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 SSH interaction fix for GSSAPI/Kerberos authentication
  o new bundled VcXsrv version
  o GPG agent changes
  o LXQt support (icons and menu entry)
  o SSH authentication fix (password previously read from command line,
    making it look like the client would hang on Linux, even though it did
  o removed X2Go Browser Plugin - farewell
  o try harder to start the integrated X.Org Server on Windows, avoiding race
    conditions, goes hand-in-hand with...
  o new --xserver-start-limit command line parameter, denoting the number of
    X.Org Server startup tries on Windows (defaults to 3)
  o bundle further modified OpenSSH Cygwin binary and ignore host and user
    private key permissions - folder sharing and client-side printing fix for
    Windows 10+
  o updated translations

The X2Go project thanks Martti Pitkänen, Sébastien Ducoulombier and Robert Parts
for their valuable input and submitted work.

*** NOTE ***
Binary builds for the Windows platform will likely be a bit delayed. The links
do not point to this release yet. If you want to update your Windows client,
please wait for the official release announcement for X2Go Client for Windows.

Binary builds for OS X 10.9 will likely be a bit delayed. The link does not
point to this release yet. If you want to update your OS X 10.9 client, please
wait for the official release announcement for X2Go Client for OS X 10.9.

 x2goclient ( RELEASED; urgency=medium
   [ Mike DePaulo ]
   * New upstream version (
     - src/sshmasterconnection.cpp: Do not attempt to perform Interaction with
       SSH Server (e.g. for changing expired password) when using
       GSSAPI/Kerberos because the interaction code does not support it yet.
       Fixes: #1258
     - Windows: Update PuTTY from 0.68 to 0.70, which fixes PuTTY vulns
       vuln-indirect-dll-hijack-2 & vuln-indirect-dll-hijack-3.
       Note that x2goclient was only ever affected if the permissions on the
       installation folder were changed to give users write access, or if
       x2goclient was copied/extracted to a folder where users could write.
     - Windows: Update Win32 OpenSSL from 1.0.2k to 1.0.2n
       Fixes several CVEs
     - Windows: Upgrade bundled VcXsrv from (X2Go/Arctica Build)
       to (upstream build)
         + Fixes
         + Incompatible with XP & Vista
         + Unmodified except for strip-nondeterminism being run on .gz files

   * New upstream version (
     - don't start gpg agent for PGP card authentication. Use system agent
     - change search string for pcsc_scan.
     - destroy unused SSH sessions for LDAP authentication.
   [ Mihai Moldovan ]
   * New upstream version (
     - misc: update version to
     - res/img/svg: add new lxqt.svg icon file (really helix.svg).
     - res/img/icons/*x*: add new rasterized lxqt.png files in different sizes.
     - res/qresources.qrc: add new lxqt files.
     - src/{onmainwindow.cpp,session{button,widget}.{cpp,h}}: add support for
       LXQt. Fixes: #1263.
     - src/sshmasterconnection.cpp: stop libssh/OpenSSL from querying for a
       passphrase if started with a controlling terminal.
     - remove plugin references.
     - misc: change http:// to https:// where appropriate, but in actual code
       and translation files for now.
     - Makefile: remove plugin references.
     - Makefile: remove x2goclient_*.qm files in clean rule.
     - x2gobrowserplugin-2.4_1/: remove.
     - provider/: remove.
     - INSTALL: remove plugin references.
     - {{build,config}_win_plugin.bat,config_linux_{,static_}}:
     - config_win.bat: remove plugin references.
     - src/{configdialog.cpp,onmainwindow{.cpp,{,_privat}.h}}: remove plugin
     - src/editconnectiondialog.cpp: do not connect signals to slots that do
       not exist on non-Linux platforms.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: add -nopn parameter to VcXsrv startup options,
       making the binary fail if it wasn't able to bind the requested port on
       all addresses.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: print out current DISPLAY value in debug log while
       starting X.Org Server on Windows.
     - src/onmainwindow.{cpp,h}: don't error out directly if starting the X.Org
       Server failed on Windows. Instead, try starting it three times, each
       time with a higher DISPLAY offset. On busy client machines, several
       clients raced for the sockets previously and often failed to start. Also
       check if the server binary actually is still alive before doing the TCP
       connection checks. A dead server won't be able to listen on a socket in
       the first place.
     - {src/{onmainwindow.{cpp,h},help.cpp},man/man1/x2goclient.1}: add new
       option --xserver-start-limit, replacing the formerly hardcoded limit of
       three tries.
     - src/onmainwindow.{cpp,h}: fix compile error on Windows - use std::size_t
       instead of std::ssize_t, treat zero as infinity value while parsing
       option value.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: handle a disabled X.Org Server start limit
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: fix other compile errors/typos.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: another compile error/typo fix.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: let client recognize new --xserver-start-limit
       param correctly.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: add -silent-dup-error parameter to VcXsrv startup
       options, forcing it to silently fail without showing a dialog and thus
       keeping the process running.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: re-add periodic xmodmap keyboard sync for OS
       X/macOS platforms. Was dropped some time ago by accident.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: fix compile error on OS X/macOS.
     - copy-deps-win32.bat: update to 20160121-4 Cygwin bundle, shipping with
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: fix user-facing error messages in Windows X.Org
       Server startup functions.
     - src/pulsemanager.cpp: use QByteArray's constData () instead of data (),
       since we'll never modify the data anyway.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: hook-in chgrp for ~/.x2go/etc on Windows platforms
       to work around a Cygwin permissions bug. Fixes: #1156.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: QProcess:nullDevice () is only available on Qt
       5.2+, so use a workaround for older versions.
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: actually pass the correct group ID to the chgrp
       call and make sure that the warning dialog box also appears whenever the
       exit code indicates a failure.
     - src/onmainwindow.{cpp,h}: remove Cygwin permissions workaround via
     - copy-deps-win32.bat: update to 20180615-1 Cygwin bundle, shipping with
       a further modified OpenSSH Server version at 7.7p1-1-x2go1 and without
     - src/onmainwindow.cpp: disable private host key permissions check in
       OpenSSH Server on Windows. Fixes: #1156.
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_*.ts: update translation files.
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_fi.ts: whitespace and other fixups.
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_fi.ts: add missing numerus form translation and
       other fixups.
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_de.ts: another fixup I previously forgot about.
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_et.ts: whitespace and meta data fixup.
     - res/i18n/x2goclient_et.ts: typo fix: on+ma -> oma.
