Version History of PuTTY 0.60

  • Pressing Ctrl+Break now sends a serial break signal. (The previous behaviour can still be obtained with Ctrl+C.)
  • 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.
