On Premise Relay Server

Starting with Jump Desktop Connect 6.7.42 you can run on-premise, high availability relay servers. Relay servers allow you to control how Jump Desktop traffic is routed through your infrastructure and isolate traffic to a specific host. All traffic is run through a specific set of UDP ports so you can control exactally what goes in and out and apply proper QoS if needed. You can use on-premise relay servers for better performance and increased security.

To get started, see the On-Premise Relay documentation.



Colour Accuracy and Colour Matching For Fluid

Jump Desktop now tries it's best to accurately reproduce colours. This means that videos and images you see on your local monitor will now be much closer to how they're supposed to look.

Jump does this by doing two colour conversions: It first converts colours to a neutral colour space on the host machine and then does one more conversion to map colours to your local monitor's colour space. The final result is colours looking like much better overall. 

This feature requires Jump Desktop Connect 6.7.42 or later on the remote machine.

Note for users who have downloaded Jump Desktop from the App Store: We have submitted the update to Apple and are awaiting approval.

Displays In Seperate Windows for Fluid

Jump Desktop for Windows now supports running remote displays in separate windows! This lets you breakout your remote displays into their own window locally so that you can utilize multiple screens. 

Each window can be placed any where locally and even maximized. Jump will remember your window placement for each connection. 

To get started, connect to a machine with multiple displays and then click View -> Displays In Separate Windows.


Jump Desktop for Windows 8.4.26

In 8.4.26 we fixed an issue with the Cycle Displays shortcut not working. We also fixed a crash when running on some Intel graphics adapters.  

Here's whats new in 8.4.22:

Jump Desktop for Windows 8.4.22 adds the following improvements:

Live Performance Stats for Fluid

Jump can now show real-time connection statistics for Fluid connections. Connection stats include the average ping time to the machine, packet loss and the type of connection Jump has established to the machine. This is useful info when diagnosing performance problems. 

To turn on live stats click Help -> Show Fluid Connection Stats. After turning this on, an overlay will appear on the bottom right hand corner of all connection windows.


Maximum Bandwidth control for Fluid Connections

Jump Desktop's Fluid protocol automatically monitors available bandwidth and dynamically adjusts bandwidth usage and image quality while you use the connection. By default Jump uses a maximum of 20mbps for Fluid connections. 

There are times when you want to override the maximum 20mbps default. For example, if you know you're on a slow connection, you can turn down the default to 5 or 10mbps. 

How it works: When you lower maximum bandwidth, Jump will automatically lower image quality during complicated screen updates and automatically boost image quality to high when there is left over bandwidth available. This way you get the best of both worlds: lower bandwidth usage while maintaining high image quality. It works seamlessly and without user intervention. Try it out!

You can now set Maximum Bandwidth for each connection. Connect to the computer and then click Remote -> Maximum Bandwidth menu for Fluid connections and select a maximum.

Bandwidth above 20mbps is currently available for Teams Enterprise customers. Warning: Increasing bandwidth above 20mbps will put a strain on your network and may make things worse if your network isn't designed to handle it. Please speak to your administrator before increasing bandwidth above 20mbps.
