   [ Mike Gabriel ]
   * New upstream version (
     - Use File::Which to detect if sshfs command is available
       before trying to mount a client-side folder.
     - Be a bit more tolerant when trying to detect if a
       desktop icon is to be removed (using regexp, not
     - Xsession script: Prevent bash failures when sourcing external bash
       scripts beyond our scope. (Fixes: #632, #675).
     - x2gogetapps: Support scanning of sub-directories when searching for
       .desktop files. We allow to dive down one level into subdirs, we on
       purpose do not recursively dive into the complete subtree.
(Fixes: #633).
     - Make man2html an optional tool. Don't fail if it is missing on the
       build system (required for openSUSE/SLES builds).
     - Fix x2goserver-xsession/Makefile on SUSE. Detect SUSE distro and
       Xsession related directory symlinks (xinitrc.d and Xclients.d).
     - Hack for x2goserver-xsession/Makefile during SUSE builds. If
       directoy /usr/share/doc/packages/brp-check-suse is present, the
build env
       is also considered to be a SUSE system.
     - Trigger Xsession code for SUSE systems (look for /etc/SUSE-brand or
       /etc/SuSE-release for SUSE system recognition). (Fixes: #671).
     - x2gosqlitewrapper.c: Fix rpmlint error:
       Return the exitcode of execve().
     - Fix gramma in error message (in x2goresume-session).
     - x2gocleansessions: Call x2gormforward also on terminated
sessions. This
       will make sure that re-assigned ports are really available on new
     - x2golistsessions(_root): Only update session state in session DB if
       x2goagent's state file really exists. This addresses a problem
that occurs
       when x2golistsessions gets called via an x2gobroker-agent. The
       x2golistsessions script may show session states (--all-servers) of
       sessions on other servers that have session states files on their
       /tmp dirs. These files are not accessible for that
x2golistsessions script
       and should simply be ignored. (Fixes: #638).
     - Provide pam_namespace support for has_agent_state_file() function.
     - Fix missing session list output if state file does not exist on the
       machine that runs x2golistsessions(_root).
     - Accept more verbose "DENY" output from x2godesktopsharing.
     - Make sure that all "su"-to-user-contexts use /bin/sh for wrapping
       the executed command (in x2gocleansessions and
     - Also enforce /bin/sh as shell in su command in x2goprint.
     - README.i18n: Add file that explains the translation workflow for
       this package. Thanks to Mark Pedersen-Cook for drafting this file.
     - Make SSH agent forwarding work after having reconnected via SSH and
       having resumed a session. (Fixes: #672). Thanks to Robert Siemer for
       coming up with that idea.
     - Fix cross-user X2Go Desktop Sharing after being broken by
       clipboard mode feature (and probably other code changes).
     - Document session startup / resumption failures (and their reasons) in
       server-side log output.
     - Handle AD domain users gracefully when X2Go is used with SQLite DB
       backend. (Fixes: #664).
     - Improve sanitizer, use 'x2gosid' sanitizer for session IDs
       Drop unused 'pnixusername' sanitizer in 4.0.1.x release of X2Go
     - Allow usernames in session IDs of length 48 chars.
     - Start sshfs with a timeout of 30 seconds (because it never
finishes if
       something is wrong with the client-side TCP socket). Also
       mountpoints erroneously registered sshfs mountpoints if sshfs command
       times out. Furthermore, print errors to STDERR (not STDOUT). (Fixes:
     - Handle execution of ss command from Perl script x2golistdesktops
in a way
       that not only works on Debian, but also on Fedora et al. (Fixes:
     - Provide legacy support for old File::Path packages in x2godbadmin.
       (Fixes: #715).
     - Fix wrong evocation of x2gosyslog ("error" -> "err").
     - Use "undef $dbh" instead of "$dbh->disconnect()". Fixes SQLite3
issues on
       SLE 11.x.
     - Only call $dbh->sqlite_busy_timeout() if the $dbh object is
capable of
       that. Works around a too-old DBD::SQLite package on SLE 11.x.
     - Legacy for applications (and X2Go scripts) that expect
       set in the X2Go session's environment. (Fixes: #644).
     - Add man page for x2gogetapps. Weave into that a security / disclaimer
       message as proposed by Stefan Baur. (Fixes: #728).

     + Add to R (x2goserver): perl-X2Go-Server.

     + Remove macro call %systemd_pre for Fedora/EPEL-7 builds. No such
macro in
       Fedora/RHEL7. (Fixes: 698).
     + Create system user x2gouser with $HOME in /var/lib/x2go. (Fixes:
     + Always set BuildRoot: parameter.
     + BuildRequires: SUSE <= 11.3 has xorg-x11, not xinit.
     + Requires (x2goserver-xsession): SUSE <= 11.3 has xorg-x11, not xinit.
     + No Bashisms in scriptlets.

   * New upstream version (
     - x2gocleansessions: Redirect stdin, stdout and stderr to
/dev/null, test
       for the existence of the file descriptor before issuing the close,
