Okay, So I went ahead and downloaded the sources for 0.16. from  
https://www.xpra.org/src/[1], I extracted and followed the README, installed all 
dependencies listed for Debian based oses, executed 
./setup.py install --home=install but got this:
found gcc version: 4.8.4
running install
running build
running build_py

Any idea how I can get this going? What am I missing?

Thanks alot!
