Changes made in version 1.84(Mar 28, 2002)

  • Fixed tty modes with BSDi host.
  • Fixed some focus and dialog initialization problems in the properties dialogs that have been bugging me for some time.
  • Fixed tabbing problems in global dialog
  • Added references to Online Support Forums in 'Help' menu and in the uninstall dialog
  • Changed 'Close on Disconnect' behavior so it is slightly less agressive about closing. Now, close on disconnect requires that a full connection be established and data is flowing in both directions before the app will even attempt to close when a disconnect is detected. This will alleviate the problem of the app closing immediately when a connection is terminated immediately after connecting.

I have been using AbsoluteTelnet for a little over a month. We use it's SecureShell abilities as a login to our character-based applications on Linux servers. The product has performed exactly as advertised. Although I've had a few issues (i.e., not knowing how to do certain things in AbsoluteTelnet), the support has been excellent and all of the issues I've encountered have been resolved quickly. -- sywyatt
