.NET VNC Viewer 1.0.1.17 Released

.NET VNC Viewer is a VNC viewer written entirely in C#. It is binary compatible with Smartphones, Pocket PCs and Windows desktops (with .NET Compact Framework or .NET Framework). I write this mainly because other VNC viewers on Pocket PC do not do full screen and screen rotation.

-Implemented listen mode.
-Added an option for Smartphone users to turn off mouse acceleration.
-Added an option for Smartphone users to choose the mouse speed after turning off mouse acceleration.

Hi-Res (640x480) Support Added to .NET VNC Viewer 1.0.0

I patched .NET VNC Viewer 1.0.0 to utilize hi-res (640x480) screens of some Windows Mobile 2003 SE devices. Get a copy at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=128549 and try it out if you have one of those lovely Pocket PCs. Please note that there is no custom logic to detect a hi-res screen, so the UI may not be pretty but it should work (at least on my emulator it does).
