VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures. SSVNC is two things: * An enhanced version of the TightVNC client with support for more encodings and color modes, support for x11vnc and UltraVNC extensions, dynamic screen resizing, an improved popup menu, etc. * A GUI that helps set up an SSL (using stunnel) or SSH tunnel to connect to the VNC server through, as well as forwarding of ports for audio (esound/aRts), SMB, CUPS etc.

    2011-12-02 - Adam Conrad <> ssvnc (1.0.29-2build1) precise; urgency=low * No-change rebuild to drop spurious libsfgcc1 dependency on armhf.

    2011-11-11 - Magnus Holmgren <> ssvnc (1.0.29-2) unstable; urgency=low * Also get CPPFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags. Pass it as EXTRA_DEFINES to vnc_unixsrc/*/Makefile.

    2011-11-10 - Magnus Holmgren <> ssvnc (1.0.29-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release. * Install ReleaseNotes as upstream changelog file. * Simply build-depend on libjpeg-dev instead of libjpeg62-dev | libjpeg-dev (Closes: #644808). * Install a symlink in /usr/bin instead of including the main vncviewer binary twice in the package. * Add build-arch and build-indep targets to debian/rules. * nostrip.patch: Remove strip command from the Makefile, allowing DEB_BUILD_OPTONS=nostrip to work. * Get CFLAGS and LDFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags. * buildflags.patch: Pass CFLAGS and LDFLAGS through via ./Makefile as CDEBUGFLAGS and LOCAL_LDFLAGS to vnc_unixsrc/*/Makefile. This results in -fno-strict-aliasing (added by xmkmf by default) being dropped, but that doesn't seem to cause any problems. * format-security.patch: Fix some flaws uncovered by -Wformat-security. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2.

    2011-02-06 - Magnus Holmgren <> ssvnc (1.0.28-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release (Closes: #592873, "Connection from UVNC Single-Click does not start vncviewer when -acceptpopups is set"). * Convert to source format 3.0 (quilt), changing /bin/sh into /bin/bash (see below) in the install target instead. * debian/copyright: Update years of copyright; remove notice that the UltraVNC DSM helper module is not included (which it is since 1.0.24-1). * Remove redundant bash dependency; bash isn't going to be non-essential any time soon. * Up Standards-Version to 3.9.1.

    2010-05-23 - Magnus Holmgren <> ssvnc (1.0.27-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release. * bashisms.dpatch: Don't try to fix all bashisms; instead change /bin/sh to /bin/bash and depend on bash, which is small in this context.

    2010-02-06 - Magnus Holmgren <> ssvnc (1.0.25-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release. * confusing_-h.dpatch and bashisms.dpatch: adjusted.

    2009-10-31 - Magnus Holmgren <> ssvnc (1.0.24-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release. * ssvnc -help now prints a help message instead of passing -help to the tcl interpreter. * confusing_-h.dpatch (new): Improve upstream's handling of -help a bit (Closes: 544250). * ultraftp_path.dpach (new): Use hardcoded (and correct for this package) path to ultraftp.jar if SSVNC_ULTRA_FTP_JAR is unset, so that file transfers work even if ssvncviewer is executed directly. * bashisms.dpatch (new): Fix most bashisms (all that matter). * Drop no_openssl.dpatch and build ultravnc_dsm_helper; OpenSSL exception has been granted. Build-depend on libssl-dev. * Promote stunnel4 from Recommends to Depends (Closes: #553411), depend directly on openssl, depend on tk instead of tk8.4, and tweak java recommendations. * Add README.source. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3.

    2009-08-01 - Magnus Holmgren <> ssvnc (1.0.23-1) unstable; urgency=low * Initial release (Closes: #504134).
