8.7.15 fixes an issue when opening connections in new tabs. Here's what was new in 8.7.14:
We've worked super-hard on reducing audio latency for Fluid connections. It was already low, but we've managed to cut the latency in half of what it was before. This means you'll have better sync between audio and video while working remotely.
For customers subscribed to Teams Enterprise edition, the quality of audio streaming for Fluid will automatically be increased to a level where the quality of the audio stream is virtually indistinguishable from uncompressed audio. This means higher fidelity audio when connecting to remote machines.
Jump Desktop for Mac now supports a new Observe mode that prevents sending keyboard and mouse input to the remote computer.
Great for when someone else is in the driving seat and you simply want to observe their actions.
To toggle Observe mode, connect to the remote computer and then click Remote -> Observe Only.
Unleash your creativity. Jump Desktop now supports sending pressure, tilt and rotation information from a stylus to the remote computer. No drivers required.
Requires Teams Enterprise subscription and Jump Desktop Connect 6.5.x. This feature is only available for the Mac at the moment.
Jump Desktop 8.7+ now has native M1 support.
Jump Desktop + M1 Chip + Metal = Blazing fast remote desktop.
Jump Desktop lets you add computers to a team so that all members can access and share the computers. This feature raises a problem, i.e., multiple users trying to access the same machine.
Jump Desktop (Mac), now shows you if a remote computer has users connected to it. It also shows the emails of the connected users so that you can identify the users currently accessing it.
This feature is available for Teams Enterprise customers.
We have added helpful, but unobtrusive, indicators in the UI.
"Occupied" computers have a distinctive red icon in the icon mode, hovering over the icon shows the connected users' emails.
The list view has a column for "Connected Users".
You can also take advantage of the "Occupied" and "Unoccupied" filters from the filter bar.
"Current Active Connections" card shows the list of computers to which users are currently connected. A subtle badge, with a red background, displays the number of connected users.
Visit the active computer's page to view the currently connected users details like their IP addresses.
"Occupied" computers have a distinctive red icon in the icon mode, hovering over the icon shows the connected users' emails

Most of the beta features require new Jump Desktop Connect apps on the host machines. To update to the beta, open up Jump Desktop Connect and then click Settings -> Updates -> Beta updates. Then click Check for updates.
You can now configure how long team members can remain signed into Jump Desktop apps. Once the sign in duration elapses, team members will be automatically logged out from their Jump Desktop apps and will have to sign back in to initiate new connections. Automatic log out won't disconnect team members from existing remote desktop sessions but any new sessions will require signing back into their Jump Desktop account.
To enforce sign in duration for your team visit your Team's dashboard and click Security -> in the Sign in Duration section click Set Duration.
This feature is available for Teams Enterprise.
Jump Desktop Connect has a built-in technology that tries its best to create an end to end encrypted connection between machines, even if there is no direct path between the two hosts using indirect networking routes and relays. This feature frees up users from manually opening ports and configuring network settings. However, this also creates problems in locked-down environments where administrators need to control when a user is allowed to connect.
You can now configure Jump Desktop Connect to allow connections only when there is a direct networking path between the devices.
In this mode, Jump will never fallback on relay servers or take indirect networking routes. So for example, if a user tries to connect without VPN enabled from another network, the connection attempt fails because Jump will not be able to find a direct route between the user and the target machine.
Note: In this mode, Administrators must make sure that their firewall rules allow the VPN IP address pool to communicate over UDP with the host machines. Connections will fail otherwise.
