X2Go Client for Windows (4.0.3.1-20150119) released


Dear all,

This is to announce a new Windows-specific release of the X2Go
component ,,x2goclient''

Note that the 1st release of X2Go Client 4.0.3.1 for Windows
was 4.0.3.1-20141214. The changes are relative to that release.

The changes in this release of ,,x2goclient'' are:

  o Windows: Win32 OpenSSL updated from 1.0.1j to 1.0.1L, which
    fixes the CVEs announced on 2015-01-08.
  o Windows: Cygwin OpenSSL updated from 1.0.1j-1 to 1.0.1k-1, which
    fixes the CVEs announced on 2015-01-08.
  o Windows: Bundle new version of VcXsrv: 1.15.2.2-xp+vc2013+x2go1.
    The differences from 1.15.2.1-xp+vc2013+x2go1 are that its bundled
    OpenSSL has been updated to 1.0.1k, and that xorg-server
    CVE-2014-8091..8103 have been fixed.
  o Windows: Update libssh from 0.6.3 to 0.6.4 (while maintaining
    Pageant support). This fixes CVE-2014-8132, which shouldn't
    affect x2goclient because x2goclient uses the SSH client
    functionality, not the SSH server functionality.
    0.6.4 also added 4 features related to ECDSA keys.

As with most vulnerabilities in 3rd party software, the X2Go project
has not done an analysis of whether X2Go Client was actually affected
by these vulnerabilities (except for libssh CVE-2014-8132.) However,
as a precaution, we are releasing this updated build of X2Go Client
for Windows. Unless an analysis is performed for each vulnerability,

Re: [X2Go-Dev] Shifting my focus in X2Go


Dear Mike#1,

we really thank you for your contributions, ideas and your help in the
last 4 years. Thank you for taking the lead and assuming command when
and where leadership was needed especially when the project was
lacking it.

Our Project is of course more than just the sum of all parts, but first
and foremost, it *is* the sum of its parts. And you have been a
significant part from the very moment you joined.

We are obviously saddened by your decision to retire from most of the
key positions you held. At least it did not come as a surprise to us,
and we've had a chance to prepare.

Also, we are happy about your decision that you will remain active in
the project, so we will have a chance to tap into your knowledge and
experience, whenever the need should arise.

Thank you for contributing your projects and of course thank you for
lending us your communication skills! It was a milestone for X2Go to
get X2Goclient inside Debian! Pyhoca is offering a second way of
usability and now people have a choice about the client. There are so
many tasks we should be thankful of (jenkins, nightlies,
git-administration, to be continued -> I believe you won't stop) and
we really are!

It would be a great honor for us to have you as host on our Gathering
2014 in Essen, please visit us 2015 in Treuchtlingen!
