7.200. spice-xpi

Updated spice-xpi packages that fix two bugs 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 Fixes

Previously, after enabling a proxy for a SPICE connection opened through the spice-xpi plug-in, the only way the user could unset the proxy was to close or reopen the web page. This update modifies spice-xpi to unset the SPICE_PROXY environment variable when the proxy is unset. As a result, unsetting a proxy for a SPICE connection works as expected.
Prior to this update, certain spice-xpi properties were not recorded in the spice-xpi.log file. These properties were only displayed in the /var/log/messages file. With this update, spice-xpi has been modified to properly log reading or setting the "smartcard", "color-depth", "disable-effects", and "proxy" properties of the spice-xpi browser plug-in. As a result, these events are now visible in spice-xpi.log.
Users of spice-xpi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
