But I suppose that this version will be the maintained for Pharo. Isn't?

I installed RFB-VNC version 1.2 using Universe Browser (enhanced) in a 
clean sq3.10.2-7179web09.02.1 image from Damien Cassou.
This installed RFB-lr.10.
I have tested it with xtightvncviewer version 1.3.9-4 in Debian 
GNU/Linux 5.0 using:

$ xtightvncviewer -encodings "hextile" -depth 8 localhost:0

And it works without a problem.

I think I will use it for a while and if it fails, I will downgrade it 
to RFB-VNC 1.0 from Universes, although I think that it won't be necessary.

Thank you for the info,
Miguel Cobá
