Hi everyone!


We just released a major release of MobaXterm (9.0)!


We have been working on this release for months and we are now ready to release it. It comes with many exciting new features and enhancements:

• The new "Ubuntu Bash on Windows" (also known as "Windows Subsystem for Linux" or "WSL") feature has been integrated into MobaXterm.
This allows you to use the new Ubuntu Bash feature (introduced in latest Windows 10 builds) directly into MobaXterm, and to take advantage of MobaXterm convenient interface (tabs, advanced terminal emulator, syntax highlighting, multi-execution, …). You can even start a graphical application in Ubuntu Bash and it will be displayed thanks to MobaXterm embedded X server! For those who do not have the latest Windows 10 with WSL, remember that you can still have Bash on Windows (and much more) by opening a local terminal in MobaXterm.


• You can now track terminal activity. When you are working in a tab, if some activity is detected in another tab, the icon will blink, and the tab title will turn to blue color in order to inform you that the terminal content has been modified.


• A new experimental feature allows you to open any external file or program directly into MobaXterm tabbed interface.


• You can now specify a macro in Ssh, Telnet, Rsh, Mosh, Serial (COM) and Shell sessions. This allows you to automatically execute a macro when session starts. By the way, the macros have been greatly improved: you can now edit them in a more convenient way and you can also specify pattern conditions (wait for a pattern before following up with macro execution).


• Another new interesting feature which can be helpful is the "browser emulation". You can now emulate older Internet Explorer versions, from IE7 to IE11. Of course, you can only emulate versions of IE that are older than yours. This is very useful in order to display a website or url with a specific version of Internet Explorer.


• The new syntax coloration feature has been greatly improved with speed improvements and better keywords detection.



In fact the full changelog is quite huge, so we will not post it here :wink:
You can download this new release here: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html


We wanted to say a big thanks to you all. We have received many emails containing very positive feedback concerning MobaXterm and this is very motivating for us!

Kind regards from MobaXterm team :wink:

Hi everyone,

We just wanted to let you know that we released a new minor version of MobaXterm (9.1).

In this version, we tried to improve existing features by removing limitations, fixing issues and enhancing GUI speed.
We managed to fix a long-standing problem with RDP sessions and Windows focus: in some particular cases, there were issues when switching from another application to MobaXterm, if a RDP session was active.

We also tried to analyze our users feedback and to fix reported limitations: MobaXterm works better even if its configuration file is not writeable, it does not freeze at startup even if SSH tunnels are configured with a non-reachable host, we suppressed a transient visual "glitch" on the top buttons bar each time a new session is started, ...

You can download this new release of MobaXterm here.

We wanted to say a big thanks to you all. We have received many emails containing very positive feedback concerning MobaXterm and this is very motivating for us!

We hope you will enjoy working with this new version of MobaXterm :wink:

I'll have to remind myself to check out MobaXterm again once I get the Windows 10 anniversary update installed!

Does MobaXterm do anything with portability with bash here? Let's say I install git or whatever, does the data get stored in %appdata% or within MobaXterm's directory?
is it stealth? ;)

@freakazoid

If you talk about the "bash" program which is available within MobaXterm itself, everything is stealth as long as you use the "portable version": the bash program is extracted at run time in the %TEMP% directory and removed after usage.

If you talk about the "bash" program which comes with new anniversary update of Windows 10 and which is provided by Canonical (Ubuntu), then this is not stealth by design, and MobaXterm will not change this: MobaXterm just provides a way to easily access this feature and it provides a great terminal emulator in order to add useful features.

I hope this answers your question :wink:

Hi everyone!

We just released a new version of MobaXterm (9.2)!

In this version, we tried to improve the application by removing limitations, implementing some requested functions and enhancing GUI speed. We also added 2 new features which have been requested many times:
  • - Custom syntax highlighting definition: we received a lot of positive feedback about the terminal syntax highlighting feature, but some of you were frustrated not to be able to create your own syntax highlighting defintions. This is why we added a new graphical interface which allows you to create your own custom syntax definition or to improve the existing ones.
  • - Line delay option: while pasting to the terminal, some of you reported that the remote system was not able to cope with a huge amount of pasted data. This new feature gives some time for slow remote systems to handle pasted text properly.
We also tried to bring improvements based on your feedback: overall speed has been improved, new features have been added to the graphical SSH-browser, some syntax colorations have been added for Perl and Sql and the “Ubuntu Bash for Windows” feature has been greatly improved.

You can download this new version here.

We hope you will enjoy working with this new version!
:wink:

Hello everyone!

We are now releasing MobaXterm version 9.4!

