Microsoft on Tuesday announced the release of Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) version 2.0 beta 2, an updated version of their software that lets you connect to a Windows computer. It’s available for download now.

RDC is handy if you have a need to connect to a Windows PC and work with programs and files on that computer remotely, from your Mac. New features in 2.0 beta 2 include multiple sessions improvement; the ability to manage all connection settings using connection files; Vista Network Level Authentication (NLA), a new authentication method used in Windows Vista; auto-reconnect; and widescreen support.

System requirements call for a G4/500MHz or faster, Mac OS X v10.4.9 or later, 128MB RAM and 13MB hard disk space.

The new beta is set to expire on March 31, 2008.
