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: 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: 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.
Release Notes: Minor improvements to the GUI. SMB directory caching timeout has increased to 20 seconds.
Release Notes: This release implements "double proxy" connections for Windows with SSL and "double SSH" connections. For SSL mode, this involves two Web proxies, usually a local proxy connection to leave a firewall followed by a second proxy connection to enter another firewall to where the VNC server is. For SSH mode, this involves an initial SSH session to a firewall gateway followed by a second SSH connection to an internal machine running the VNC server. Standalone (i.e., no VNC or SSH) port knocking is enabled.
Release Notes: This release enables creating SSL certificates and private keys via the GUI. External certificates can also be imported. Port knocking may now be done when the VNC or SSH connection finishes; this allows for closing firewall ports.
