Virutal Displays

Virtual Displays for Fluid lets you extend your remote session beyond the physical limits of your host's displays. You can now create up to 4 virtual displays during a remote session (see below for limitations). 

Virtual displays support arbitrary resolutions and can match your local display layout perfectly. This is perfect for working with multiple monitors without having to worry about how many monitors are attached to the remote host. Virtual Monitors also support Retina mode for extra clarity! 

To get started: 

Connect to your machine and click Displays -> Virtual Monitor and select the number of virtual displays to use. Once virtual displays are engaged Jump will replace the host's physical monitors with virtual monitors. You can resize virtual monitors by simply resizing your local Jump Desktop windows.

Requirements:

Virtual Monitor support current works when connecting from a Mac to a Windows 10 or macOS 10.14+ machine. A Teams Enterprise subscription is required to enable 2 or more virtual monitors.

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.




View users connected to the remote machines

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.

Jump Desktop macOS

"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.

Dashboard

"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.

In the list of team computers, you can identify the computers to which users are currently connected from the red badge.

Visit the active computer's page to view the currently connected users details like their IP addresses.
