Royal TS 4.2 Release

Today we’re glad to announce that another feature packed release of Royal TS (for Windows) is available! Version 4.2 contains lots of cool new features, various improvements across the board, many bugfixes and even a new object type that’ll help you stay organized.

So lets dive right into what’s new:

To-DoSupport for To-Do items

Since we’re already making your life easier by providing you with the tools to manage all your remote connections, we thought it would only be logical to also help you manage your day to day tasks. So starting with this release, you’ll be able to create To-Do items right in Royal TS, add a title and description for them and when the time has come, mark them as completed.
