1.78.  gtk-vnc

1.78.1.  RHBA-2009:1301: bug fix update

An updated gtk-vnc package that fixes several bugs is now available.
gtk-vnc is a VNC viewer widget for GTK. It is built using co-routines allowing it to be completely asynchronous while remaining single threaded.
This update addresses the following issues:
  • the handling of the virtual mouse pointer could result in the pointer getting stuck against an invisible wall, unable to move into some areas of the virtual machine display area. (BZ#487560)
  • handling of non-US layout keyboards had flaws making it impossible to type certain key sequences, for example Shift+Tab. (BZ#357491)
  • the gtk-vnc package was re-based to version 0.3.8, from version 0.3.2, to address problems with virtual mouse pointer movement handling and the conversion of "keysyms" for non-US layout keyboards. The update also improves interoperability with VNC servers and extensions. (BZ#489326)
All gtk-vnc users should install this updated package which addresses these issues.
