This changelog is the comprehensive history of Parsec's product changes. Some of the features listed have been deprecated or were changed in later updates. We thought, rather than changing old posts, it would be fun for everyone to see the whole history of the product's development. For a perspective on Parsec's product and our product philosophy, we wrote a blog post in December 2017 about the early history of the Parsec Game Streaming software.

  • [Teams] Improved behavior for App Rule Hierarchy. Now, team computers will maintain their app ruleset when an assigned user puts that computer into client mode. Previously, the team computer's ruleset would be overridden by the assigned user's ruleset, leading to confusing behavior. Admins also have the ability to re-enable user overrides in the admin dashboard, if desired.
