11 10 2006

Cocoa Remote Desktop

Also known as CoRD, is the new hot shit for your MAC:

CoRD is a remote desktop client for Mac OS X ported from the UNIX program rdesktop. It is a Universal Binary, and allows you to connect to multiple servers concurrently. There are many features not yet implemented, but it is usable in it’s current form. Please report any bugs found.

Its that simple.  Here are the features to come:

 Version 0.2 was released October 4, 2006. You can download it here

Current issues

  • Change keyboard handling to use virtual keycodes
  • Screen artifacts after dismissing the start button on windows 2000
  • Cursor is not changed/reset on mouseEntered: and mouseExited:
  • Make connect threaded to not block application
  • Not all drawing calls/blend modes are implemented
  • Lines are antialiased
  • Keymap is not complete
  • Memory is not totally cleaned up on disconnect. Either clean cache or make cache global

Planned 1.0 features

  • Bookmark system
  • Clipboard integration
  • Disk sharing
  • Audio control/forwarding
  • Fullscreen support
  • Change to use a drawn cursor instead of NSCursor
  • Screen captures
  • Username, Password, Domain support, using keychain for password storage

Possible future features

  • Quicksilver plugin
  • Mouse throttling
  • Overview of all connected servers like expose
  • VNC support

For now its still pretty basic but as the author said “Its Still Useable”.  Can’t wait to see how well this does.
