TigerVNC for Mac1.11.0

06 November 2020

Platform-neutral implementation of VNC.

What is TigerVNC for Mac

TigerVNC is a high-performance, platform-neutral implementation of VNC (Virtual Network Computing), a client/server application that allows users to launch and interact with graphical applications on remote machines. TigerVNC provides the levels of performance necessary to run 3D and video applications, and it attempts to maintain a common look and feel and re-use components, where possible, across the various platforms that it supports. TigerVNC also provides extensions for advanced authentication methods and TLS encryption.

What's new in TigerVNC

Version 1.11.0:

Lots of changes have been made since the last release, but the highlights are:

  • A security issue has been fixed in how the viewers handle TLS certificate exceptions
  • vncserver has gotten a major redesign to be compatible with modern distributions
  • The native viewer now has touch gestures to handle certain mouse actions (e.g. scroll wheel)
  • Middle mouse button emulation in the native viewer, for devices with only two mouse buttons
  • The Java viewer now supports Java 9+, but also now requires Java 8+
  • Support for alpha cursors in the Java viewer (a feature already supported in the native viewer)
  • The password and username can now be specified via the environment for the native viewer
  • Support for building Xvnc/libvnc.so with Xorg 1.20.7+ and deprecate support for Xorg older than 1.16
  • The official builds have been fixed to work on the upcoming macOS 11
  • The Windows server (WinVNC) is now packaged separately as it is unmaintained and buggy

This works great on my Mac managing a Ubuntu desktop 18.04 running Vino-server on the Linux side. Works like a charm.
