New version 7.0 of all X Window proxy products and streamlined products portfolio

2005-08-16

After more than one year of continuous improvement the giant step from version 6.07 to 7.0 is justified.

For instance, new transport modules further increase the throughput of the X Window proxies.

The Pose products for recording and playback of X Window sessions were enhanced by comprehensive multimedia features. They allow to capture, transport, store, and replay audio, video, or arbitrary binary data streams simultaneously and synchronously to the Pose data stream. Now it is possible to convert a Pose recording into any video format by use of an external video codec.

Further improvements make fast positioning during playback easier and provide for direct control of the software by other programs.

The configuration and control programs of XmetaX, XposeXplay, and XposeXrecord were enhanced by new GUIs.

The new pricing provides low entry prices for XbigX (now a cheap but more versatile substitute of XINERAMA) and XmetaX.

The products XpanX as well as XvarioX, XkeymapX, and XtranslucentX are discontinued, because their functionalities are covered by XbigX and XmetaX, respectively. The streamlined product portfolio provides for easy selection of the product exactly meeting the requirements:

XbigX maps arbitrary large virtual display areas - so-called meta screens - on one or more real screens of an X Window server. The dimensions of the screens do not matter. Screens may overlap or leave gaps. The visible areas may be arbitrarily positioned on the virtual area by moving the mouse pointer.

XmetaX maps arbitrary large virtual display areas - so-called meta screens - on one or more real screens of one or multiple X Window servers or even on X Window windows. The dimensions of the screens do not matter. Screens may overlap or leave gaps. The visible areas may be arbitrarily positioned on the virtual area by moving the mouse pointer. This base functionality can be enhanced by options, each implementing a certain functionality like zooming, rotating, beaming or recording an X Window session or even providing a failsafe X Window server.

XposeXrecord is used for exactly and totally recording for later or simultaneous playback of X Window sessions or individual applications, optionally together with audio, video, or arbitrary binary data streams.

XposeXplay is used for playback of files recorded by XposeXrecord or XmetaX or for simultaneous playback. The recording may be converted to video formats, too.

XcontrolX receives all input events from one X Window server, the master, and may decide to send the events to one of several other X Window servers, the slaves. At any time, there is only one mouse pointer visible, unless configured otherwise. The position of the visible mouse pointer determines the target of the input events. The mouse pointer is warped on one of the other screens by touching the screen border or by pressing a specified hot key combination.
