Apple has updated Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) to version 1.0.1.

ARD for Mac OS X is designed for network and workgroup administrators It enables them to access certain features of up to 250 networked Macs.

The update changes the way administrators access applications and items on remote clients, requiring that a user be logged-on to the client computer. Other features also depend on end-users being logged-in, for security purposes. Changes reflecting this have been made to the way administrators can copy applications, files and folders.

The update is available for download from Apple. Users will also find extensive information about using the application.

ARD comes in two versions: the 10-client edition costs £249 and manages up to ten Macs. The unlimited-client edition costs £429 and controls up to 5,000 Macs. Special education prices are available.
