Dear all

The X2Go project is proud to announce a new release of the X2Go
component ,,x2goclient''.

New gains of this version of ,,x2goclient'' are:

  o updated translations
  o translation fixes
  o initial support for Qt5 thanks to Sébastien Ducoulombier
  o includes re-release changes on OS X
  o host key type can be programmatically changed
  o switch some host key types from DSA to RSA, more work to be done in this
  o compatibility fix for OS X 10.11+. host keys are in a different directory
    now (/etc/ssh instead of just /etc)
  o Debian package metadata changes
  o support for ANSI X9.9 OTP tokens
  o new --no-autoresume parameter

The X2Go project thanks Martti Pitkänen, Sébastien Ducoulombier, Tor Perkins and
Peter Barth for their valuable input and submitted work.

Please note that binary builds for the Windows platform will likely be a bit

 x2goclient ( RELEASED; urgency=medium
   [ Klaus Ade Johnstad ]
   * New upstream version (
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_nb_no.ts: update Bokmål (Norway) translation file.
   [ Mihai Moldovan ]
   * New upstream release (
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_nb_no.ts: fixup translation by respecting the
       original messages' format, typo fixes and other changes.
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_fi.ts: fixup translation by respecting the original
       messages' format and other changes.
     - src/{ongetpass,onmainwindow}.cpp: fixup QPlastiqueStyle usage on Qt5.
       This particular style has been removed/replaced by Fusion, which
       incorporates features of both Plastique and Clearlooks styles.
     - x2goclient.spec: whitespace only.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: add (default) MacPorts prefix, /usr/local/bin and
       /opt/X11/bin to x2goclient's environment and child environments before
       starting xmodmap. Fixes: #1019. Requires a re-release of X2Go Client for
       OS X.
     - src/x2goutils.{cpp,h}: add new function add_to_path () to add multiple
       entries to a PATH-like string if they do not exist in there yet.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: replace old code to modify the PATH value with the
       new add_to_path () function.
     - src/{onmainwindow,sshmasterconnection}.cpp: refactoring and whitespace
       only changes following up the #1027 patch.
     - src/onmainwindow.h: add new enum for selecting SSH host key types.
     - src/onmainwindow.h: rename ONMainWindow::generateHostDsaKey () to
       ONMainWindow::generateHostKey () and make key type selectible. Fixes:
       #1003. Host key type selection currently only works within the code.
       Replace calls to former ONMainWindow::generateHostDsaKey () with the
       generalized function and request an RSA-type key.
     - src/help.cpp: actually make help descriptions translatable. Looks ugly
       and is cumbersome to use, but there seems to be no other way to do
     - src/help.h: typo fix in comment only.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: add some comments related to maybe using
       add_to_path ().
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: work around changed SSH host key locations in OS X
       10.11+. Fixes: #1079. Also check /etc/ssh/ for keys.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: fix last commit by using QFileInfo instead of
       QDir. This lets us use the exists () member function correctly.
     - {nsis/x2goclient.nsi,res/i18n/x2goclient_{da,es,et,fi,nl,zh_tw}.ts}:
       replace left-overs of "X2go" with the correct "X2Go" spelling.
       This mostly touches obsolete strings and file names, that need to be
       cleaned, but it's still worthwhile to not have it show up when searching
       for the old string. Given that NTFS is normally case-insensitive,
       removing the files will still work.
   * debian/control:
     - Maintainer change in package: X2Go Developers <>.
     - Uploaders: add myself. Also, force a rebuild due to the changed
   [ Mike DePaulo ]
   * New upstream release (
     - Windows: add sshd debug1 logging when using the --debug flag.
     - Windows: Revert back to Cygwin components that have not been
     - Windows: Update PuTTY from 0.66 to 0.67, which fixes
     - Windows: Update bundled Win32 OpenSSL from 1.0.1q to 1.0.1t,
       which fixes the multiple CVEs announced on 2016-01-28,
       2016-03-01 & 2016-05-03.
   [ Martti Pitkänen ]

   * New upstream version (
     - misc {src/,}: port to Qt5.
   [ Tor Perkins ]
   * New upstream release (
     - src/{onmainwindow,sshmasterconnection}.{cpp,h}: add support for ANSI
       X9.9 OTP tokens. Fixes: #1027. For this to work correctly, the challenge
       string needs to be displayed to the user.
     - src/sshmasterconnection.cpp: add support for Mobile OTP tokens and
       references for the other token types. Fixes: #1036.
   [ Oleksandr Shneyder ]
   * New upstream release (
     - reset session data in broker config.
     - add "--no-autoresume" parameter.
   [ Peter Barth ]
