    [ Mike Gabriel ]
    * New upstream release (
      - Disallow server-side users to override X2Go Server commands via
        ~/bin (or similar). (Fixes: #336).
- Avoid unitialised variables on early calls of ONMainWindow::closeEvent()
        or ONMainWindow::closeClient(). (Fixes: #253).
      - Update translation files. Add empty Portuguese translation. Update
        qt_<lang>.qm files from Debian unstable as of today.
- Update German translation file (after session folder feature got added).
      - Makefile.man2html: Test if man2html exists. If not, don't fail.
- Honor exports (client-side shared folders) from broker session profiles.
        Thanks to Ming Song for providing a patch for this (Fixes: 612).
    * debian/control:
      + Add B-D: apache2-dev. On squeeze / lucid builds, this is a superfluous
B-D, but for later Debian/Ubuntu versions, this smoothes the installation
        of the x2goplugin-provide bin:package.
      + Update B-D: apache2-dev | libc6-dev. The apache2-dev package does not
        exist on all Debian/Ubuntu versions.
    * x2goclient.spec:
      + Adapt to building for openSUSE/SLES.
      + openSUSE: Make Qt4 Linguist tools available for Makefile.
      + Upgrade versioned BR for libssh-devel (0.6.3 or patched 0.5.5).
      + The libqt4-linguist split off happened in openSUSE 13.1.
      + Add x2goclient-rpmlintrc file.
+ In openSUSE, it is openldap2-devel, in Fedora/RHEL it is openldap-devel. + In openSUSE, openssh is openssh (not openssh-clients / openssh-server).

    [ Mike DePaulo ]
    * New upstream release (
      - Make X2Go Client aware of the Cinnamon (CINNAMON) desktop environment.
        (Fixes: #571)
      - Make X2Go Client aware of the Trinity (TRINITY) desktop environment.
        (Fixes: #609)
      - Make X2Go Client aware of the Openbox (OPENBOX) window manager.
        (Fixes: #607)
      - Make X2Go Client aware of the IceWM (ICEWM) window manager.
        (Fixes: #608)
- Windows: Fix not being able to add the server to the known_hosts file when
        the username has non-English characters. (Fixes: #566)
(NOTE: This fix only works when the non-English characters are in the same
        language as the Windows "system locale" AKA "Language for non-Unicode
programs." Bug #611 was written for fixing the issue for languages other
        than the system locale.)
        Thanks George Trakatelis ( for submitting part of this fix.
      - Windows: Install VcXsrv "misc" fonts by default, and make all 4 font
        groups optional: misc, 75dpi, 100dpi and others (Fixes: #108)
Note: The fact that all the fonts are included makes the installer about
        30MB larger.
      - Windows: Bundle new version of VcXsrv:
        This new version is based on upstream VcXsrv, but still
        compatible with Windows XP. It also has its bundled OpenSSL updated to
        1.0.1j. It is compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 and contains 1
        X2Go-specific change, winmultiwindow.patch. This patch fixes an issue
        when resizing the NX-proxy window on specific multiple monitor setups.
        (Thanks Oleksandr Shneyder for the patch) (Fixes: #568) (Fixes: #594)
      - Windows: Port from MinGW 4.4 + Qt 4.8.5 to MinGW 4.8.2 + Qt 4.8.6,
        including fix for QTBUG-38706 (Fixes: #474, #603)
- 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)
      - Windows: Make the desktop shortcut optional during install,
        but still the default.
      - Windows: Upgrade libssh from 0.5.5 to 0.6.3. This fixes connecting to
hpn-enabled SSH servers. The Pageant support patch from the KDE Windows
        project was ported to 0.6.3 by myself and Mike Frederick.
        (Gmail: psududemike) (Fixes: #590)
      - Windows: Win32 OpenSSL updated from 1.0.1h to 1.0.1j, which fixes the
        CVEs announced on 2014-08-06 & 2014-10-15.
- Windows: Replace Cygwin Bash (sh.exe) with Cygwin Dash (ash.exe renamed
        to sh.exe). This also means fewer Cygwin .DLLs are bundled.
        (Fixes: #636)
      - Windows: cygwin packages (excluding OpenSSH, which is at the patched
version of 6.6.1p1-3-x2go1) updated from latest versions as of 2014-06-09 to latest versions as of 2014-10-18. This includes openssl 1.0.1j-1, which
        fixes the CVEs announced on 2014-08-06 & 2014-10.15.
(Cygwin openssl was also individually updated in,
        but only to 1.0.1i-1.)
- Windows: Build nxproxy.exe with Cygwin's libpng 1.5.x rather than 1.2.x.
        (This may improve performance when PNG compression is selected.)
- Windows: Build cygwin openssh without krb5 or tcp_wrappers support because
        X2Go Client for Windows does not use either feature.
        (On Windows, Kerberos 5 (GSSAPI) support is provided by PuTTY.)
      - Windows: Fix text not being rendered properly at end of NSIS installer
        (Fixes: #597)
