namely screen updates and data transfers.
IPv6 is now supported, i.e, you can connect to addresses like fe80::c09a:55e5:6be1:db6a. New operating systems (Vista and above) support IPv6 out of the box and IPv6 is common in many LANs. Of course, to make an IPV6 connections across the internet, the Internet Provider most support IPv6 and provide you with static or dynamic IPv6 addresses (alternatively, you can use an IPV6 tunnel). Note: Information grids under the “NetworkInfo” tab and several network tools will be updated to encompass this innovation in the upcoming releases.
There is a new setting under “Preferences/Advanced” to “Use IPv6 whenever possible”. By default, it is left unchecked and IPv4 will have priority. Even if not set as the default, you can press the Ctrl key while pressing the Connect button to attempt an IPv6 connection. Note: Within a LAN, IPv6 may not be straightforward when connecting to XP machines by name and sometimes by IP as well.
It was removed a restrictive limitation on the maximum remote host name length. Formerly, long host names were truncated to 16 characters causing the connection to fail.
“Connections Log” now scrolls to the bottom of the box, in order to show the most recent connections.
Fixed: Issues related to sorting by column in various grids, most notably selected item(s) disapearing out of view was a bit frustrating.
Fixed: A timing issue that might cause an exception when a “Request Authorization” was denied.
Fixed: The point where you produce a mouse click on the local viewer may not have the same exact corresponding point on the remote computer. This was clearly noticeable on very slow connections.
Fixed: In Full-Screen mode the mouse wheel was not working.
Fixed: An occasional error in Full-Screen mode, mentioning “cannot focus a disabled or invisible window”.
Further optimizations lead to 10 to 15% speed up in screen updates.
Reduced memory footprint.
Eliminated an (usually) inaccurate message stating that the remote computer was GUI-Less.
Improvements in mouse and keyboard handling routines by replacing deprecated function calls.
When the mouse cursor was temporarily moved outside the program area making it loose focus, on coming back the mouse cursor movement was not transmitted to the remote until a click was done on the viewer area and the clicked point had no correct correspondence on the remote.
License validity for Upgrades is now shown in the Help/About box.
Help file and Manual improvements.
In Full-Screen Mode, UAC freezed the screen updating.
When leaving Full-Screen Mode, the splitter bar under the row of small buttons disappeared.
New image compression engine that provides both faster compression and significant reduction (50% or more) in the remote agent CPU usage. In most cases, under Preferencias, keep Compression Level in the Normal setting, even for connecting across the internet. Light Compression Level might be selected for very high bandwidth conditions. The Strong Level will not improve over the Normal level except under very low bandwidth conditions.
Fix for cases were the remote desktop image becomes garbled due to out of synch conditions.
The remote desktop viewer might sometimes continue black immediately after connection when the Rendering Scale was not set to Fit.
When the Rendering Scale was set to Fit, changing to a different scale did not properly adjust the size and position of the Viewer scrollbar thumb button.
There is also a new command line switch “/f”, that starts AWRC in full screen mode. For example: “C:\Program Files\Remote Commander\awrc.exe” /r=192.168.1.100 /u=Administrator /p=Mypassword /f
Fix for Ports Finder under old Windows 2000.
Adjustments for full compatibility with Windows 10.
