Hello everyone,

I am glad to inform you that TightVNC 2.0 Beta 2 is available for download. The files can be downloaded here:

TightVNC 2.0 will deliver 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. More information on new TightVNC Server can be found in the TightVNC 2.0 Beta 1 announcement.

TightVNC 2.0 Beta 2 is the second public preview of the upcoming TightVNC 2.0 release. As compared to the previous Beta version, it features improved installer, new command-line options available in TightVNC Server, and adds tons of minor enhancements and bugfixes. For more details, see the list of changes below.

I would like to thank all the people worldwide who spent their time on testing TightVNC 2.0 Beta 1 and submitting bug reports, and everyone who made donations, ordered our services or otherwise helped the TightVNC project. Thank you!

With Best Wishes,
Constantin Kaplinsky,
