    2013-10-22 - sndirsch@suse.com - vncserver script requires xdpyinfo (bnc#846953)

    2013-07-23 - msrb@suse.com - Remove xinetd service for VNC. (Moved to xorg-x11-Xvnc.) (bnc#800959)

    2010-09-19 - vuntz@opensuse.org - Update to version 1.3.10: + Unix Server: - Applied fixes for 64-bit Linux issues. - Made the vncserver script read configuration from files (system-wide /etc/tightvncserver.conf and user-specific $HOME/.vnc/tightvncserver.conf). + All viewers: - Allow configuring JPEG quality level regardless of the preferred encoding set. This makes sense because TightVNC Servers can transmit video data as JPEG even if Tight is not the preferred encoding. + Other minor improvements and bugfixes. - Rebase vncserver.patch to apply without fuzz. - Install tightvncserver.conf to /etc. - Remove Xvnc manpage, since we do not ship Xvnc here.
