Screens now supports the 1Password extension, letting you easily call up the login information you need when you need it, without having to go hunting for it. You can also now lock Screens, either behind your device's passcode or using Touch ID.

You can now connect to a computer as a guest user and control that computer if you it has the free Screens Express utility installed. Also, if you're a registered user on a shared Mac, you can request that the current user shares there display. Sharing has also been improved. You can now send rich text and images from your iOS device clipboard directly to your Mac, and your local and remote clipboards can be synchronized automatically.

There are other, smaller improvements. Screens will now attempt to reconnect automatically if a connection was cut while the app was running in the background. There have also been a number of bug fixes and stability improvements.
