FreeNX is out

dear skoletuxe,

i forward this info from Fabian:

FreeNX 0.2.7 is out. You might have noticed that it was available from the
server since two days, but after the catastrophal 0.2.6 release I wanted to
do extensive testing and sleeping before releasing it.

I have now tested:

- - nxclient 1.4.0 snapshot 4 (still used for example on Knoppix 3.6)
- - nxclient 1.4.0 final
- - nxclient 1.3.2
- - kNX

The release is called "Skolelinux Edition", because huge work on it was done
in the Skolelinux testcenter in Gütersloh. I want to thank them for that.

This "branch" 0.2 will also only get new bugfixes or security enhancements,
but no new features.

Also after the 0.2.6 release, I learnt that even with small changes you need
to do extensive testing.

New features will just be in the 0.3.0 or 0.4.0 branches, which will be opened

And here is a question for you:

Which is the most needed feature for you missing in FreeNX (either compared to
commercial NX or just what you can think of)?

As a last part here is the ChangeLog:

20.11.2004 FreeNX 0.2.7 "Skolelinux Edition"
        * Fix nxserver to work again with KNX-Client. ('\r' is evil)
        * Fix timeout in nxnode-login to allow proper session management
        * Fixed possible race condition for the wait-file.
