====== Windows-Specific Release notes for X2Go Client ======

===== Major Windows-specific changes since  =====

    - Do not show Pulseaudio warning on Windows, if Pulseaudio is disabled in
      settings or by command line.
    - Windows: Update PuTTY from 0.70 to 0.71. Fixes quite a list of issues
      discovered through the EU-funded bug bounty programme. Not all are
      relevant to X2Go Client.
    - Windows: upgrade bundled VcXsrv to
    - Windows: add support for
x3270-fonts, including adding a pretty nasty
      but necessary fonts.* file regeneration hook.

      discovered through the EU-funded bug bounty programme and other security
    - Windows: upgrade bundled VcXsrv to
    - Windows: upgrade PulseAudio from 7.1 to 13.0.
    - Windows: remove libz. Was previously used by libzip, which has not been
      shipped for quite some time.
    - Windows: Update Win32 OpenSSL from 1.0.2n to 1.0.2u. Implicit.
    - Windows: Upgrade libssh from 0.7.4 to 0.9.3 (while maintaining Pageant
      support). Drop libssh_threads library not provided (or used) any longer.
    - x2goclient.pro: update comment mentioning that libssh does not provide
      pkgconfig files on non-UNIX/Windows platforms any longer and drop
      libssh_thread linkage.

The installer, x2goclient- , is available
under this folder:
  * https://code.x2go.org/releases/binary-win32/x2goclient/releases/

===== Supported Windows Versions =====
X2Go Client is currently only released as a 32-bit x86 build. Both 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x86 versions of Windows are supported via this build.

  * Windows 7 SP1
  * Windows 8.1 (with "Update 1")
  * Windows 10 (1709)
  * Windows 10 (1803)

These versions of Windows without the latest (specified) service pack / major update are probably compatible, but are rarely (if ever) tested. They are not officially supported.

Corresponding server versions of Windows are also supported, but receive minimal testing:
  * Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
  * Windows Server 2012
  * Windows Server 2012 R2 (with or without "Update 1")
  * Windows Server 2016

===== Installation Instructions =====
See this page:

===== Windows-Specific Bug Fixes =====

===== Noteworthy Windows-Specific Bugs

Your Windows username has non-English characters. 2 Those characters are in a different language than the Windows "system locale".
