Oracle Secure Global Desktop 5.0

We just released version 5.0 of Oracle Secure Global Desktop (for those that don't know what it is, formerly known as Tarantella...). It's a great product that I have been using every for a long time now. I have it installed at home on my servers so that I can get access to my home network from anywhere...without vpn.

Anyway, a few nice things that I personally like in the new release :

(1) html5 client support. In particular, at this time the ipad. So now, I can use my ipad to log into SGD and connect to my apps without having to download and install a client. It just works with the built-in Safari browser. We will expand this over time, right now it's ipad only.

(2) the tta rpm will automatically pull in all dependencies on Oracle Linux 6. So all you need to do is download the tta (sgd) rpm from oracle.com and type yum install tta-5.00-907.i386.rpm. When Oracle Linux is configured to connect to ULN or just go to http://public-yum.oracle.com it will grab all the required OS rpms. This makes it super easy to install and get going.

To download the software, go to http://edelivery.oracle.com, go to the Oracle Desktop Virtualization Products product pack and click on Oracle Secure Global Desktop 5.0 Media Pack.

    In future, the most common browsers(Firefox, Google Chrome) are not support Java Applet in Y2018. But we know Tarantella is leverage Java Applet by browser. Do you have any plan or solution to solve browser terminate support Java applet security issue?
