What features are you looking for specifically in OSXvnc server and/or
Chicken of The VNC as the client?
Since both of these are based on earlier versions of VNC and have
followed their own development path it's a little unclear to say which
"version" they are relative to RealVNC. They have had some of the
features of RealVNC's version 4 since before RealVNC did, but are
lacking other features and some don't even seem to make sense "eg
Windows Authentication for OSXvnc".
The next release of OSXvnc will bring it into compliance with the
current RFB spec (V 3.8) which doesn't incorporate all of the changes
that comprise RealVNC 4 but it gets it closer.
