Sponsoring X2Go Development

Companies who provide X2Go sessions to their staff or to their customers are welcome to request X2Go new features. Feature development can be contracted. If possible, the requested feature will become a part of the publicly available X2Go components.

Contact for Sponsors

If you or your company want(s) to sponsor X2Go development, please contact one of the official professional supporters of X2Go by mail. You may then be redirected to one of the other developers, depending on the nature of your request and the skills of the developer(s).
