KiTTY - SSH, Telnet and Rlogin client

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Kitty Portable update

#2 Post by TP109 » Sat Oct 18, 2014 8:53 am

version: 0.63.1.4
Couldn't seem to download the portable version from its home page, went here instead:
http://www.fosshub.com/KiTTY.html

Settings for Portability (reminder):
http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... php?t=4062
Which differ from portability settings on Kitty site here: http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?page=Portability&zone=en

May need to check for portability again because of these changes?:

It's whatever. We used to do everything with separate update posts before we started associating a forum thread to an entry so it's no biggie.

I'll go ahead and merge.

Is it possible at all to download components from the official download page?. All downloads open "Donation" page. This is absolutely abominable. I am asking because version 0.67.1.2 is not yet available at Google Drive.

Can't you download it from http://www.fosshub.com/KiTTY.html ?

(you might need to disable any addons that block referrers (header) - the direct download link seems to be http://www.fosshub.com/KiTTY.html/kitty_portable.exe but I think it might not work when you're not visiting the page above first)

You can get a fairly recent version (currently, v0.67.1.1) from Chocolatey package page at https://chocolatey.org/packages/kitty/. If you click download on the left sidebar bottom, you'll get a NUPKG that is in fact a mere ZIP file -- just rename and extract.

@lintalist
Yes, I can download from FossHub but not all KiTTY files are hosted there.
I keep a "plain" browser without any add-ons installed and with no integration to download managers for sites like KiTTY official one- K-Meleon, but even it was unable to download from KiTTY web-site. For me such aggressive donation prompts show a very bad taste and I never donate to such developers. Perhaps KiTTY developer has decided to stop using Google Drive for hosting because there he cannot push donation pop-ups.

@Midas
Thanks but I already have the version you mentioned. I was simply infuriated by KiTTY official download page.

So we're listing this program as open source (we're not the only ones) but I can't for the life of me figure out what the license is or where to download the source. The original (putty) was BSD but that's a license that is easy to take in a closed-source direction. I even downloaded the documentation and I can't find anything there either.

Ideas welcome. Otherwise I'm tempted to change the license to "Freeware"

KiTTY uses a permissive license. You can view it by clicking About -> Licence. I also copied it into the spoiler tag below.
