Hello everyone!

We just released MobaXterm version 7.0.

In this release, we reworked the graphical interface, added IME support, increased SFTP speed, improved X server and much more.

Here is the full changelog :
- Improvement: MobaXterm graphical interface has been reworked (removed useless widgets, re-organized functions) in order to make it cleaner and easier to use
- Improvement: Chinese, Japanese and Korean keyboard are now fully managed using Input Method Editor (IME)
- Feature addition: The left sidebar can now be automatically shown/hidden by overlapping terminal, without resizing it
- Feature addition: A new "network scanner" tool allows you to search for computers in your network with listening services (can be disabled in PRO edition)
- Feature addition: A new "ports scanner" tool allows you to scan a computer in order to list open ports (can be disabled in PRO edition)
- Bugfix: Permission problems on SSH keys on Windows 8/8.1 have been fixed
- Feature addition: You can now specify terminal colors in global settings or per session
- Bugfix: Removed unwanted delay when changing from a tab to another one with an active SSH session and inactive SFTP
- Improvement: Changed terminal default charset to UTF-8 for better compatibility (you can change back to ISO-8859-1 in order to restore old charset behavior)
- Improvement: You can now specify a default login name for SSH sessions
- Improvement: SFTP upload speed is now 8 times faster on recent OpenSSH servers
- Feature addition: you can now specify a local folder for FTP and SFTP sessions
- Improvement: Updated X server to version 1.14.5 (some small fixes, especially for copy/paste operations)
- Bugfix: in SSH sessions, when a command was specified and the SFTP browser was enabled, it was not displayed
- Feature addition: A new "Quick connect" bar has been added in order to launch your saved sessions easily
- Bugfix: corrected a terminal problem on Windows 8.1 which resulted in a hidden cursor after resizing window
- Improvement: FTP passwords can now be saved
- Bugfix: Using FTP session, some files were incorrectly detected as "character devices" and thus were not editable
- Bugfix: Using FTP or SFTP sessions, some files were incorrectly detected as DOS/UNIX/MAC format in MobaTextEditor
- Improvement: After performing a "find" command in the terminal, the clipboard is now flushed
- Bugfix: In some very particular cases, the master password was asked although no master password was set
- Improvement: On the SFTP browser frame, the tooltip is now displayed after a short delay
- Bugfix: When password saving function had been disabled in the customizer (PRO edition), SSH gateway was not working correctly
- Improvement: COM ports are no longer tested at startup in order to increase startup speed
- Feature addition: 3 new X server modes available: these modes allow you to launch a transparent X server with window borders from fvwm, or even the full fvwm desktop
- Bugfix: The "follow SSH folder" feature did not work on old Solaris remote connections
- Bugfix: On German keyboard, AltGr+A now works correctly
- Improvement: Automatically set the correct charset for DOS commands (ipconfig, ping, ...)
- Improvement: Automatically set the correct charset for CMD sessions
- Improvement: Changed default sessions name

As usual, you can download this new version here: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html and it is still portable and stealth :wink:

Thank you!

Hello,

MobaXterm has been updated to version 7.1!
We wanted this to be a bugfix only release (especially we wanted to update OpenSSL library for heartbleed bug fixing), but we also made a great addition: the new MOSH session type. We also worked on making MobaXterm completely "DPI aware" (MobaXterm now handles now high resolution monitors, by increasing font sizes, icon sizes, which makes its graphical interface very "clean").

Here is the full changelog :
- Improvement: MobaXterm graphical interface has been reworked (removed useless widgets, re-organized functions) in order to make it cleaner and easier to use
- Improvement: Chinese, Japanese and Korean keyboard are now fully managed using Input Method Editor (IME)

I installed the MobaXterm Personal Edition (7.1) yesterday. The Keyboard setting is a static mapping table. How can I change the mapping and add more mappings? The default for Ctrl-C is to create a new terminal. But, Ctrl-C is typically "terminate or interrupt" what's running in the foreground. Please advise. Thanks.

Hello tcchao,

Thank you for testing MobaXterm.
By default, Ctrl+C should work properly in MobaXterm: the default keyboard shortcut for "New terminal" is "Ctrl+Alt+T".
Anyway, if you need to modify the default keyboard shortcuts in MobaXterm, you can go to "Settings" --> "Configuration" --> click on the "MobaXterm keyboard shortcuts" button. It will show you a list of all MobaXterm keyboard shortcuts and you will be able to modify them if you want.

We hope this helps!

Hello,

We wanted to let you know that MobaXterm has just been updated to version 7.2!
This new version comes with a lot of improvements and additions, but the most important one is the new package manager (called "MobApt"): this new tool allows you to install/remove/update packages in order to extend MobaXterm functionnalities.

- Bugfix: SSH tunnels are now started one by one to prevent compatibility issues between tunnels
- Improvement: Configuration settings have been sorted by categories
- Improvement: FTP is now automatically reconnected after server disconnection or timeout
- Improvement: You can now specify the persistent HOME (/home/mobaxterm) and SLASH (/) folder paths in MobaXterm customizer
- Improvement: You can now specify the default text editor in MobaXterm customizer
- Improvement: Updated busybox to version 1.22.1
- Bugfix: the "pipe" key was not recorded into macros with French and German keyboards
- Improvement: Tried to implement a workaround for the GbpSv rootkit which kills MobaXterm randomly on Brazilian computers
- Improvement: Added the "sshpass" tool for ssh sessions automation
- Improvement: Hitting "Esc" now closes dialog boxes
- Improvement: SFTP browser now follows symbolic links
- Bugfix: the "new folder", "new file" and "rename" dialog windows were sometimes hidden behind main MobaXterm window
- Improvement: Telnet sessions can now be tunneled through SSH

As usual, you can download this new version here: http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download-home-edition.html and it is still portable and stealth :wink:

Hello scoker,
It seems that you are using an old version of MobaXterm (6.6). You should use the most recent version of MobaXterm available (7.3) and if the issue persists, please send us an email (in MobaXterm, click on the "Help" button, then "Email").
Thanks!
