[Fireside Chat #1] The Story So Far
Hello mRemoteNG users!
I’m a bit overdue for one of these update posts. As mentioned in the last post, I am hoping to provide information to the community about once a month about what we are working on and what we are planning for the future. I’ll be calling these the “fireside chats”.Read more…
Latest update and plans for the future
I figure it’s time I made a post about what has been going on and what I have planned for the future. My intention is to have these sorts of posts somewhat often (once or twice a month at least) to give the community a sense of where the project is and where it is going.

The current code is so huge and complex that it is suicide to try to get anything done without trying to entangle things. This needs to happen, and for sanity’s sake it needs to happen first. The connection/protocol subsystem will be targeted first.
