Hi everyone,


I'm also happy to announce that the first patch for Remote Boost 2020.0 is also available.


Please check Remote Boost 2020.0.1 on its own ZCentral page for more information and download links:




What's new in Release 2020.0.1
HP Remote Boost 2020.0.1 Sender supports Windows and Linux®. HP Remote
Boost 2020.0.1 Receiver supports Windows, Linux®, and macOS™.


Operating System Notes:

1. RHEL 8.2 and Ubuntu 20.04 are supported with Xorg sessions. Wayland is
not supported and is disabled by Remote Boost installers.


Compatibility Notes:

1. By default, the Remote Boost 2020.0.1 sender will use the most secure
options. This means that connections to RGS 7.4 and earlier clients will
not succeed unless the Remote Boost 2020.0.1 sender EnableLegacySecurity
property or installer option is configured. See the User Guide for details.

Experience improvements:

1. Auto-launch files are now supported on Linux and macOS. See user guide
for details.
2. Borderless mode is now supported on the macOS Receiver. Borderless mode
is a frameless window mode that can span multiple displays (unlike the
full screen mode). This is the default mode when match resolution is
enabled and the Receiver has more than one display. Note that to allow a
window to span more than one display in macOS you need to disable the
“Displays have separate Spaces” setting in the Mission Control preference


Deprecated properties:

1. The Rgreceiver.IsBordersEnabled property has been deprecated. If you used
it in your configuration file you can use the new Rgreceiver.WindowMode
property instead.


Defect fixes:

1. Addressed an issue where the Receiver closes with non-ascii username
2. Addressed cursor jitter issues on Linux and Windows senders
3. The Vmouse driver can now be installed silently
4. Addressed an issue where audio would not play on Ubuntu 20.04 Sender
5. Allow ALSA audio capture at 48K samples/sec. See
/opt/hpremote/rgsender/audio/README.txt for details
6. Addressed an issue where very low level audio can drop out
7. Addressed an issue where the Sender screen(s) didn't blank with Windows
10 20H1
8. Addressed an issue that prevented hardware-accelerated decode on GeForce
cards on Windows
9. Addressed an issue where the port name (if specified) would not be
persisted in the launcher UI sender dropdown dialog
10. Addressed an issue where Linux senders can hang on logout
11. Notarized the MacOS Receiver application
12. Addressed an issue where Hotky N was not minimizing the Receiver window
in Borderless mode.


Known issues:

1. AVC acceleration is not supported on RHEL 8.x or Ubuntu 18.04
2. DPI aware scaling only works for integral scaling values (e.g. 200%,
300%, etc). Non-integral scaling values (e.g. 150%) will scale to the
nearest integral value.
3. DPI aware scaling on Linux is tied to the screen resolution and not the
scale factor set in the desktop manager. For example, a 1920x1200
resolution 24" display will be treated as 100% scaling, and a 3820x2160
resolution 27" display will be treated as 200% scaling.
4. On Windows receivers with multiple monitors using different scale
factors, there is the possibility of visual artifacts when moving the
receiver window between monitors.



Thank you
