Jump Desktop for iOS 9.6.8

Jump Desktop for iOS 9.6.8 has the following changes:

  • We've reverted back to the old Jump Desktop icon. Thank you everyone for the feedback! We're going back to the drawing board.
  • In the last update we added the ability to lock the physical mouse cursor. In this update we've added support for customizing pointer acceleration and speed when the mouse cursor is locked. Adjust these settings in: Settings -> Mouse & Gestures -> Physical Mouse.
  • Physical keyboard fixes
  • Stability

In iOS 9.6.7 we added iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 compatibility. Also:

  • We've updated to the new Jump Desktop icon. Let us know if you like it.
  • We've added a new gaming gesture profile for Fluid! You can now control 3D first person games and 3D graphics applications by switching gesture profiles: Connect to a machine using Fluid and then tap the three dots at the top -> Settings icon -> Gesture Profiles -> Trackpad (Gaming) profile. This works with a physical mouse too!
  • New Mouse Pointer Lock for iPadOS 14+ when using a physical mouse: This new feature makes it easier to use a physical mouse. It lets you lock the mouse pointer so that it always remains inside the remote screen. This way you don't have to worry about accidentally invoking the home screen bar or clicking on iPad's native UI buttons. To start using this feature open up Jump Desktop -> Settings -> Mouse and Gestures -> Lock Mouse Pointer -> ON. Quickly toggle this feature from the physical keyboard using the following shortcut: Cmd + Shift + P.
  • Up to 2X Performance improvements for Fluid on newer iOS devices.
  • Lots of bug fixes and stability work.


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.

Jump Desktop For Mac 8.8.16

In this release we've added the following features:

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.
