In squeak universes there are two options for a VNC server:

- RemoteFrameBuffer version 34:
Category: Network

where RFB-ikp.3.mcz if from Ian Piumarta from 2007-02-20 06:12:40

- RFB-VNC 1.0:

Downloads from: http://www.squeaksource.com/RFB/RFB-ikp.3.mcz
Homepage: http://www.squeaksource.com/RFB

this is the same monticello from RemoteFrameBuffer version 34, so I
suppose this is just a repackaging with a more meaningful name.

- RFB-VNC 1.2
Maintained by: ikp
Downloads from: http://source.lukas-renggli.ch/unsorted/RFB-lr.10.mcz
Homepage: http://www.squeaksource.com/RFB

Although this version has the same homepage that the version 1.0, it
specifies also Lukas' site. From Lukas squeaksource:

Filename:	RFB-lr.10.mcz
Author:	Lukas Renggli
Timestamp:	21 December 2008 10:23:08 am
UUID:	491315b5-d566-4240-8a15-55be3a27619a
Ancestors:	RFB-lr.9.mcz
Message:	- made it work in the latest pharo
Downloads:	Web: 16
Squeak: 2

So, according to this, the RFB-VNC 1.2 is the version that is and will
be (at least for pharo will be) maintained.

Lukas, is this correct? Should I use RFB-VNC 1.2?
