Apple on Tuesday released the third version of its Remote Desktop software, adding support for Intel based Macs and 50 new features including faster file copy speeds and the ability to hide a desktop while it is being controlled remotely. Version 3 also integrates with Mac OS X 10.4's Spotlight features for searching across multiple remote desktops.
Other new features in Remote Desktop 3 include a Dashboard widget for monitoring remote systems, task templates for replicating tasks across multiple machines, application usage reports, and 128-bit AES encryption between Remote Desktop and client machines. The new release is available now for $299 USD when managing up to 10 systems. A version for managing unlimited Macs runs $499 USD.
