Pass me the soap box then
I think you're quite right with regard to a change in the handshake mechanism. And as you've probably seen this is topical on a few threads.
The only kind of support I'm involved in on a professional basis is generally more application than PC orientated. Although I seed the requirement
for something like the registry facilties described above, that (as a specific example) wouldn't be highest on my 'to do' list for Radmin. What really annoys me is that I've never seen any kind of Radmin technical roadmap. You see lots of good, sensible suggestions on here and occassionally you'll get a nod of 'that will be in at the next release'. But we don't know when
the next release is, what's
in it, and what's planned to be in the release after that. So everyone gets het up because in development terms nothing seems to be being done. I'm sure it is
; it's just not visible enough to the people who pay to use the product.
There are several, really useful but simple
things that would improve usability (like auto-hide toolbar and minimise from full-screen), then other harder but essential things (like the connectivity/handshake mechanism). For me these sorts of things need to come before things like a registry editor which is if you like an "add-on application" to a remote access application. The former are things which are integral to things to the access tool itself. But either way - the users have no idea
what's planned for Radmin.
I think it would be really helpful if these lists were maintained publically on this website and some sort of roadmap produced with intended release dates and also any reasons why certain ideas are rejected. As it is there is just post after post of the same suggestions and the same gripes that nothing is happening.
Give the users some confidence in the evolution
of Radmin, a fundamentally a good product; not
the feeling that it's standing still.
