NoMachine version 5.0.58 now available

Luxembourg, January 4th, 2016

NoMachine makes available today a software update of its popular remote access software solving some issues affecting the previous release, and also offering improvements to the mobile user experience when accessing the desktop via the browser.

A new toolbar places in-session functionality at the fingertips of Android tablet and iPad users when connecting to the remote desktop by means of brower-based access, a feature available in NoMachine Cloud Server. In addition, the new version, 5.0.58, provides the following fixes and implementations:
