* Wed Mar 13 2019 Tuukka Pasanen <>
- Updated to version 0.9.16 which is now part of libvncserver as in
  page there is sentence
  x11vnc is a contributed program to the LibVNCServer project at or
  * Build fixes.
  * Misc. documentation fixes.
  * Misc. buffer overflow and memleak fixes.
  * Support for OpenSSL 1.1.0.
  * Fix for Debian bug #672435.
  * Added support for the X Composite Extension. For subwindow/appshare
    modes this allows sharing the respective window/app when it
    is partially or completely off-screen as XComposite renders
    the window contents to an off-screen buffer. Before, updating
    of the window contents would stop once it went even partially
  * Added XInput 2 multi-pointer support which allows multiple clients
    to view and control a single shared screen, all having their
    own mouse pointers and keyboard foci. For in-depth info, read,
    especially section 5.1.
    Added some support for running under Wayland via the deskshot utility
    found in the misc/ subdirectory.
