X2Go Client for Windows (4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build4) released


Dear all,

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

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

  o Windows: Fix missing VcXsrv/zlib1.dll . The impact of this bug was
that VcXsrv would not start if the cwd was changed from the x2goclient
directory. (The start menu and desktop shortcuts do have the
x2goclient directory as the cwd. So they were not affected.) (Fixes: #587)

Users are advised to update from 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build3 to
4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build4 if they are affected by this bug.

For the Windows-specific release notes for this release, see this page:
http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:release-notes-mswin:x2goclient-4.0.2.1

Regards,
Mike DePaulo

Cooperation of X2Go and QVD for NX maintenance

Dear all,

I recently got in contact with Nicolas Arenas Alonso and Nito Martinez  
from the Quindel group (located in Spain) [1].

Those guys bring forth a software product called TheQVD (The Quality  
Virtual Desktop) [2]. The project does similar things that X2Go does.  
In fact, they use NX 3.5 from NoMachine internally like we do in X2Go.  
Already a year ago, I noticed their activity on TheQVD and thought..  
"Ahaaa!?!".

Now, a couple of weeks back we received a patch for libxcomp3 that  
fixes an FTBFS (fails to build from source) for nx-libs-lite against  
Android [3].

Furthermore, I noticed that the developers from TheQVD starting  
pulling in X2Go's version of NX [4] into their developing Git [5].

That opportunity I used to get in contact with the patch provider of  
the Android patch (Nito Martinez).

After having exchanged several mails, we have decided to join forces  
on the maintenance of nx-libs (aka NX redistributed). We (speaking  
with my X2Go release manager hat on) are happy to have found another  
partner who is focussed on pushing forward the NX development (and  
possibly also the rebasing of NX against latest X.Org).

Current common interests are:

   o bring NX to mobile devices

Important information: Wrong version of X2Go Server in Baikal LTS Debian archive

Dear all,

== Summary ==

we got informed by John McMonagle [1] about wrong package versions in  
the Debian archive of X2Go. Unfortunately, I only grasped the severity  
of that bug report a couple of days back.

In February 2014, a development snapshot of x2goserver* packages found  
their way into the Debian-based package archive of X2Go Baikal LTS [2].

This is of course a severe issue and after cross-checking last Monday,  
I reverted those uploads and provided the correct package versions  
(X2Go Server 4.0.0.11). No other area of the package archive was  
affected, only the Baikal LTS packages of X2Go Server for Debian.

== How to downgrade ==

Follow these steps for downgrading the development snapshot  
(4.1.0.0-preview) to the current Baikal LTS release of X2Go Server  
(4.0.0.11).

Open a terminal and run these commands...

   $ apt-get update
   $ apt-cache show x2goserver

   ### you should see two version of package x2goserver
   ### x2goserver 4.1.0.0-0x2go1~<something> (which is the currently  
installed version)
