X2Go Client (4.0.1.2) released

Dear all,

the X2Go project is proud to announce a new release of the X2Go
component ,,x2goclient''.

New gains of this version of ,,x2goclient'' are:

   o GSSAPI support.
   o RPM builds directly from X2Go upstream.
   o Make win32 installation of X2Go Client removable.
   o Fix pulseaudio cookie file search for newer versions of
     pulseaudio.
   o Allow ~ operator in path names
   o New option --broker-cacertfile, specify custom root-CA for
     broker https connections.
   o Broker client: fix storage path for customly allowed SSL certs.
   o Become more tolerant with white spaces in session profile options.
   o New cmdline arg --tray-icon. Allow showing the tray icon when
     in hidden mode.
   o Notification bubbles for starting / resuming sessions. This feature
     will probably be extended in the next X2Go Client version (for the
     sake of those who feel this as a regression for their deployed
     setups).

Also please welcome our new maintainer for the MS Windows builds of  
X2Go Client: Michael 'Mike' DePaulo.

        qtbrowserplugin package.
      + For EPEL-5 builds: replace full path to qmake-qt4 and lrelease.
      + Split up package into bin:packages: x2goclient, x2goplugin,
