Putty, a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 and Unix platforms, is out with a new version – 0.60 with some important bug fixes:
- Pressing Ctrl+Break now sends a serial break signal.
- Serial ports higher than COM9 now no longer need a leading \\.\.
- You can now store a host name in the Default Settings.
- Bug fix: serial connections and local proxies should no longer crash
all the time.
- Bug fix: configuring the default connection type to serial should no
longer cause the configuration dialog to be skipped on startup.
- Bug fix: “Unable to read from standard input” should now not happen,
or if it still does it should produce more detailed diagnostics.
- Bug fix: fixed some malformed SSH-2 packet generation.
- Other minor bug fixes.
