Release Notes: Two new GUI modes are introduced: SSH-only (sshvnc) and Terminal-Services (tsvnc). The SSH-only mode does not show any SSL related options, and so is less distracting if you never plan on using SSL. The Terminal-Services mode is also SSH-only, and it assumes that x11vnc 0.9.3 or later is available on the remote computer. With this assumption, it can do a number of convenient things such as automatically find your desktop session, create a desktop session if one is not found, set the session type (KDE, GNOME, etc.), size, and color depth, enable remote CUPS printing, VNC file transfer, etc.
Release Notes: The Unix VNC Viewer now supports UltraVNC file transfer via an auxiliary Java program.
Release Notes: The default VNC server SSL certificate management is now more like SSH: users must decide whether or not to accept unrecognized certificates, and if a VNC server's certificate appears to have changed, a warning dialog appears. A Unix username and password dialog is available for logging in via x11vnc's -unixpw mode. For VNC servers that print out their port number (x11vnc and vncserver) and are started via SSH, SSH's built-in SOCKS proxy may be used to dynamically redirect to the port without having to specify it. In the Unix viewer, UltraVNC Chat now has its own window.
Release Notes: For USB flash drive usage, creating a directory "Home" in the top-level SSVNC directory will cause the VNC profiles and certificates to be kept there instead of in $HOME. This way, the data follows the flash drive. A configuration setting was added to work around older SSH implementations that do not run a command when the "-t" option is supplied.
Release Notes: Listen mode was improved. URLs using schemes such as vnc://, vncs://, vncssl://, and vncssh:// are supported. A standalone STUNNEL redirector mode was added.
Release Notes: Using port numbers lower than VNC's default port (5900) now works on Windows (for example, myhost.com:443).
Release Notes: The GUI now includes a "Fetch Cert" button to allow retrieval of the server's SSL certificate and, after your manual verification, use it and save it in VNC connection profiles. For the Unix TightVNC viewer, the following Ultra VNC extensions are now supported: Single Window, 1/n Server Side Scaling, Text Chat, and Server Input Control. Also added to the Unix viewer are grey scales for the low color modes, and there are fixes for painting errors when X backingstore is not available.
Release Notes: Many new features and fixes to the Unix TightVNC Viewer appear in this release. RealVNC ZRLE compression support has been added, along with a 16bpp mode for 32bpp displays and very low 64- and 8-color modes for 8bpp. The -ycrop option is for use with x11vnc's client side caching to hide the pixel cache region from view. It is applied automatically when use of the caching is detected. The popup menu has been expanded to allow changing many settings (color formats, encodings, cursor modes, and view-only) on the fly without having to restart the viewer. Fullscreen toggling now works on KDE.
Release Notes: The components and documentation were changed to reflect the new short name "ssvnc" for the SSL/SSH VNC Viewer. Minor bugs were fixed. Solaris x86 binaries were added to the software bundle.
Release Notes: Native support on Mac OS X is provided by the bundled Chicken of the VNC viewer.
