Since the release of Remote Desktop Manager 13.5 back in March, we have added several new features, updates, software fixes, and a generous helping of overall awesomeness. While many of these improvements are behind the scenes, you may have noticed the new look, extra buttons and checkboxes. We have also changed the location of some features to improve efficiency and usability. As always, whenever we release a new version, we update our Release Notes Page so that you can see everything that we have added, improved and fixed.

Now, with this being said, let’s face it: how many of you have the time to read every line on a release notes page — ours or anyone else’s?


Trust me, I get it. Reading them can be reminiscent of scrolling through those famous end-user license agreements that we are all “supposed” to read when installing new software. Now, if you want an example of an interesting EULA, check this one out…

In light of this, here at Devolutions, we want to make your life easier and more efficient. That is why Jessica and I (Yann) have created a new video series called “What’s New” in the Devolutions Studio, which will help you stay up-to-date on important new changes. Since there were A LOT of new features to cover, we selected the most relevant ones and organized them by category. Below is a summary of each video along with a handy little player containing our YouTube Playlist.
