When it is ready ;)
Hopefully this month. I will make beta packages before too long.

This looks like a separate issue.
So the fix from this thread is unlikely to make any difference.

How does this application gets shown again normally? (without xpra involved)
Does it not have a tray icon or something to interact with it?

Windows that are actually minimized (and not destroyed) are shown again
when you connect, and whilst you are still connected they would still be
shown in your task manager (or via alt-tab style window switchers).
If the client application discards its own window, there is nothing xpra
can do to make it show again.
The application should offer a way of doing that.
