        Release Notes: Printing support was fixed for CUPS 1.2, dropping support for older versions of CUPS. Foomatic support was added. Fixes were made for RDP/VNC sessions, for fullscreen sessions, for "running" sessions, for backingstore with older clients, for encodings in rootless mode, and for load balancing.

            Release Notes: Fixes were made for unauthorized access to the session database, problems with file sharing over the Internet, and failure to resume the session for Windows clients in non-fullscreen mode. Support for new features of the upcoming NoMachine NX 1.5.0 release was added. For instance, rootless nxagent adds roundtrip suppression to single application window sessions, resulting in major speed gains. Seamless resizing is done with mouse-dragging of window borders. A keyboard shortcut (ctrl+alt+f) was added to toggle from fullscreen to windowed mode and back. Applications keep running (instead of being sent to sleep) while NX session is suspended.

              Release Notes: This release adds printing to locally attached printer (via Samba and userspace cupsd binding to non-standard port), file sharing from local NX client to remote NX session (via smbmount/smbmnt), audio tunneling from remote NX session to local speakers (via artsd/esd), better user support (via fully cleaned up and documented node.conf.sample file), and a forward to commercial NoMachine NX server via destination port. It introduces 7 different levels of logging. Session encryption can now be forced by the server. DEFAULT_X_WM is now supported, and can start window manager of choice. It also fixes a number of bugs.

                Release Notes: Fixes have been provided for the following reported issues: keyboard mapping problems; unix-custom mode (now parameters to commands are correctly passed); password prompt detection in nxnode-login; locking to prevent usage of the same $DISPLAY by different users; resume when agent is no longer there; error message shown to user when session startup fails; handling of /tmp/.X*-lock files; handling of not closed sessions in "terminating" status; resume of multiple suspended sessions.

                  Release Notes: User-specific configuration files now override the system-wide configuration. FreeNX and NoMachine NX may now be installed on one system without conflict. Connections to the commercial NoMachine NX server from FreeNX can be forwarded. A generic connection forwarding mechanism was added for "chaining" nxservers. Floating window mode was added for "rootless" nxagent. A floating window may also be used for direct nxproxy:nxproxy connections. Security was increased by prohibiting port and X11 forwarding in ssh-key and by limiting the permissions to the "nxserver" command.

                    Release Notes: Settings are now in config files. 'nxnode' supports "autostart" functionality. You can forward connections to the commercial NoMachine NX server for insta+operation of FreeNX and NoMachine NX on the same system without conflict. A generic connection forwarding mechanism allows "chaining" of nxservers. "floating window" support for "rootless" nxagent in preparation for the upcoming 1.5.0 NX libraries. "floating window" also for direct nxproxy:nxproxy connections. "nxsetup" now has "--uninstall". Increased security by suppression of port- & X11-forwarding in ssh-key.

                      Release Notes: Important security fixes were made. Any version prior to 0.2.8 should not be used in production, and such versions are not supported any more. In prior versions, the authority file was not used at all, which had the same effect as if "xhost +localhost" was set, allowing any local or NX user to access any other NX user's $DISPLAY. Two other potential security problems (where umask was not set to a safe value) were removed.
