Red Hat, Cendio AB, and TurboVNC maintainers started this fork because RealVNC had focused on their enterprise non-open VNC and no TightVNC update had appeared since 2006. The past few years however, Cendio AB who use it for their product ThinLinc is the main contributor to the project. TigerVNC is fully open-source, with development and discussion done via publicly accessible mailing lists and repositories.
Compared to TightVNC, TigerVNC adds encryption for all supported operating systems (not just Linux), but it removes scaling the remote display into the client window, file transfer, and changing options while connected.
TigerVNC focuses on performance and on remote display functionality.
