Ok folks, after seeing so many complaints about bugs, crashes, features not
working in the Windows version of VNC 3.3.6, I just have to speak up.
I took some time last year going through the various flavors of VNC trying
to settle on one Windows version to work on. I finally decided on RealVNC
mainly because it's been ported to the most platforms. So, I spent several
months fixing bugs (including the server crash bug) and making speed
improvements. I've finally gotten it to a point where I'm happy with using
it in a production enviroment and where I feel it competes performance-wise
with Remote Administrator. It even out-performs UltraVNC on a LAN in my
My question is: Now what?
I don't want to release it as RealVNC 3.3.7 or 3.3.6a or 3.3.6whatever since
that's not my perogative and I have nothing to do with RealVNC, I DON"T want
to release it as MyCompanyName VNC ver.1.0 because I don't want to support
it or answer emails about it, but I still want everybody to benefit from the
improvements and fixes I made. I got a note back from RealVNC saying they
would take a look at it for possibly including it in a future release, but
that could be months from now.
So, does anyone have any suggestions?
