   [ Mike Gabriel ]
   * New upstream release (
     - Fix FTBFS on arm64 (and others) architecture. (Fixes: #498).
     - Only show session name in notification bubbles with debugging
       enabled. (Fixes: #364).
     - New command line option (--keep-trayicon). With that options set,
       we force X2Go client to only use the default "accelerated X" as
       system tray icon (and prohibit usage of the session's icon as
       tray icon). (Fixes: #365).
     - Provide more meaningful messages on SSH errors (host pub key not
       found, export pub key not found, authorized_keys file not found).
       For SSHd startup failures provide different messages on Windows
       and non-Windows machines. (Fixes: #235).
       FIXME: add detection code to report SSH daemon startup failures.
     - Add new cmdline option --hide-foldersharing. If used, all GUI
       elements related to exporting client-side folders to X2Go sessions
       get hidden. (Fixes: #514).
     - Update COPYING file (to update FSF address).
   * debian/control:
     + Add dbg:package x2goplugin-dbg.

       (Fixes: #502).
   [ Oleksandr Shneyder ]
   * New upstream release (
     - Hide GSSAPI options on direct RDP connections. (Fixes: #478).
     - Search X-Server in /Applications/Utilities/ on Mac.
     - Wrong cmd line option throw error dialog if running not from terminal.
- Add command line option "close-disconnect", which make client close after
       session is disconnected.
     - Don't start pulse on Windows, until we really have to start a session
       that requires pulse support.
     - Check if sound is activated before starting pulse.
     - Fix starting sshd on Win XP. (Fixes: #421).
     - Fix "fullscreen" mode on Windows 7 with multiple monitors.
   [ Mike DePaulo ]
   * New upstream release (
     - Windows: Prevent high PulseAudio CPU usage on Windows XP by lowering
       PulseAudio's CPU priority from "high" to "normal" on XP specifically.

     - Windows: Enable PulseAudio log when --debug is passed.
     - Windows: Fix compatibility with current PulseAudio master branch
- Windows: Reduce size of NSIS installer by switching to lzma solid compression - Windows: cygwin packages (inluding patched OpenSSH 6.6.1p1-3) updated from latest versions as of 2014-04-08 to latest versions as of 2014-06-09.

       (Cygwin openssl was also individually updated to 1.0.1h-1 in This also includes migrating from libjpeg to
       libjpeg-turbo, which reduces CPU usage of nxproxy.)
     - Windows: Download and compile nx-libs-lite from the release tarball,
       rather than from git, so that the patches are actually applied
     - Windows: nx-libs-lite updated from to
       (linked against aforementioned cygwin package versions)
     - Windows: Win32 OpenSSL updated from 1.0.1g to 1.0.1h, which fixes the 6
