What's New?

NoMachine 5 builds on the innovative features and redesign that we introduced in version 4. The latest release comes with a fresh new look, under-the-hood enhancements and many other refinements further elevating the user experience on all platforms. Here's an overview of some of the features that you'll love in NoMachine 5.0 for Windows, OS X, and Linux.
Native GUI
The NoMachine interface has been given a native look-and-feel to make you feel at home when using it on your chosen platform. For those who prefer the previous 'Dark' theme, it's still available as optional in the NoMachine Player Preferences.
Support for international languages has been added with menus and dialogs now available in French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, Portuguese and German. Further languages will be coming in later versions.
Improved multi-monitor support
When connecting to a remote machine with multi-monitors attached, it's possible to choose which monitor to show at any time via the Menu. Users of applications scattered across multiple monitors can now switch between the available displays or merge all displays on a single screen. The handy keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-I additionally identifies multi-displays by number, particularly useful for remote set-ups with numerous monitors.
Maximum freedom in display resolution
Dynamically changing the resolution of your remote desktop to fit your specific requirements is now much easier thanks to the introduction of a 'Resolution' slider in the refined 'Display settings' menu. In remote desktop sessions to multi-monitor set-ups, you can even set a custom resolution ad hoc per display. What's more, holding the 'Control' key whilst dragging the corner of the window will automatically scale the contents to fit the window preserving the aspect ratio of the remote display.
Screen blanking
Users on all platforms can now protect their privacy and hide screen content by blanking the host display. Checking the appropriate box in Security Preferences will also stop unwanted user input by locking input devices during a remote desktop session. This is particularly useful for unattended remote computers to prevent others from entering data or viewing the monitor while you are remotely accessing it.
Full support for headless Linux servers
NoMachine can now easily be installed on headless Linux servers out-of-the-box. Connecting to a headless Linux server, such as a Linux desktop running in a datacenter or in a cloud provider environment, no longer requires manual configuration.
Kerberos ticket-based authentication via NX protocol
Support for Kerberos ticket-based authentication is extended also to connections via the NX protocol. Enterprise users can select from SSH, System Login and NX Login in the connection GUI and start the connection without having to enter credentials.
Unmatched performance
Sophisticated algorithms refine the screen to recreate crisp original colors without impacting on performance. NoMachine can take advantage of the graphics card capabilities server-side, effectively reducing CPU consumption, meaning you get a more fluid experience when remotely accessing multi-media content and high-performance apps. To start off with we've added support for Nvidia cards with Maxwell architecture, and others, such as Intel's QuickSync, are planned in successive releases.
Optimized remote node management
Once connected to a remote server, NoMachine administrators can add and remove nodes directly via the Player GUI rather than executing operations via the command line.
Extended support for remote X-Window hosts
Any remote Unix server supporting the X-Windows protocol, including Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, BSD and Linux, is treated as a NoMachine node and added to the cluster network just by using the administration GUI.
