VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote
display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop'
environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from
anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine
SSVNC is two things:
* An enhanced version of the TightVNC client with support for more
encodings and color modes, support for x11vnc and UltraVNC
extensions, dynamic screen resizing, an improved popup menu, etc.
* A GUI that helps set up an SSL (using stunnel) or SSH tunnel to
connect to the VNC server through, as well as forwarding of ports for
audio (esound/aRts), SMB, CUPS etc.

ssvnc (1.0.29-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Also get CPPFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags. Pass it as EXTRA_DEFINES to
2011-11-10 - Magnus Holmgren <>
ssvnc (1.0.29-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Install ReleaseNotes as upstream changelog file.
* Simply build-depend on libjpeg-dev instead of libjpeg62-dev |
libjpeg-dev (Closes: #644808).
* Install a symlink in /usr/bin instead of including the main vncviewer
binary twice in the package.
* Add build-arch and build-indep targets to debian/rules.
* nostrip.patch: Remove strip command from the Makefile, allowing
DEB_BUILD_OPTONS=nostrip to work.
* Get CFLAGS and LDFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags.
* buildflags.patch: Pass CFLAGS and LDFLAGS through via ./Makefile as
CDEBUGFLAGS and LOCAL_LDFLAGS to vnc_unixsrc/*/Makefile. This results
in -fno-strict-aliasing (added by xmkmf by default) being dropped, but
that doesn't seem to cause any problems.
* format-security.patch: Fix some flaws uncovered by -Wformat-security.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2.
2011-02-06 - Magnus Holmgren <>
ssvnc (1.0.28-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (Closes: #592873, "Connection from UVNC
Single-Click does not start vncviewer when -acceptpopups is set").
* Convert to source format 3.0 (quilt), changing /bin/sh into /bin/bash
(see below) in the install target instead.
* debian/copyright: Update years of copyright; remove notice that the
UltraVNC DSM helper module is not included (which it is since
* Remove redundant bash dependency; bash isn't going to be non-essential
any time soon.
* Up Standards-Version to 3.9.1.
2010-05-23 - Magnus Holmgren <>
ssvnc (1.0.27-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* bashisms.dpatch: Don't try to fix all bashisms; instead change /bin/sh
to /bin/bash and depend on bash, which is small in this context.
2010-02-06 - Magnus Holmgren <>
ssvnc (1.0.25-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* confusing_-h.dpatch and bashisms.dpatch: adjusted.
2009-10-31 - Magnus Holmgren <>
ssvnc (1.0.24-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* ssvnc -help now prints a help message instead of passing -help to the
tcl interpreter.
* confusing_-h.dpatch (new): Improve upstream's handling of -help a bit
(Closes: 544250).
* ultraftp_path.dpach (new): Use hardcoded (and correct for this
package) path to ultraftp.jar if SSVNC_ULTRA_FTP_JAR is unset, so that
file transfers work even if ssvncviewer is executed directly.
* bashisms.dpatch (new): Fix most bashisms (all that matter).
* Drop no_openssl.dpatch and build ultravnc_dsm_helper; OpenSSL
exception has been granted. Build-depend on libssl-dev.
* Promote stunnel4 from Recommends to Depends (Closes: #553411), depend
directly on openssl, depend on tk instead of tk8.4, and tweak java
* Add README.source.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3.
2009-08-01 - Magnus Holmgren <>
ssvnc (1.0.23-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Initial release (Closes: #504134).
