B.87. spice-client

An enhanced spice-client package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) is a remote display protocol designed for virtual environments. SPICE users can view a virtualized desktop or server from the local system or any system with network access to the server. SPICE is available for a variety of machine architectures and operating systems. SPICE is used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for viewing virtualized guests running on the KVM hypervisor or on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisors. The spice-client package provides the client side of the SPICE protocol.
This update rebases spice-client to the 0.6.3 version. It is compatible with future spice protocol changes, it adds copy and paste support between guest and client (when used together with an updated agent), and supports fullscreen mode under window-managers other then the default Gnome window manager metacity (especially compiz and kde are now also supported).
All users requiring spice-client are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
