     9(Taken from the [http://lists.devloop.org.uk/pipermail/shifter-users/2014-January/000792.html release announcement]:)
     10[[BR]]
     11This new major release brings a number of new exciting and exclusive
     12features:
     13* [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/Encodings/nvenc NVENC] support for hardware accelerated h264 encoding on Nvidia cards, this can compress video frames [http://xpra.org/stats/NVENC/ much faster] than your CPU ever will, which means that screen updates can get to your client very quickly. xpra is the first open source software to support NVENC.
     14* Support for [/wiki/CSC/OpenCL OpenCL] and [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/CSC/NVCUDA CUDA] acceleration of [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/CSC colourspace conversion]
     15* [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/ProxyServer Proxy mode] for serving multiple sessions through a single TCP port:
     16* Support for sharing a TCP port with a server: "{{{--tcp-proxy=HOST:PORT}}}"
     17Non-xpra traffic will be forwarded to the target of your choice, which
     18can be very useful for serving both HTTP and xpra from the same port. See #474
     19* New and extensible [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/Authentication authentication mechanisms]
     20* mDNS support: your xpra sessions will be advertised unless you
     21specify the switch "{{{--no-mdns}}}"
     22* support for transparency with OpenGL windows and with 8-bit PNG modes
     23* "remote shadow start" so you can clone an existing remote X11
     24display to your desktop in one command: "{{{xpra shadow ssh:HOST:0}}}"
     25* Support for faster [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/PacketEncoding#lz4vszlib lz4 compression] which can make a [http://xpra.org/stats/lz4/ significant improvement in latency] with RGB encoding, and a [http://xpra.org/stats/bencode/ faster Cython bencoder]
     26* {{{ffmpeg}}} and {{{libav}}} are no longer required for {{{vpx}}} and {{{x264}}} support, as we ship a (slower) fallback module.
     27* improved system tray support and native integration
     28* stricter and safer value parsing
     29* more detailed status information via UI and "xpra info"
     30* experimental HTML5 client (#473)
     31* non xpra clients are rejected with a more friendly response
     32* {{{libvpx 1.3}}} and {{{ffmpeg 2.1.3}}} for OSX, MS Windows and static builds
     33
     34And the usual cleanups and refactorings to make the code easier to
     35work on. The wiki has been updated and has quite a few new pages too.
     36
     37The development for version 0.12 is about to start, and we already
     38have [http://xpra.org/trac/milestone/0.12 quite a few tickets queued up].
     39But if you have requests or killer features you would like to see
     40added, do let us know.
