Windows-Specific Release notes for X2Go Client

Major Windows-specific changes since

  • Multiple security updates
  • Under Options → Settings → Pulseaudio settings, you can now disable audio input (microphone support.) This itself is desirable for many users, but it also serves as a workaround for the issue of PulseAudio failing to do output simply because input is unavailable.

Current Release

The regular installer, x2goclient- , is available under this folder:

Supported Windows Versions

X2Go Client is currently only released as a 32-bit x86 build. Both 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x86 versions of Windows are supported via this build.

  • Windows XP 32-bit SP3 (deprecated)
  • Windows XP 64-bit SP2 (deprecated)
  • Windows Vista SP2
  • Windows 7 SP1
  • Windows 8.1 (with “Update 1”)
  • Windows 10 (1511)

These versions of Windows without the latest (specified) service pack / major update may be compatible, but are rarely (if ever) tested. They are not officially supported.

Corresponding server versions of Windows are also supported, but receive minimal testing:

  • Windows Server 2003 SP2 (deprecated)
  • Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 (deprecated)
  • Windows Server 2008 SP2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 (with or without “Update 1”)
  • Windows Server Technical Preview

Any incompatibility or bug with a specific version of Windows should be reported via our bug-tracker.

Deprecated versions of Windows are going to be dropped once a technical obstacle arises.
