Cendio has developed several "hotfixes" for problems that was discovered 
after the ThinLinc 1.6.0 release. None of these are security related, but 
they includes bug fixes and feature enhancements.

* The ThinLinc WTS sound driver (which includes microphone support) has 
  been enhanced in several ways. It now supports mixing several streams, 
  allowing support for more than one application at a time. Programs based 
  on DirectSound, such as Windows Media Player, works much better. The 
  driver is now compatible with systems running Microsoft SoftGrid. 

  An updated WTS Tools package, which includes the WTS sound driver, can 
  be downloaded from http://www.cendio.se/files/thinlinc/updates/b2431/. 

* An updated rdesktop package is available. This package solves a problem 
  with slow listings of large directories, when the Windows client is 
  used. It also fixes a problem which can cause "segmentation fault" with 
  newer versions of "libX11". 

  The updated rdesktop package is available from 

* An updated version of "homecreatefilter" is available, which solves a 
  problem with local drive redirection, as well as other fixes. This 
  package is not yet available as a public hotfix. Please contact us if 
  you need this update. 

* A compatibility problem regarding Local Drive Redirection on Red Hat 
  Enterprise Linux 5 has been discovered. It affects the Windows client as 
  well as version 1.5.0 and earlier of the Linux client. Version 1.6.0 of 
  the Linux client is not affected, on a typical system. For more 
  information, see the Red Hat Bug at 
  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=241348 . If you are 
  affected by this problem, please add yourself to the CC list in the Red 
  Hat Bugzilla.
