These are the two bugs I know:

gnome-remote-desktop is technically later than tsclient but if you look
at the changelog for it you see that very little was done to it after
tsclient was imported.

Barring a Canadian translation...  Nothing has been done with the whole
suite for five months.  Too bad since some of the features, like easily
giving the user the ability to allow someone else to connect to their
desktop, is a great idea.
