Apple has released Remote Desktop 3.1, a new version of its workstation management software. The new version can be downloaded from the Apple Web site (separate downloads are available for the
software). It is also available through the Software Update control panel.

Specific fixes have been provided for:
remote lights out management of Xserve
scanning computers on the local network
installation of software meta-packages
authentication when using directory services
execution of AppleScript and Automator workflows
compatibility with third party VNC viewers and servers
A number of other changes have been made as well. For a complete list, visit
