Python X2Go (0.4.0.9) released

Dear all,

the X2Go project is proud to announce a new release of the X2Go
component ,,python-x2go''.

New gains of this version of ,,python-x2go'' are:

   o Support for passphrase protect SSH keys.
   o Support for two-factor authentication as provided
     by OpenSSH server 6.2 and above (requires as of yet
     unreleased Python Paramiko module).
   o many many bugfixes.
   o Support pulseaudio (>= 2).
   o Expand the "~" character properly.
   o Fix detection of color depth on Windows machines.

X2Go Component: python-x2go
Version: 0.4.0.9
Status: RELEASE
Date: Wed, 08 Jan 2014 15:14:16 +0100
Fixes these bug report(s): 329 330 335
Changes:
  python-x2go (0.4.0.9) RELEASED; urgency=low
  .
    [ Mike Gabriel ]
    * New upstream version (0.4.0.9):
      - Agent channels in Paramiko can raise an EOFError if the connection
        has got disrupted. Ignoring this.
      - Store the session password in base64 encoded string in order to make
        it harder spotting the long term stored (for the duration of  
the session)
        plain text password.
      - Support encryption passphrases on SSH private key files (X2Go SSH
        connections as well as SSH proxy connections).
      - Invalidate SSH private keys (filename, pkey object) when  
look_for_keys is
        requested.
      - Keep private key information even if force_password_auth is set in the
        control session's connect() method.
      - Fix parameter handling in X2GoSession.connect().
      - Rewrite passwords that are not string/unicode to an empty string.
      - No Unicode chars in log messages. Eliminated one more in checkhosts.py.
      - Implement two-factor authentication.
      - Compat fix in _paramiko monkey patch module to also work with early
        Paramiko versions.
      - Handle echoing ~/.*shrc files gracefully via SSH client connections. Do
        not allow data injections via ~/.*shrc files. (Fixes: #335).
      - Properly handle (=expand) the "~" character in key filenames.  
(Brought to
        attention by Eldamir on IRC. Thanks!).
      - Differentiate between desktop sharing errors and desktop sharing access
        that gets denied by the other/remote user.
      - Report about found session window / session window retitling in debug
        mode.
      - Fix session window detection when local session manager is the  
i3 session
        manager (which uses _NET_CLIENT_LIST_STACKING instead of
        _NET_CLIENT_LIST).
      - Check for pulse cookie file in old (~/.pulse-cookie) and new
        (~/.config/pulse/cookie) location.
      - Import python-x2go-py3.patch from Fedora. Thanks to Orion!!!
      - Improve setup.py script: make it run with Python3 and older Python2
        versions.
      - Fix tests for two-factor authentication in control session and  
SSH proxy
        code.
      - Fix regression: Make password logins with PyHoca-CLI succeed again.
      - Make channel compression to all authentication methods.
      - Set keepalive on proxy channel.
      - Only use [<host>]:<port> if <port> is not 22.
      - Handle host key checks for hosts that do not have a port specified.
    * debian/source/format:
      + Switch to format 1.0.
    * python-x2go.spec:
      + Ship python-x2go.spec (RPM package definitions) in upstream project.
        (Thanks to the Fedora package maintainers).
      + Clear (Fedora package) changelog.
      + Drop dependency on python-cups.
  .
    [ Orion Poplawski ]
    * debian/control:
      + Drop python-cups from Depends: field. Python CUPS is no dependency if
        Python X2Go. (Fixes: #329).
  .
    [ Kenneth Pedersen ]
    * New upstream version (0.4.0.9):
      - Color depth detection: Stop using win32api.GetSystemMetrics(2)  
which actually
        returns the width of a vertical scroll bar in pixels. Instead,  
create a screen
        display context and query it for the color depth. (Fixes: #330).

Regards,
Mike Gabriel
