XLitePro Version 1.4 - XServer for windows

Date: 3 December 2004

Labtam is pleased to present a new software update for XLitePro now Version 1.4. This is the third major release for 2004.

Integrating the Microsoft Windows and X-Window System environments XLitePro is an inexpensive but powerful and effective way to transform a standard PC into a fully functional X-terminal.

Included in the package are the X-Window System, TCP/IP, TFTP and TELNET.

New Features on this release include

The following enhancements have been made

1. Installation:
- The InstallShield X is used in the installation procedure. 16-bit executables are not used from this version

2. Startup:
- corrected processing of the XServer DynamicDisplayNumber generation mode

3. Telnet:
- improved the viewing of the terminal output buffer to provide correct work when terminal output is in progress
- provided more correct "rubber rect" drawing/processing

4. XServer:
- the X11R6.6 sources are utilized
- implemented the "GLX_PixelFormat=..." manual setting into OPENGL32 ChoosePixelFormat() system call to decrease the unexpected 100-sec delay (some especial CAD-oriented NVIDIA drivers show such an incorrect behaviour)
- implemented the "TraceFontsRequests=..." KbdMacros to dynamically change the XServer's TraceFontsRequests mode
- implemented more correct naming/copying/renaming of the "xserver[N].out" file
- renovated the "rgb.txt" file to satisfy some new RGB color names requests

The following bugs have been fixed

1. XServer:
- XServer/Single+TWEAKui: suppressed unnecessary internal SetActiveHwnd calls
- fixed an incorrect FontServer reconnection (with 100% CPU usage)

Undocumented Features

1. Comsetup:
- implemented the "Auto-start XwpPeg Package Watcher" setting to provide the corresponding control of the XwpPeg facility

2. Startup:
- to input any text into the command line before its executing, the "$(INPUTLIP)" macros can be used. E.g., if the "Command" field contains the following line: "xterm -display $(INPUTLIP):0" then you will be prompted to input a text string (an IP address is assumed). If you enter "", then the resulting command line will be: xterm -display

3. XServer:
- the "DontUse_MOTIF_WM_HINTS=1" line can be inserted into the "[XSERVERdeb]" section of the xwp.ini file to prevent from processing the "_MOTIF_WM_HINTS" windows property
- the "DontCheckWM_SIZE_HINTSinc=1" line can be inserted into the "[XSERVERdeb]" section of the xwp.ini file to prevent from processing the "WM_SIZE_HINTS" windows property
- the "MyIP=?" line can be inserted into the "[NETWORK]" section of the xwp.ini file to allow the manual input of local IP address when XServer will be started
- the following options are applicable when the XServer's PC has more than one IP address. In this case, XServer will prompt you to choose one of them. The "SocketCreate_INADDR=." line can be inserted into the "[XDMCP]" section of the xwp.ini file to communicate with the XDMCP daemon via the IP address chosen. The "SocketCreate_INADDR=IP" assignment can be made to use the IP address specified to communicate with the XDMCP daemon (e.g. "SocketCreate_INADDR=")

Known problems:

1. Uninstallation:
- the uninstallation procedure does not remove components which were installed in additional (non-first) installation sessions. Such additional components should be removed manually

2. Lpd:
- printers on the remote MS Windows NT 4 hosts are unavailable from the local host under MS Windows NT4

3. XServer:
- drawing partial arcs can be very slow
- the CDE/XDMCP of the HP-UX host can provide infinite waiting for connection. To avoid this, the new "HP" fonts alias directory should be included into the XServer FontPath
- the "Forced Backing Store" setting can provide wrong screen re-displaying in some cases (e.g., Netscape scrolling)
