A new desktop input sharing hotness thingy, called "Mango Lassi" (Alternatively known as "GNOME Input Sharing"). Something like a Synergy done right, or an x2x that doesn't suck.

    * Discover desktops to share mouse and keyboards with automatically via Avahi.
    * Fully peer-to-peer. All Mango Lassi instances are both client and server at the same time. Other hosts may enter or leave a running session at any time.
    * No need to open X11 up for the network
    * You have a 50% chance that for your setup you don't need any configuration at all. In the case of the other 50% you might need to swap the order of your screens manually in a simple dialog, because Mango Lassi didn't guess correctly which screen is left and which screen is right.
    * libnotify integration so that it tells you whenever a desktop joins or leaves your session.
    * Shows a nice OSD on your screen when your screen's input is currently being redirected to another screen.
    * Uses all those nifty GNOME APIs, like D-Bus-over-TCP, Avahi, libnotify, Gtk, ...
    * Supports both the X11 clipboard and the selection, supporting all content types, and not just simple text -- i.e. you can copy and paste image data between Gimp on your screens
    * Lot's of bugs and useless debug output, since this is basically the work of just three weekends.
    * Tray icon
