The Ubuntu 11.10 repository contains obsolete version of Remmina, i.e. 0.9.3. The latest one (1.0) has been recently released and can be compiled from the sources.

It has one problem though: it doesn't take into account the "quality" setting chosen in the configuration dialog which results in "pure"-quality (minimal features) RDP sessions.

An alternative would be to stick with FreeRDP client (Remmina's RDP part is based on it) which has also been recently updated to version 1.0.1 as on standalone application. The configuration of the session can be passed to the client, i.e. xfreerdp, via command-line parameters... and the quality of the RDP session is well better than with Remmina.
