First of all let me tell you that we are going to stop with these non-sense titles. Yeah!

Starting from the next release, the codename could be named after you or whatever you like, just name it! To get this privilege, you could, for instance, discover why we named this release “Sandwich”, or you could write some code for Remmina. We are thinking to other prizes, so stay tuned and we will let you know.

If you think I’ve finished, you are wrong; before to speak about the release, I still have to announce a couple of other things.

We’ve added Ads on this site, we were obliged because the donations are not enough. Always speaking about money, we added flattr, liberapay and we are working on Patron.

Coming back to the sandwiches, we’ve just released the v1.3.0, this is a big release, with many new features and a ton of fixes.

The most notable ones are:

  • All the message panels (login, certificates, etc) are now integrated in the main connection window.
  • We have introduced the “Use the initial window size” resolution.

The message panels were stealing the focus and causing different kind of issues (i.e. windows re-patenting), mainly, we were not able to calculate the windows size before the connection. As this is now possible, we added a resolution setting that set the remote desktop resolution, equal to the initial Remmina connection window… WOW breath!! Well, have a look at a couple of screenshots, and if you don’t like them, just submit yours, we’ll name the next release after you ;-)
