No, its not yet.

You can login as the user and shadow it via VNC.

This works properly since 0.7.2 as nxpasswd is included then into distribution.

For a full scale shadowing that would also allow other users to shadow sessions more work would be needed.

At the moment I don't have any "free" resources free to do that. However if you need it _now_, you could buy some commercial support from me for adding that feature. The alternative is to just wait until it is done :-).

Best Wishes and have a nice day,
