Hello Antoine,

I understand that you are dropping support for pre-2.6 versions of
Python, as mentioned in ticket #665 with the milestone set as 0.15. I
installed a fresh CentOS 5.11 system today with xpra 0.14.13, and
running xpra start results in

xpra main error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xpra/scripts/main.py", line
103, in main
    return run_mode(script_file, err, options, args, mode, defaults)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xpra/scripts/main.py", line
759, in run_mode
    return run_server(error_cb, options, mode, script_file, args)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xpra/scripts/server.py", line
956, in run_server
    from xpra.x11.gtk_x11.wm import wm_check
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xpra/x11/gtk_x11/wm.py", line 449
    except Exception as e:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

So, are these changes already in place? What will be the latest xpra
version to support RHEL/CentOS 5?
