Xming 20051209

1) Lot of changes to XLaunch, client launching:-
'Start a program' altered to use Local clients, or Remote clients via PuTTY or OpenSSH,
PuTTY is run without a Command Prompt console, as the password can be entered in advance,
OpenSSH is run with a Command Prompt console, as the password is entered interactive.
The commands run by 'Start program on remote computer.' are:- 'plink -X -pw "password" "user@computer" "program"' or 'ssh -Y "user@computer" "program"' so try these by hand, from Command Prompt, if you have problems.
If your need to enter a PATH to your binaries: an entry field has been provided, where all paths must double back-slashed.
Various client dialog fields made larger and a PuTTY password field added.
Font Server entry field added, and XML tag handling, to/from .launch files, altered to match all changes.
2) Release of an alternative Mesa render version (much slower, but renders more clients).

Xming 20051203

1) Cleanup of crashes in the 'Start a Program' of XLaunch (during error/termination). WaitForServer made to work correctly using DISPLAY.
2) Reversion of the icon code xalloc->malloc changes, no evidence that the change helped fix Øyvind Harboe's crash. -noicons option retained.

Xming 20051201

1) Error window for command errors from the Xmingrc file, title name correction.
2) .xlaunch file's default XML made more sensible.
3) XLaunch 'Additional parameters for Xming' dialog entry made scrollable.
4) XLaunch 'Connect to host' dialog entry made twice as wide.

Xming 20051129

1) Error window for command errors from the Xmingrc file has been made more intelligible.
2) New option -noicons added to the start up of Xming. Disables conversion of X icons in -multiwindow mode. The default is nochange, icons converted, and displayed on the taskbar etc.
This has been put in:-
a) because of an occasional flake in miGetImage (as usual I haven't seen it :)).
b) this will speed up the server when lots of Windows are popping.
c) New work to be done on icons may affect pre XP/Windows 2003 systems, bugzilla 4491.
The option will be removed when and if the flakiness is traced and fixed.
3) An extra option has been added to Xmingrc (and the example_Xmingrc file updated)
execd creates a process with a Command Prompt console.
The previous behaviour of exec remains unchanged (no Command Prompt console.
When trying out a command for the first time try execd first, if you get an annoying console or a console start-up flash use exec.
The use of exec and execd is by definition insecure, so secure access to your Xmingrc file.

Xming 20051124

1) Includes a patch for Xprintf() to make it, and therefore keyboard mapping, work on Windows 2000.
2) CVS rolled up-to-date and the xkb directory made current in the installation (was Alex's last version).

Xming 20051120

1) Check result of LookupIDByType() call for null...(thanks Vassili Bourdo).
2) Protection for bad calls to Win32System in xkb/ddx (thanks to tracing by Øyvind Harboe).

Xming 20051119

1) Relocation of xkbcomp.exe to the base directory from sub-directory xkb.
2) Bugzilla 4578 https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4578 has been applied to CVS.

Xming 20051118

1) Fix for the accumulating xkb_* files.
2) Installer changed to give a readme about the need for fonts, somewhere.
3) Installer changed to offer an option of associating .xlaunch files with XLaunch.exe, if you choose to install XLaunch.

Xming & Xming-fonts 20051117

If you don't have a font server: install the Xming-fonts package as well as the Xming package.
I split the fonts out from the Xming installers since:-
a) they don't change very often
b) I don't use them :)
c) high footprint and download overhead, the size of the Xming-font package is ~8M, the size of the Xming package ~2M.
Install both packages to the same directory (i.e. say Yes when asked: The folder: C:\Program Files\Xming already exists. Wold you like to install to that folder anyway?)
Two minor bug fixes to Xming since the Overlay release of 20051116:-
1) Reversion of the log file to the original overriding behaviour (no rotation to .old).
2) Fix for the missing Xorg logo in the About dialog.
