Improved user experience while starting ODT on macOS Catalina
Before Fix Pack 2, starting from macOS Catalina (10.15), to use the ODT and to start a remote session, the user had to manually change the execution permission of the downloaded files by executing some OS level commands. With Fix Pack 2, Remote control provides a new type of ODT package for macOS. When enabled, this package allows the user to temporarily install the ODT and execute the session without manually changing the execution permission.
