TeamViewer, a piece of software that enables users to connect and control remote computers with great ease, has reached version 9.0.30203 and is ready for download.

TeamViewer is a very handy piece of software, and the Linux version features almost the same options and capabilities as the Windows release, but it's still not there yet. The problem is that it uses a Wine wrapper to get the job done. It's not an intrusive solution, but it won't allow for a true evolution of the software.

According to the developers, users can now copy images, screenshots, and formatted text from one computer to another (via the clipboard), opening multiple remote sessions in tabs has been implemented, a Wake-on-LAN feature has been added, two-factor authentication support is available, and various improvements and fixes have been introduced.

Keep in mind that, for technical and licensing reasons, a remote control connection in the other direction, i.e., from TeamViewer 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 to TeamViewer 9, is not possible. Meetings with version 9 are also accessible for participants with versions 7 and 8, however, vice versa it is not possible due to the aforementioned reasons.

A complete list of changes and new features is available in the official announcement. You can download TeamViewer 9.0.30203 right now from Softpedia.
