Log Message:
Update libVNCServer to 0.9.9.

   - Overall changes:
     * Added noVNC HTML5 VNC viewer ( connect 
       to our http server. Pure JavaScript, no Java plugin required anymore! 
(But a
       recent browser...)
     * Added a GTK+ VNC viewer example.

   - LibVNCServer/LibVNCClient:
     * Added support to build for Google Android.
     * Complete IPv6 support in both LibVNCServer and LibVNCClient.

   - LibVNCServer:
     * Split two event-loop related functions out of the rfbProcessEvents() 
       This is required to be able to do proper event loop integration with Qt. 
Idea was
       taken from Vino's libvncserver fork.
     * Added TightPNG ( encoding support. 
Like the
       original Tight encoding, this still uses JPEG, but ZLIB encoded rects 
are encoded
       with PNG here.
     * Added suport for serving VNC sessions through WebSockets
       (, a web technology providing for 
       bi-directional, full-duplex communications channels over a single TCP 
     * Support connections from the Mac OS X built-in VNC client to LibVNCServer
       instances running with no password.
     * Replaced the Tight encoder with a TurboVNC one which is tremendously 
faster in most
       cases, especially with high-color video or 3D workloads.

   - LibVNCClient:
     * Added support to only listen for reverse connections on a specific IP 
     * Support for using OpenSSL instead of GnuTLS. This could come in handy on 
       devices where only this TLS implementation is available.
     * Added support to connect to UltraVNC Single Click servers.
