            - Fixed reconnection when an interrupt signal occurs (Ctrl-C).
            - WPS class: On the Redirection/Sound page of the settings
              notebook the "Audio output" radio button was always set to
              "Local" - fixed.
            - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub (3.0.0 beta).

2023-04-24  - WPS class: changes to parse the new log line format.
              In recent builds, due to the new format, the window position was
              not saved and the "Diconnect" item of the class pop-up menu was
              not available. Fixed.
            - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub.

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.

              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

              without terminating remote applications.
            - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub.

2020-10-02  - Support for AltGr key on German keyboard. Windows systems use the

              GpiQueryBitmapHandle, GpiQueryBitmapInfoHeader and
              GpiSetBitmapBits.

2020-08-14  - Serialization of GpiQueryBitmapHandle, GpiQueryBitmapInfoHeader
              and GpiSetBitmapBits functions calls with a mutex semaphore. It
              looks like it helps to get rid of the trap in the PMMERGE.DLL
              module.
            - Synchronized with latest sources from GitHub (ver. 2.2.0).

              verification of new and changed certificates, connection progress
              window.
            - The name of the executable file is changed to ofreerdp.exe. 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.

              Perfomance page. New option "Do not check RDP order

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.

              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 no longer works with the latest source codes. Now the
              connection will be broken by the server, as it usually happens in
              FreeRDP on other platforms.
            - WPS class: The negative coordinates of the window were
