 +=== New Version Numbering ===
 +
 +Due to the large number of updated builds of X2Go Client (such as 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build5 -> 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build6) the X2Go Client version numbering has been simplified. It is now based on just the X2Go Client version number and the date of the build.
 +
 +The initial release of X2Go Client for Windows is 4.0.3.0 is "​4.0.3.0-20141021"​. "​20141021"​ is the date "​October 21st, 2014".
 +
 +If a new build had to be released the following day, it would be "​4.0.3.0-20141022"​.
 +
 +Any changes to the X2Go Client for Windows source code that are not regular cross-platform release of X2Go Client (previously:​ "​hotfixes"​) ​ would also result in only the 8 digit date being changed.
 +
 +=== Bundled Cygwin components have been slimmed down ===
 +
 +X2Go Client relies on certain 3rd-party executables and libraries from the Cygwin project, so it has to bundle them. Unfortunately,​ those files often have security updates, which result in many new X2Go Client builds being released. These Cygwin components have been slimmed down to reduce the number of security update builds. Specifically,​ Bash has been replaced with Ash. And OpenSSH has been built with fewer dependencies.
