pyRdesktop 1.5.0-6 / rdesktop-cli 1.6.3-maemo2

Since pyRdesktop depends on rdesktop-cli, this post contains information about both. The reason for two separate packages is twofold: one, so that I can push updates for each application separately; two, so that those who just want the CLI version of rdesktop can get that.

pyRdesktop is a new frontend for rdesktop, designed to be optimized to work on the internet tablets. It features all the basic options, some advanced options, and support for multiple remote desktop profiles (in case you have multiple computers/ip addresses). On clicking “connect”, it simply runs rdesktop-cli. While it does not allow full control over what parameters are passed to rdesktop-cli, it gives options for the most popular.

rdesktop-cli is, as the name suggests, the command line rdesktop client. It has some hildonization (which isn’t perfect). The package is intended to be used in conjunction with pyrdesktop.
