 +====== Windows-Specific Release notes for X2Go Client 4.1.2.2 ======
  
 +===== Major Windows-specific changes since  =====
 +
 +<​code>​
 +    - Do not show Pulseaudio warning on Windows, if Pulseaudio is disabled in
 +      settings or by command line.
 +    - Windows: Update PuTTY from 0.70 to 0.71. Fixes quite a list of issues
 +      discovered through the EU-funded bug bounty programme. Not all are
 +      relevant to X2Go Client.
 +    - Windows: upgrade bundled VcXsrv to 1.20.1.4.
 +    - Windows: add support for x3270-fonts,​ including adding a pretty nasty
 +      but necessary fonts.* file regeneration hook.
 +    - Windows: Update PuTTY from 0.71 to 0.73. Fixes another round of issues
 +      discovered through the EU-funded bug bounty programme and other security
 +      problems.
 +    - Windows: upgrade bundled VcXsrv to 1.20.6.0.
 +    - Windows: upgrade PulseAudio from 7.1 to 13.0.
 +    - Windows: remove libz. Was previously used by libzip, which has not been
 +      shipped for quite some time.
 +    - Windows: Update Win32 OpenSSL from 1.0.2n to 1.0.2u. Implicit.
 +    - Windows: Upgrade libssh from 0.7.4 to 0.9.3 (while maintaining Pageant
 +      support). Drop libssh_threads library not provided (or used) any longer.
 +    - x2goclient.pro:​ update comment mentioning that libssh does not provide
 +      pkgconfig files on non-UNIX/​Windows platforms any longer and drop
 +      libssh_thread linkage.

 +==== Current Release ====
 +
 +The installer, x2goclient-4.1.2.2-2020.02.13-setup.exe , is available under this folder:
 +  * https://​code.x2go.org/​releases/​binary-win32/​x2goclient/​releases/​4.1.2.2-2020.02.13/​
 +
 +===== 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 7 SP1
 +  * Windows 8.1 (with "​Update 1")
 +  * Windows 10 (1709)
 +  * Windows 10 (1803)
 +
 +These versions of Windows without the latest (specified) service pack / major update are probably 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 2008 R2 SP1
 +  * Windows Server 2012
 +  * Windows Server 2012 R2 (with or without "​Update 1")
 +  * Windows Server 2016
 +

 +  * http://​wiki.x2go.org/​doku.php/​doc:​installation:​x2goclient
 +
 +===== Windows-Specific Bug Fixes =====
 +None.
 +
 +===== Noteworthy Windows-Specific Bugs =====
 +
 +[[http://​bugs.x2go.org/​cgi-bin/​bugreport.cgi?​bug=611|bug 611]] The server cannot be added to the known_hosts file (and thus you cannot connect to the server) when both of these conditions are met: 1. Your Windows username has non-English characters. 2 Those characters are in a different language than the Windows "​system locale"​.
