iTALC 1.0.8 released

iTALC is a use- and powerful didactical tool which lets you view and control computers in your labs and interact with students in a modern way. It supports Linux and Windows NT/2000/XP and it even can be used transparently in mixed environments!

iTALC 1.0.8 fixes various bugs found in 1.0.7 and has an improved user-interface. Please note that you've to update both client- and master-computers in order to make the demo-mode work properly!

Detailed changes:

- disabled MMX-optimized image-scaler on x86_64 as it's currently buggy
- added zoom-feature: holding mouse-button on a client-window makes it zoom
- under win32: disable screen-saver while demo is running or screen is locked
- display hostname in client-windows when "show user" is not checked
- removed support-tab and added a button in toolbar instead
- improved sidebar
- visibility of individual toolbar-buttons can be configured via the toolbar-contextmenu
- fixed several issues with scaling in remote-control-window
- always try to run demo-server on default-port 5858 to allow easier and more secure firewall-configuration
- drag'n drop support in classroom manager
- fixed confirmation-dialog when closing setup-window via Alt+F4/close-button
- added timeout-recognition in isdConnection::readFromServer()-function which makes iTALC-master not hang when quitting if a connection is somehow blocked
- updated italc.spec.in
- the name-field of a client is now optional - if you do not specify it, the hostname/IP is used for displaying the client's name
- network-interface for demo-modes doesn't need to be configured anymore - it's auto-detected by clients
- improved stability of demo-server
