A recent change in our source code repository looks small and trivial but marks the beginning of a new era for Veyon. We no longer have any platform-specific code in neither the Veyon Core library nor any of the application components. All existing platform-specific code has been refactored into the respective platform plugins for Windows and Linux. This basically means we can add support for more platforms and operating systems such as macOS, Android etc. in the future by only developing an appropriate platform plugin (and preferably also a VNC server integration plugin).
In this blog post I want to introduce the authkeys plugin which will be part of Veyon 4.1. This plugin implements new mechanisms for managing authentication keys and replaces the assistant found in Veyon 4.0 and previous products. The authkeys plugin provides both a graphical configuration page for the Veyon Configurator as well as a command line interface implementation for
veyon-ctl. Both interfaces aim for full feature parity which means you can perform the same tasks via Veyon Configurator as well as the command line.
Hooray, this is the first post in our new blog! It will become the primary source for announcements and updates related to Veyon. Stay tuned for our next post with all information on the next release series (4.1.x).
