The keyboard problems are still not fixed
The keyboard eventually goes to a weird state when arrows start emitting numbers. It's essentially NumLock that cannot be turned off. It applies not only to the keypad, but also to the corresponding keys outside the keypad. The only solution I found is to disable NumLock using xmodmap, but it only works if the remote is Linux.
Great app - This version has issues.
I’ve been using this app for a very long time, without issue. This partiuclar version seems to be having issues. The remote connections stay open, but it locks up and I have to restart the app. Needs more work...
turns out acknowledging other keyboard layout was rather Windows setting problem….
