Previously, the xrandr options --scale and -- transform caused a segmentation fault, because these options required an --output field but the utility didn't validate the command line properly check for existing output. With this update, xrandr displays a message informing that the --scale and -- transform options also require the --output option.
Previously, xrandr wrongly assumed that a gamma ramp value of zero was a failure. When VNC was enabled, xrandr returned a zero value. With this update, xrandr is modified to allow for a gamma ramp value of zero. Now xrandr no longer fails when running VNC.
All users of xorg-x11-server-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
