Release Notes: Connecting to a Unix socket is now supported by the Unix vncviewer. The lim_accept local port protection is checked for SSH compatibility before being used. The Unix ssvncviewer can now be launched directly and easily from the ssvnc command line with the -viewer option. There is now initial support for the recent UltraVNC RFB 3.8 compatibility. A number of new features may be enabled via environment variables.
Release Notes: This release contains minor bugfixes for SSVNC. Keyboard grabbing in full screen mode is improved. A handshake deadlock bug is fixed with UltraVNC Single Click when -acceptpopupsc is specified. A proxy host may now be an IPV6 mapped IPV4 address.
Release Notes: The Unix and Mac OS X VNC viewer binary (ssvncviewer) supports IPv6 natively. The ultravnc_dsm_helper tool has been extended to fetching of SSL certificates, IPv6 support, TCP relaying, and daemon mode. Spaces in SSH usernames are now handled correctly. Some convenience utilities for Putty were added to the GUI on Windows.
Release Notes: IPv6 support is provided on Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows for nearly all usage scenarios, including reverse and unencrypted connections. On Unix and Mac OS X, for reverse connections, the proxy helper scripts (e.g. VeNCrypt support) now loop indefinitely until the user stops the listening mode. Reverse connections can specify a network interface to listen on. Users can enable logging for troubleshooting Plink (SSH) connections on Windows.
Release Notes: For VNC server SSL keys signed by a Certificate Authority (i.e. not self-signed ones), the user is now better informed on what to do to authenticate the server. UltraVNC's RSA-based encryption plugin 'SecureVNC' is supported. The 'No Encryption' option is shown by default. The Unix vncviewer provides an -appshare option to work with x11vnc's simple application sharing mechanism. A per-profile SSH knownhosts file is enabled for chained SSH tunnels and similar proxy schemes.
Release Notes: VeNCrypt and ANONTLS SSL encryption are now supported on all platforms, including Windows. Additionally, the SSVNC VeNCrypt bridge enables VeNCrypt and ANONTLS for any third party VNC Viewer on Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows. Listening VNC connections can show a popup dialog asking whether to accept the connection or not. The extra info provided by UltraVNC Single Click reverse connections is also supported. Different fonts for the GUI may be selected. The drawing performance of the hextile encoding has been improved, and the use of it can be toggled in the popup menu.
Release Notes: Support was added for VirtualGL's TurboVNC (an enhanced TightVNC for high framerate usage) encoding and TightVNC modifications. The UltraVNC MS-Logon authentication method is supported. TightVNC compression and quality levels are now automatically determined from the network latency.
Release Notes: SSVNC's SSL encryption is extended to support the VeNCrypt and TLS security type extensions to VNC for both forward and reverse connections. Anonymous Diffie-Hellman encryption is now available for all SSL/TLS modes. SSL Certificate Revocation Lists are supported. CUPS print tunneling is greatly improved, and the default settings should work for most setups. The Windows helper programs are updated to their most recent versions. On Unix, stunnel is updated to the latest version.
Release Notes: The Unix and Mac OS X X11 vncviewer can now do client-side scaling of the desktop. Zeroconf/Bonjour is added for locating nearby VNC servers. The 'Escape Keys' option enables many of the popup menu actions to be performed via hot-keys. It is now easier to disable encryption in the ssvnc GUI. The 'stunnel EXEC' local port protection mechanism is enabled by default. x11vnc can use the ssvnc -chatonly mode to display an UltraVNC chat window on the local X console. A desktop entry file is installed to have an SSVNC entry appear in desktop menus.
Release Notes: This release supports the UltraVNC repeater proxy and Single Click connection modes. SOCKS proxies and proxy chaining now work on Windows. UltraVNC file transfer is much improved. UltraVNC DSM encryption and general symmetric encryption modes are supported. Local machine port protection mechanisms are provided. A new option selects the X11 VNC Viewer on Mac OS X. The ZYWRLE encoding (a wavelet based extension to ZRLE) was added. The Unix Viewer's popup window is split into two columns and includes new actions.
