OSX versions older than 10.9, Debian Squeeze and Wheezy, Ubuntu Precise
and Trusty, CentOS 6.x, 7.0 and 7.1, Python 2.6, GStreamer 0.10,

* HTML5 client improvements, including clipboard synchronization.
* multiple / deep colour support in both client and server: for example
you can now shadow 8-bit displays and render deep colour with the OpenGL
