8.207. spice-xpi

Updated spice-xpi packages that fix one bug and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The spice-xpi packages provide the Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) extension for Mozilla that allows the SPICE client to be used from a web browser.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the spice-xpi browser plug-in did not remove the /tmp/spicec-XXXXXX/spice-foreign socket and the /tmp/spicec-XXXXXX/ directory, so they were still present after client had exited. This bug has been fixed, and the browser plug-in now removes the above mentioned file and directory after client exits.


Proxy support for SPICE connection has been added to the spice-xpi browser plug-in. With this update, spice-xpi is now able to pass the proxy setting to the SPICE client it spawns, for example, when opening a console from the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager portal.
Users of spice-xpi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug and add this enhancement. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
