iTALC 1.0.6 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!

In cooperation with the Edubuntu-team several serious bugs were discovered and fixed. Especially crashes that existed for ages are now gone, 64-bit-platform compatibility has been significantly improved and iTALC now works properly in Linux-based Thin Client environments. Altogether version 1.0.6 for sure is the most stable iTALC we ever had.

Detailed changes:

- make Backtab (i.e. Shift+Tab) work properly in remote-control (closes #1889307)
- install to /usr/lib/italc/ instead of /usr/lib/
- use new version of miniLZO which fixes various random crashes on 64-bit-platforms and brings general speed-improvements
