MeshCentral2 - Mouse Sync, Details Tab, Playback Viewer
- Remote desktop mouse synchronization. Thanks to Bryan Roe for this complicated feature, the MeshAgent’s built-in remote desktop server now looks at the currently displayed mouse cursor. When the mouse cursor changes, it sends a message to the viewer that also changes the browser cursor on the HTML canvas. The result is that users have a much better and more responsive experience when performing remote desktop. Previously, the same mouse pointer was always shown in the viewer and users has to guess when, for example, the cursor was in the right position to resize a window. The feature works on Windows, Linux and FreeBSD.
- New device details tab. As MeshCentral collects increasingly more information about devices including SMBIOS and other information, we needed a new tab to display it all. This is the first version of this tab with basic hardware and operating system information currently displayed, but as we move forward, much more data to be shown.
- MeshCommander session playback viewer. As of a few months ago, MeshCentral is capable of recording remote desktop and terminal session including Intel AMT HWKVM sessions even when over a CIRA connection. The recorded sessions end up in “.mcrec” files. Now, MeshCommander has the session player built-in with a new tab. This allows administrators to review and audit support sessions performed using MeshCentral. The viewer includes playback controls, play speed selection and metadata display.
