Version 0.11.2 is now available:

This is a bug fix release without any major new features.
The most important fix is for the timeout issues which have been
reported with MS Windows clients locking sessions.
Please do let me know if you encounter any issues, preferably on-list.


Here's a copy of the RELEASE_NOTES:

The most notable changes are:
* Windows clients now kill their client connection properly, allowing
others to resume sessions much more quickly (without relying on the
timeout to kick in).
* Xpra has been made the default again as far too many Linux
distributions ship outdated versions of NX, and also because NX 4.0 is
going to be proprietary.
* The software now does a simple version check on startup (Windows and
OSX only) You can disable this if you wish, see FAQ for details.
* Embedded server mode: the server now runs completely embedded in the
client (Windows and OSX only by default), using an internal virtual
socket. Avoiding firewall warnings, improving performance, etc.
* Windows builds updated to GTK 2.22.1 (thanks to all-in-one installers)
* Xpra server now disconnects other clients when the new connection is

Other minor items:
* Better menu hover for OSX and Windows
* Bigger warnings when using SELinux
* Try harder to avoid disallowed ports (ie SELinux), added blacklist file
* Updated documentation
* Xpra bug: a failed login would not disconnect client.
* Xpra --no-pulseaudio flag no honoured properly
* Xpra on OSX would ignore first command line switch! (oops)
* support for FreeRDP as well as RDesktop for RDP client
