    Release Notes: Improved support for non-X11 touchscreen devices, such as the Qtmoko Neo Freerunner, is provided. Interaction with the TSLIB touchscreen library is supported. The non-X11 input injection methods on Linux are extended to potentially handle more devices. The Mac OS X native server now uses OpenGL for the screen pixel capture which is usually much faster than the older method. Unix sockets and raw stdio (i.e. non-TCP/socket) connections are enabled. The SSL enabled Java VNC Viewer now handles mouse wheel events.

      Release Notes: A compile time error when using --with-system-libvncserver to point to LibVNCServer 0.9.7 was fixed. A bug from the forced use of Xdefs.h is worked around. The kdm display manager is now detected when trying not to get killed by the display manager. One can now specify the maximum number of displays that can be created in -create mode via X11VNC_CREATE_MAX_DISPLAYS.

        Release Notes: The SSL enabled Java VNC Viewer Makefile has been modified so that the jar files that are built are compatible back to Java 1.4. In -create/-unixpw mode, the environment variable FD_USERPREFS may be set to a filename in the user's home directory that includes default username:options values (so the options do not need to be typed every time at the login prompt). The source tree is synchronized with the most recent libvncclient. The correct header files are now used when an external LibVNCServer is used.

          Release Notes: IPv6 is now supported for all usage modes. A demo CGI script, "desktop.cgi", shows how to create an SSL-encrypted, multi-user x11vnc Web login desktop service. The included SSL-enabled Java VNC viewer applet supports Chained SSL Certificates. A Java Viewer applet parameter allows one to specify a VNC server's certificate. The Xdummy utility no longer requires being run as root.

            Release Notes: A system greeter option enables jumping directly to the GDM/KDM login panel for one's initial unixpw login. x11vnc now avoids GDM's attempts to kill it just after the user logs in. A simple application sharing mode showing multiple windows is enabled via -appshare. XAUTHORITY filename guessing is enabled via -findauth and '-auth guess'. The -stunnel mode now supports most of the -ssl features. Workarounds are enabled for bugs in Xorg and GNOME that cause the Xorg server to crash. x11vnc keeps up with viewer update requests more aggressively. Fonts may be changed for the GUI.

              Release Notes: Web browser viewing with the SSL Java Viewer applet via HTTPS (single port mode) has been made more reliable. Web proxy support for downloading the applet has also been improved. Proxy authentication is now supported. The stability of the "-threads" mode is greatly improved and may provide a performance enhancement for certain usage scenarios (with either a single client or multiple clients). Workarounds for recent Xorg server and GNOME bugs are implemented.

                Release Notes: Support is provided for building with VirtualGL's TurboVNC encoding and TightVNC modifications. TurboVNC is an enhanced TightVNC implementation for fast LAN high frame rate usage. Smooth opaque window movement now works correctly in client-side caching mode (-ncache_cr option.) In addition to exporting Linux Virtual Terminals via the full framebuffer device, /dev/fb, one can now export the text-only view provided by /dev/vcsa. This lets the terminal be accessible even if it is not the currently active one. Raw framebuffers with less than 8 bits per pixel are supported.

                  Release Notes: x11vnc's SSL encryption is extended to support the VeNCrypt and TLS VNC security types. An increasing number of viewers support the former. Anonymous Diffie-Hellman key exchange support is provided, and Certificate Revocation Lists are implemented. The Java viewer applet is downloadable via the VNC port as well as the HTTP port. If x11vnc is not built with the Avahi Zeroconf library, an external helper program is used instead. A launcher for naive users is provided in x11vnc.desktop. The solid background color option works on the Mac OS X console.

                    Release Notes: Symmetric key encryption using the RC4, AES, Blowfish, and 3DES ciphers is supported via the '-enc cipher:keyfile' option. Server-side scaling can now have different scale factors along the horizontal and vertical axes. The -chatwindow option allows a chat window to appear on the X console during UltraVNC chats. The non-SSL Java viewer applet has been replaced with an improved implementation.

                      Release Notes: Reverse VNC connections now work in the X session -find and -create modes. Reverse VNC connections (both normal and using SSL) can use a Web proxy, a SOCKS proxy, the UltraVNC repeater proxy, an SSH connection, or even a CGI URL to make the outgoing connection by using the -proxy option. Support for the ZYWRLE encoding is added: it is the RealVNC ZRLE encoding extended to do motion video and photo regions more efficiently by way of a Wavelet based transformation. Indexed colormaps with depths other than 8 now work properly. The Java Viewer source code is now included in the release.
