    v15 v16  
    2121* Remote client logging (#786): forwards the client's log messages to the server (enabled by default with OSX and MS Windows clients, but disabled in the default server configuration)
    2222* Window management (#775 and many other tickets): still working towards a more standards compliant window manager implementation
    23 * the OSX build is now automated using modulesets based on [http://www.gtk.org/download/macos.php gtk-osx]'s + [https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Jhbuild jhbuild], so it is now much easier to get going - many thanks to Stephen Gauthier
     23* the OSX build is now automated using modulesets (#533) based on [http://www.gtk.org/download/macos.php gtk-osx]'s + [https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Jhbuild jhbuild], so it is now much easier to get going and will allow us to move to 64-bit more easily (#840) - many thanks to Stephen Gauthier
    2424* Python 3 support (#640 - ongoing): you can now build the xpra client for either Python 2.x or Python 3, the RPM packaging has been updated accordingly. (this remains a work in progress, especially on MS Windows and OSX)
    25 * Older platforms have been dropped (you should continue to use the 0.14.x branch for those):
     25* Older platforms have been dropped (you should continue to use the 0.14.x LTS branch for those):
    2626 * centos 5.x because of its older Python 2.4
    27  * Ubuntu Precise and Debian Wheezy: we no longer support those versions of libav (though it is still possible to build and run xpra without it)
     27 * Ubuntu Precise and Debian Wheezy because we no longer support their version of libav (though it is still possible to build and run xpra without it)
    2828* Sound is now handled out of process, which makes it more reliable (#669 fixes some crashes with the clipboard) and less susceptible to latency jitters in the main process (and we should have audio-video synchronization in the next release: #839)
    2929* Picture encoding improvements, ie: multi-delta regions (#756 minimizes the bandwidth used by browsers unnecessarily repainting the screen)
