This is not weird at all. Bug fixes and new features were tested during
the K12LTSP 5.0 beta cycle. Once said fixes/features were proven, they
were accepted by the up-stream LTSP project and included in their next
update. What is so weird about that?

and I had it all working (FL_TeacherTool.....control, monitor....the
works) at NELS....we just followed the how-to in your documentation.  Paul
Flint of the Edubuntu project was quite impressed with it....in fact it
was a huge selling point for K12LTSP.  Are you saying it shouldn't have
worked?  (we did this June 19th)  It did work and I have lots of
witnesses.  It worked on whatever beta was current the week before the
19th and it was indeed K12LTSP 5 as I was demoing the local devices thing
as well.   Hmmmm.....

This update contains several minor bug fixes including the updated
lbuscd, which fixes the "2nd login" problem for local device access.

In addition, we've created an ISO image of the full set of packages,
for those who would like to download a single file.

Take a look at http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LTSP-42 for
more information.

From the wiki:
   *  VNC - Virtual Network Client
         o Added the VNC module for the Xserver for remote desktop

Great news Jim! Thanks for accepting Eric's build patch for the Xvnc
module. This should mean that the control and broadcast feature of
Fl_TeacherTool should work with any LTSP setup now. :)

Wondering if K12LTSP 5.0 will ship with this updated version of LTSP?
