The Microsoft RDV team posted a new blog announcing a new version of the RDS client for iOS. Version 8.1.6. It contains a number of bug fixes that improve the reliability and stability of the client and fixes several important issues.
“…Remote Resource Improvements - We had a number of users inform us that they were unable to connect to their Remote Resource applications and that they were getting stuck with the “Preparing your Remote Resources” message on the connection center. 8.1.6 fixes an issue where the feed was not fetched properly, so users hitting this message should download the latest version of the app to access their resources. We also included a number of other fixes where users were unable to connect to desktops that were published through resource feeds.
NTLMv2 Support & Channel Binding - In this update, we’ve added support for NTLMv2 for Remote Desktop gateways and channel binding to support gateways using HTTPS. These fixes should help users who are hitting issues connecting through a gateway server.
Gateway Crashes – The updated 8.1.6 client includes a number of fixes for crashes that users were hitting when connecting through Remote Desktop gateways.
Mouse Button Swapping – This update contains a fix where users were not seeing the ‘Swap Mouse Buttons’ take effect on the remote PC. Users who have their mouse buttons swapped on their remote PC should be able to set this correctly now on the iOS app.
Kanji Character Support – This update contains a fix where Japanese Kanji characters were not appearing properly when using a Bluetooth keyboard…”
