Software Update: PuTTY 0.65 Beta

A new release of PuTTY has become available and as usual it is offered as beta. PuTTY is one of the most popular telnet and ssh clients, which makes it possible to remotely manage a computer over a secure connection. Originally, the program was only available for Windows, but now there are also clients for the various Unix platforms. The changelog for version 0.65 can be found below.

PuTTY 0.65 released, containing bug fixes

PuTTY 0.65 fixes the Vista bug where the configuration dialog became invisible, and a few other bugs, large and small.

These features are new in beta 0.65:

  • Incoming connections to PuTTY tools (to forwarded ports and to the connection-sharing socket) now log their source address or pid, where facilities exist to do so.
  • Cryptography speedup on 64-bit Unix platforms by using gcc and clang’s __uint128_t built-in type.
  • Bug fix: the configuration dialog is no longer accidentally invisible in some Windows Vista display themes.
  • Bug fix: the Windows PuTTY GUI no longer becomes unresponsive if the server sends a continuous flood of data. (Sorry! We fixed that once before, but it came back in 0.64.)
  • Bug fix: PSFTP now returns a failure exit status if a command fails in a batch-mode script.
  • Bug fix: ESC[13tcannolongerelicitaninvalidescapesequenceasaresponse[13tcannolongerelicitaninvalidescapesequenceasaresponse
