rdesktop is an open source client for the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), which is used in a number of Microsoft products including Windows NT Terminal Server, Windows 2000 Server, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server, and Windows 2008 R2 Server. rdesktop currently runs on Linux and other Unix based platforms with the X Window System.
Release Notes: This release add support for server redirection when connecting to a Windows 2012 RDS Farm and fixes issues related to server redirection for Windows 2003/2008. There are also a few other issues solved when connecting to Windows 8/Windows 2012 . The default printer driver "HP LaserJet 8500 PS" used for local printer redirection has been changed to "MS Publisher Imagesetter". This makes printing work out-of-the-box with Windows 2003 and later versions.

Release Notes: This release includes features regarding authentication and security such as Network Level Authentication (NLA) which adds support for SSL/TLSv1 connections and kerberos server authentication. Connection sharing for SeamlessRDP will use the same connection against a terminal server to start additional applications. This was done implementing inter-process communication (IPC) for rdesktop, where a master process is controlled by slave processes. Smart card single-sign-on functionality is available for both plain rdp and CredSSP using a PIN passed as an argument to rdesktop.
Release Notes: This release fixes a few major issues with the 64-bit build with smartcard support, license handling with Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server, and a few minor bugs.

RandR is supported, so the session will be automatically resized if the local screen size changes.
