Hello everyone,

I am glad to inform you that TightVNC 2.0 Beta 4 is available for download. The files can be downloaded here:


TightVNC 2.0 Beta 4 is another public preview of the upcoming TightVNC 2.0 release. Hopefully, this Beta is the last one before the release.

This Beta version should recover keyboard handling which was seriously damaged in the previous version. Beta 3 was a big step forward with respect to keyboard handling, but it included too many fundamental changes that have broken too many little things. Beta 4 is aimed to fix that.

We've learned a lesson from Beta 3 and have prepared a set of automated tests for both viewer-side and server-side keyboard handling. Now we have much stronger protection against "improvements" that would fix one problem and break ten other things.

Aside of the keyboard-related changes, TightVNC 2.0 Beta 4 fixes a number of issues with saving configuration in the registry and a few other things. In the section What's New below you can find a comprehensive list detailing what exactly has been fixed.

Please download and test our software! We will appreciate your bug reports.

With Best Wishes,
Constantin Kaplinsky,
GlavSoft LLC.
