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".

problem with local drive redirection, as well as other fixes. This
