8.246. tsclient

Updated tsclient packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Terminal Server Client (tsclient) is a GTK2 front end that makes it easy to use the Remote Desktop Protocol client (rdesktop) and vncviewer utilities.

Bug Fixes

Previously, the tsclient user interface did not offer an option to set the 32-bit color depth in the "Advanced Options" menu for the "Windows Terminal Service" connection type. Consequently, the 32-bit color depth could not be selected even though it was supported on the system, and connection to Windows systems could not be established with more than 16-bit color depth. With this update, the error in the "Advanced Options" menu has been fixed, and the 32-bit color depth option now functions as intended.
Prior to this update, tsclient was not fully compatible with the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). Consequently, tsclient could, under certain circumstances, terminate unexpectedly when the user was connected to a remote system over RDP. This update addresses the problems with RDP compatibility, and tsclient no longer crashes when using RDP for remote connection.
Users of tsclient are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
