iTALC 1.0.10 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 2000/XP and it even can be used transparently in mixed environments!

Version 1.0.10 is a maintainance release of the 1.0.x series. It fixes lots of bugs and features an improved user interface. Furthermore incompatibilities with recent Linux systems, recent versions of autotools and recent version of Qt have been fixed.
