This is a non-backwards compatible change in a stable release, why?

There is no systray for Synergy now, it can only be configured on the command-line or in config files (and that makes it harder to stop/start the processes, and to debug connection logs).

It is no longer possible to use a mouse & keyboard attached to a client machine, it seems that synergy eats the input events, so you can only use the mouse & keyboard attached to the server. This is a major regression.

This update is a major version bump that removes significant user-facing features and breaks compatibility with existing systems, all of which in violation of Fedora's Updates Policy for stable releases.
