FedoraFedora 24 and 251.0missing critical updates, you may want to add rpmfusion's xpra-codecs-freeworld package to get all the codecs
UbuntuTrusty aka 14.040.12.3not a single fix applied in 3 years, dangerous
UbuntuXenial aka 16.040.15.816 months without any fixes, based on a dead branch
DebianJessie0.14.10Awful: 2.5 years and 27 stable updates missing!
Version no longer supported, includes known bugs, crashes and serious security vulnerabilities - dangerous!
DebianJessie-backports0.17.6Backports an EOL version!?
DebianStretch0.17.6EOL version, known bugs and security vulnerabilities - do not use
GentooStable 1.0.3Not too bad: 1 minor update behind
GentooTesting 1.0.4Good: up to date!
Arch 2.0Great: most up to date

To see the fixes that are missing, follow the "Commit log" links for each branch on the "Release Notes" section of the version / fixes page.

A great explanation of the Debian / Ubuntu packaging mess can be found here: Matthew Garrett: There's more than one way to exploit the commons.
