Hello everyone,

I am glad to inform you that TightVNC 2.0 Beta 1 is available for download. This is the first public preview of the upcoming TightVNC 2.0 release. The files can be downloaded here:

This Beta version delivers completely new TightVNC Server for Windows. It was redesigned and reimplemented from scratch. It features new component-based architecture which is perfectly compatible with the latest operating systems, Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Server R2. Older versions of Windows are supported as well – the minimum requirement is Windows 2000.

The final release of TightVNC 2.0 for Windows is scheduled to April, 2010. There will be minimum changes between this Beta version and the final release – ideally, that should be bugfixes only.

Note: Beta versions of TightVNC 2.0 do not include components for Unix/Linux. These components will be worked on once TightVNC 2.0 for Windows goes out from Beta stage.

What's New?

Below is a list of major improvements in TightVNC 2.0 Beta 1:

With Best Wishes,
