What is ScreenHaven?

ScreenHaven is one-to-many desktop screen sharing application. It is designed to be a partner to a telephone conference (a.k.a. TeleKit). It takes periodic images (whole screen shots, screen portions, the area surrounding the mouse, a whiteboard or a camera) and stores them on the HMS server for sharing. These screen shots, along with text comments can be saved as a record of a meeting.

[New] You can now adjust the resolution of the image sent to the server. This may result in a more blurry image but should reduce the image sizes sent to the server when you want the whole screen but fine detail is not important.

[Fix] The Subscribe window should begin downloading the cashed screens immediately rather than waiting 15 seconds.

[Fix] Changing the Group in the Publish window now refreshes the list properly. Previously you had to uncheck then check the Group.
[Fix] Both Publish and Subscribing in ScreenHaven are now threaded. Despite this there will be delays when Publishing a large full screen. You may want to reduce the resolution if the delays are too pronounced or pause and send the screens manually.
