Fedora Update Notification
2015-09-26 17:32:07.294050

Name        : xpra
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 0.15.6
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : https://www.xpra.org/
Summary     : Remote display server for applications and desktops
Description :
Xpra is "screen for X": it allows you to run X programs, usually on a remote
host, direct their display to your local machine, and then to disconnect from
these programs and reconnect from the same or another machine, without losing
any state. It gives you remote access to individual applications.

Xpra is "rootless" or "seamless": programs you run under it show up on your
desktop as regular programs, managed by your regular window manager.
Sessions can be accessed over SSH, or password protected over plain TCP sockets.
Xpra is usable over reasonably slow links and does its best to adapt to changing
network bandwidth constraints.

Update Information:

This update fixes a critical bug with the Xdummy setup which allows local users
to access the virtual display used for the xpra sessions.  xpra-0.15.6-1.fc21  -
