EXodus

eXodus is a display server implementing the X11 display server protocol that was originally developed by White Pine Software. White Pine founders began development in the fall of 1987, and released Version 1.0 in April 1989. Version 1.0 was only built for the Macintosh platform, but versions for Windows, DOS, and NeXT would follow in the coming years.

In 1995, White Pine began a transition away from its line of desktop connectivity products (of which eXodus was the prime revenue contributor) in favor of products incorporating its newly acquired CU-SeeMe videoconferencing technology. This transition was effectively completed in February 2000, when White Pine sold the connectivity product division to Powerlan, Ltd., a software company based in Sydney, Australia. Shortly thereafter, White Pine Software changed its name to CU-SeeMe Networks.
