    176176This new major release brings a number of new exciting and exclusive
    177177features:
    178 * [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.
    179 * 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]
    180 * [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/ProxyServer Proxy mode] for serving multiple sessions through a single TCP port:

    181181* Support for sharing a TCP port with a server: "{{{--tcp-proxy=HOST:PORT}}}"
    182182Non-xpra traffic will be forwarded to the target of your choice, which
    183183can be very useful for serving both HTTP and xpra from the same port. See #474
    184 * New and extensible [http://xpra.org/trac/wiki/Authentication authentication mechanisms]
     184* New and extensible [/wiki/Authentication authentication mechanisms]

    188188* "remote shadow start" so you can clone an existing remote X11
    189189display to your desktop in one command: "{{{xpra shadow ssh:HOST:0}}}"
    190 * 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]

    191191* {{{ffmpeg}}} and {{{libav}}} are no longer required for {{{vpx}}} and {{{x264}}} support, as we ship a (slower) fallback module.
    192192* improved system tray support and native integration
