History of changes
2022-12-16 - Fixed PM freezing during connection. - Measures have been taken to clean up artifacts on the screen after closing the remote application windows. Perhaps this is not enough... - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2022-12-08 - All text conversions are done through the icu library. - WPS class, msoffice.cmd: changes for the new syntax of command line switches. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2022-01-12 - Compiled with urbdrc channel support (redirect USB devices). See /usb switch. Requires libusb1.dll. Not tested! - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2021-04-20 - Persistent attempts to open an audio device if it was captured by another process at the start of playback. - WPS class: When launching remote applications, the command line switch +offscreen-cache is specified. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2021-04-14 - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. - Porting new sections of the winpr library and channels subsystem code. - Calculation of audio playback delay. 2021-01-28 - Improved stability in audio output. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2020-10-28 - An experimental feature: "*" can be specified as the name of the remote application to connect to the server without launching any application. - The ability to launch remote applications in an existing session of the remote application. See the "Freerdp.exe for OS/2 specific features" chapter of the README.os2 file. - WPS class: The "Disconnect" command of the context menu of the WPS object. It can be used, for example, to disconnect a session without terminating remote applications. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2020-10-02 - Support for AltGr key on German keyboard. Windows systems use the left CTRL scan code together with the right ALT scan code to indicate the AltGr key on a German keyboard. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2020-09-01 - Optimized the creation of the system bitmap in GPI mode. 2020-08-19 - Fixed some confusion with audio buffers. - Fixed problem with data transmission to the system (Gpi) for building bitmaps. 2020-08-16 - A premature free memory was found. This caused a crash in the PMMERGE.DLL module. Removed serialization of function calls GpiQueryBitmapHandle, GpiQueryBitmapInfoHeader and GpiSetBitmapBits. 2020-08-14 - Serialization of GpiQueryBitmapHandle, GpiQueryBitmapInfoHeader and GpiSetBitmapBits functions calls with a mutex semaphore.

Now we can have separate * .xqs files for the dynamic library and the executable file. - WPS class: the credential request dialog and connection progress window has been removed since it is implemented in ofreerdp.exe. - WPS class: the new page of the properties notebook: Connection / Gateway (page 2 of 2). - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2020-03-17 - During the dynamic creation of icons in the remote application mode, the program crashed. Fixed (I hope). - WPS class: Option "RDP8 graphics pipeline" has been moved to the Perfomance page. New option "Do not check RDP order (/relax-order-checks)" on the protocol page. 2020-03-13 - Fixed a bug due to which the window of the remote application usually collapsed when increasing the size with the mouse. - Checking the size of the data provided in platform-dependent code to create a bitmap image. 2020-03-11 - The mp3lame library is no longer used for resampling. - Added support for some channels that were previously missing. - Updated environment in which the project is built. Used GCC 9.2 compiler. Requires a pthr01.dll (pthread library) file no older than (bldlevel): Vendor: bww bitwise works GmbH Revision: 0.01.1 Date/Time: 2020-01-06 11:52:55 Build Machine: ECS26154618 File Version: 0.1 Description: pthread implementation for OS/2 - More precise use of support (compilation options) for SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3 and stack alignment for various source files. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2020-02-11 - WPS class: The window position is correctly calculated for any XPager virtual desktop. - Sound output changed for compatibility with the current platform-independent code. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2019-11-11 - Optimized processing and display of bitmaps. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2019-10-23 - Fixed a bug due to which the contents of the RemoteApp windows were shifted up one line. - Changed RemoteApp window ordering control in the stack. - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub. 2019-10-03 - Support for RDP8 graphics pipeline (see command line options /gfx and /gfx-h264). Not tested with remote applications. Check if RDP8, RFX and GFX features are activated on the server, sometimes they are not: gpedit.msc 'Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host'. - This build does not require a kernel and processor supporting AVX. - WPS class: Option "Asynchronous update"on page "Protocol" removed. New option "RDP8 graphics pipeline" added. - WPS class: Setup string, option PROTOCOL, new items: OLDLICENSE and GFX.
