    v29 v30  
    1111* gtk/pygtk versions: similar to Python, older versions (ie: 2.17 and older) can cause problems, see: r2863, r2706, r2705, r1498, r555, r554.
    1212* client applications: it is important to test a wide range of client applications, using a wide variety of UI toolkits and languages: gtk, qt/kde, wx, Java (see #162), etc.. Each can uncover subtle bugs. Then there are specific applications that are known to cause problems because of the way the interact with the X11 server: wine applications?, VMWare? (#199), Firefox? (#220, #158, #96), {{{gtkperf -a}}} is very good at triggering races in window setup/cleanup, etc. Also, newer versions of specific target applications may change the behaviour of the application in ways which have a significant impact on xpra compression/quality.
    13 * backwards compatibility with old versions: we try to keep backwards compatibility with older versions as much as possible, though some features may not be available. Occasionally we will drop compatibility (ie: #57) to allow the code to move on from old crufty workarounds. At present, all versions from 0.7.8 onwards should be able to connect, both as client and server.

    1414* unusual setups: although these may not be optimal, people still expect this to work - and it should! Again, the errors that this uncovers may well help in other areas. Things like: running xpra nested (#210), running xpra from "{{{ssh -X}}}" / "{{{ssh -Y}}}" (#207, #3)
    1515* platform specific quirks: OSX problems (#249), platforms with static builds of the x264 and vpx libraries or those where the dynamic libraries are bundled in a binary image (#103): MS Windows, OSX, CentOS 5.x, CentOS 6.x, Debian Squeeze, Ubuntu Lucid)
