+* LibVNCServer (C) 2001 Johannes E. Schindelin <>
+is based on
+* Original OSXvnc (C) 2001 Dan McGuirk <>,
+which in turn is based on
+* Original Xvnc (C) 1999 AT&T Laboratories Cambridge.
+Lots of improvements of this library are thanks to
+* TightVNC (C) 2000-2003 Const Kaplinsky
+The ZRLE compression scheme is from
+* RealVNC (James "Wez" Weatherall, who helped also with regions)
+The good folks from
+* KRFB (I think it was Tim Jansen)
+helped also a lot (some *big* bugs!).
+Karl Runge provided an x11vnc, which is a much, much improved version of my
+original proof-of-concept. It really deserves to replace the old version,
+as it is a state-of-the-art, fast and usable program by now!
+Occasional important patches were sent by (in order I found the names in my
+archives and please don't beat me, if I forgot you, but just send me an
+email!): Akira Hatakeyama, Karl J. Runge, Justin "Zippy" Dearing,
+Oliver Mihatsch, Greg Sternberg, Werner Hofer, Giampiero Giancipoli,
+Glenn Mabutt, Paul Kreiner.
+Probably I forgot quite a few people sending a patch here and there, which
+really made a difference. Without those, some obscure bugs still would
+be unfound.
+A hearty unthanks goes to Michael and Erick, who provided me with nothing
+but hollow words. Finally I got that configure and install working, but
+it would have been so much better for them not just to complain, but also
+help. As you showed me real egoism, you are the main reasons I am not
+working one dot to make this library less than GPL, so that nobody ever
+can make profit of my and others work without giving something back to me
+and others.
+Speaking of hollow words, another hearty unthanks goes to Sam, who thought
+he could let me work for him, not paying me in any way.
