PuTTY – nach 4 Jahren gibt es nun die neue Version

PuTTY Version 0.61 veröffentlicht

PuTTY ist ein kleiner SSH und Telnet Client an dem wohl kein Windows-Admin vorbei kommt. 4 Jahre gab es nun keine Updates, Verbesserungen oder Weiterentwicklungen mehr. Jetzt meldet sich der Entwickler zurück und Updatet PuTTY auf Version 0.61. Hier ein paar wichtige Veränderungen.

– Support for SSH-2 authentication using GSSAPI, on both Windows and
Unix. Users in a Kerberos realm should now be able to use their
existing Kerberos single sign-on in their PuTTY SSH connections.
(While this has been successfully deployed in several realms, some
small gaps are known to exist in this functionality, and we would
welcome further testing and advice from Kerberos experts.)

– On Windows: PuTTY's X11 forwarding can now authenticate with the
local X server, if you point it at an X authority file where it can
find the authentication details. So you can now use Windows PuTTY
with X forwarding and not have to open your X server up to all
connections from localhost.

– On Windows: the Appearance panel now includes a checkbox to allow
the selection of non-fixed-width fonts, which PuTTY will coerce
into a fixed-width grid in its terminal emulation. In particular,
this allows you to use GNU Unifont and Fixedsys Excelsior. (Thanks
to Randall Munroe for a serious suggestion that inspired this.)

– On Unix: the GTK port now compiles with GTK version 2, which is
generally shinier and in particular provides access to client-side
scalable fonts. (Though, unlike some GTK 2 applications, we have
retained support for old-style X11 server-side bitmap fonts too.)

Some Linux distributions have been shipping pre-release versions of
GTK 2 PuTTY for years, so this won't be a surprise to anyone using
Unix PuTTY or pterm via Debian or Ubuntu. But this is the first
official release containing that functionality.

– A small but important feature: you can now manually tell PuTTY the
name of the host you expect to end up talking to, in cases where
that differs from where it's physically connecting to (e.g. when
port forwarding). If you do this, the host key will be looked up
and cached under the former name.

– Assorted optimisation and speedup work. SSH key exchange should be
faster by about a factor of three compared to 0.60; SSH-2
connections are started up in a way that reduces the number of
network round trip delays; SSH-2 window management has also been
revised to reduce round trip delays during any large-volume data
transfer (including port forwardings as well as SFTP/SCP).

– Support for OpenSSH's security-tweaked form of SSH compression (so
PuTTY can now use compression again when talking to modern OpenSSH
servers).

– Support for Windows 7's new user interface features. The new Aero
window management should now play nicely with PuTTY's complicated
window resize handling, and Windows 7 jump lists are now supported
so you can launch saved sessions directly from the taskbar.
