TigerVNC 1.11.0

TigerVNC 1.11.0 is now available. This is a new major release of TigerVNC, but also a security release. Users that rely on the TLS feature in the viewers are recommended to upgrade as soon as possible.

Lots of changes have been made since the last release, but the highlights are:

  • A security issue has been fixed in how the viewers handle TLS certificate exceptions
  • vncserver has gotten a major redesign to be compatible with modern distributions
  • The native viewer now has touch gestures to handle certain mouse actions (e.g. scroll wheel)
  • Middle mouse button emulation in the native viewer, for devices with only two mouse buttons
  • The Java viewer now supports Java 9+, but also now requires Java 8+
  • Support for alpha cursors in the Java viewer (a feature already supported in the native viewer)
  • The password and username can now be specified via the environment for the native viewer
  • Support for building Xvnc/libvnc.so with Xorg 1.20.7+ and deprecate support for Xorg older than 1.16
  • The official builds have been fixed to work on the upcoming macOS 11
  • The Windows server (WinVNC) is now packaged separately as it is unmaintained and buggy

Binaries are available from bintray:
