    v59 v60  
    2222* Which version shall I be using?
    2323Please always used the latest released version, you can see the last revision tagged [http://xpra.org/svn/Xpra/tags/ here], or look for the last source release [/src/ here].
    24 * I have version 0.0.7.x or version 0.0.6 installed and I can't connect.
     24* I have version 0.3.x or version 0.0.6 installed and I can't connect.
    2525Those are far too old. Use a supported version.
    2626* Should I use the version shipped with my Linux distribution?
    2727It depends, [/wiki/Packaging#DistributionPackages generally not].
    2828* Which versions are supported? Which ones are compatible with which versions?
    29 Current versions are compatible with versions going back to v0.5.0. The 0.11.x branch is compatible as far back as version 0.3.11.
    30 '''However''', just because it is possible to connect does not mean that you should be using outdated versions. Outdated versions contain known bugs and vulnerabilities.
     29The current release (0.14.x) is compatible with versions going back to v0.7.8.
     30'''However''', just because it is possible to connect does not mean that you should be using an outdated version. Outdated versions contain known bugs and vulnerabilities.
    3131* What is the license?
    3232[http://xpra.org/trac/browser/xpra/trunk/src/COPYING GPLv2+]

    4545Generally yes, as long as the virtual display server (vfb) has not crashed.
    4646If the xpra server is completely gone, you can start a new one with "{{{xpra start --use-display}}}" to re-use the existing display. If it is still running but unresponsive, you should kill it first (and use {{{kill -9}}} to prevent the tear down code from also stopping the vfb display)
     47* Why does Xpra use so much of my CPU?
     48If you have sound forwarding enabled, then this will consume a fair amount of CPU, whether sound is being played or not. Turn if off if you don't need it.
     49Some applications will also repaint their windows unnecessarily, if you don't use them, try minimizing the window.
    4750* I have keyboard problems