In this release, we introduced numerous changes and improvements to the graphical SSH-browser, and we completely re-designed GSSAPI (Kerberos) architecture. You can now activate GSSAPI (Kerberos) from MobaXterm global settings, in the "SSH" section, and use native Windows GSSAPI support or choose a third-party library such as MIT Kerberos library.

We also improved many other features (syntax coloration, SSH browser, start up speed, ...)

As usual, you can download this new version here.

We hope you will enjoy working with this new version!
:wink:

Hello everyone!

We wanted to let you know that we just released MobaXterm 10.2!

Here are the main improvements since version 9.4:

New popup console: we added a new semi-transparent popup terminal which can be shown/hidden, using a simple keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+M by default), like the great "Guake" top-down console. You can for instance hide MobaXterm using "Ctrl+M", browse your folders in Windows explorer and when you need it, you can call the popup console using Ctrl+Alt+M. The console will show up instantly and the shell will automatically start in the corresponding folder.

Customization capabilities: you can now customize your session icons by picking up your own icons from your hard drive, choose MobaXterm interface overall size (font, icons, ...), add timestamp to each line of sessions logs and many other new customization capabilities

Speed improvements: we tried to make MobaXterm faster in many ways: we improved startup speed, SCP/SFTP transfer speed, syntax highlighting and tabs activity tracking speed, and overall interface speed.

Security fix: we fixed the CVE-2017-6805 vulnerability found in the embedded TFTP server: in version 9.4 and before, when you started the TFTP server, some users could download a file which was outside the chosen TFTP root folder. This has been fixed in version 10.2

New professional generator: this new program for professional users allows you to generate your MobaXterm Professional copy, with your own settings included. The generator is able to directly install MobaXterm, to generate the MSI installer or to generate the portable package
New graphical user interface: we performed many graphical enhancements by adding a new default UI theme, enhancing global settings and sessions ergonomics, eliminating flickering effects on tabs and buttons, ...

Besides these additions and improvements we have tried to fix several limitations and bugs that you reported. As usual, your feedback is greatly appreciated!

As usual, you can download this new version from our website.

We hope you will enjoy working with MobaXterm v10.2! :wink:

Hi everyone,

We just released a new version of MobaXterm (10.4)!

This release adds support for shared sessions: you can export some sessions to a file, put this file in a shared location (network drive, intranet, FTP or SSH/SFTP server), and share it among your team members who use MobaXterm.

We also tried to add support for AWS S3 sessions: you can browse your S3 buckets using this graphical session type. However, this is still experimental as we have not been able to test it thoroughly on many different kinds of accounts yet.

Many features that you requested have also been implemented: a confirmation message can now be displayed before pasting multiple lines to the terminal, in order to avoid unexpected lines execution in interactive shell. We also improved syntax coloration of standard keywords (OK/warning/error/…), mobapt package manager, we added new setting which allows to hide the popup terminal instead of closing it in order to avoid losing previous terminal commands, and much more…

We also improved MobaXterm behavior and fixed issues with multi-monitors, IPv6 connections, mouse scrolling and keyboard shortcuts. Besides these additions and improvements we have tried to fix several other limitations and bugs that you reported.

Unfortunately, we have also found a minor bug after releasing this version: if you decide to put the sessions tree sidebar to the right side of the main window, sessions edition will be disabled. As a workaround, you can put back the sessions tree sidebar to the left.

As usual, you can download this new version from our website

We hope you will enjoy this new version! :wink:

Hi everyone,

We just released a new version of MobaXterm (10.5)!

This release adds new experimental VNC engine: this new embedded engine improves rescaling, speed, keyboard and clipboard handling.

We also improved security for telnet and ftp services: added password authentication, added confirmation popup message to allow incomming connections.

Many features that you requested have also been implemented: new F2 shortcut for quick rename of sessions, added smart detection of Citrix hook dll during MobaXterm startup and much more…

We also improved MobaXterm overall speed and fixed issues present into release 10.4 when tree sidebar was on the right side. Besides these additions and improvements we have tried to fix several other limitations and bugs that you reported. As usual, your feedback is greatly appreciated!

As usual, you can download this new version from our website

We hope you will enjoy this new version! :mrgreen:

Hi everyone!

We would like to announce you that we have released a new version of MobaXterm (version 10.7).

This release brings some improvements to the embedded X11 server: now, X11 applications are shown in front of other applications at first launch.
The MobApt package manager has also been upgraded in order to avoid “package not found” errors.
A new fix also avoids corruptions in the MobaXterm configuration file backup, especially when the computer is shut down before MobaXterm is properly closed.

This release also brings some fixes to MobaXterm, especially for High-DPI monitors.

We are always happy to receive feedback from you guys. Thank you all.

As usual, you can download this new version from our website

Have fun with this new version!
