New website!

LibVNCServer/LibVNCClient have a new website: same place

x11vnc 0.6.1 released

The first official version of x11vnc was launched! It has come a long way since being just one of the examples of LibVNCServer... A fully fledged, tweakable high-performance VNC server for existing X11 sessions, it is not only faster and more compact than x0rfbserver, but it is also written in portable C, avoiding C++.
