Remmina 1.2 will be available on Debian 9 “Stretch”

Hello Remminers! We love that our software is available and updated on different systems, and we have a direct connection with many distribution maintainers. So, we’ve got some news from our friends at Debian, as they’re releasing a brand new version of their wonderful system.

First: Remmina 1.1 won’t be available on the upcoming Debian 9 “Stretch”. That is a sad news for us, but we cannot criticize that decision, because Remmina 1.1 is an old and unsupported version of Remmina.

Closing a door, opening a window: the solid and newest Remmina 1.2 will soon be available on Debian 9 via backports. More details in the coming days.

Stay tuned! 🙂

    • Hi, thanks for asking.

      We really don’t know at the moment.
      The Debian team is working with the Libssh project in order to obtain an official statement of compatibility with openssl 1.1
      As soon as this will be “fixed” we hope that the libssh bug will be closed and someone, in Debian, will take care of Remmina.

      In the meanwhile you’ve two choices, compiling Remmina yourself following our wiki, or using the snap, that actually have 3 annoying issues with ssh, missing icons and it crash with audio sharing.

      • Without Remmina my Linux machine would be only partially useful. Seems like I need to hold of the upgrade from Jessie to Stretch. I’ll try compiling this weekend.

        Thank you for the info.

  • just upgraded to stretch, ran jessie unstable repo iirc for remmina, needed the older ssl but installed without removing any packages or adding anything else. dropped repo after to wait for official support
