Changes in SecureFX 8.5 (Beta 3) -- July 19, 2018 ------------------------------------------------- Change: - Pressing CTRL+B (or COMMAND+B on MacOS) in the tree view adds the selected folder to the list of bookmarks. Changes in SecureFX 8.5 (Beta 2) -- July 10, 2018 ------------------------------------------------- No changes. Changes in SecureFX 8.5 (Beta 1) -- June 28, 2018 ------------------------------------------------- New features: - The Manage Bookmarks dialog allows bookmarks to be edited, copied from another session, added, and deleted. - When "Open Bookmarks" is selected from the File menu or file view context menu, all the bookmarks are shown. If there a lot of bookmarks, the list may have to be scrolled to see all of them. - Added a global INI-file-only option called "SecureFX Single Instance", which is on by default. If SecureFX is already running and a new SecureFX session is launched from SecureCRT, from the system desktop, or from the command line, the new session will open in the existing SecureFX application window. - Added support for the SHA2-512-EtM and SHA2-256-EtM MACs. - Added a global option to make the default action "Transfer" when a file is double-clicked or is selected and ENTER is pressed. - Sorting on columns is supported in all list controls that have columns. - Added a session INI-file-only option "Keyboard Interactive Prompt" that allows the expected prompt for keyboard-interactive authentication to be specified. - SFXCL: Added a /ReconnectCount flag to SFXCL that specifies the number of times to try to reconnect after a disconnect occurs during a transfer operation. - SFXCL: Added a /Parsable option to the /List command, which forces the list output to be displayed in MLSD/MLST format. - SFXCL: Added command-line option /MaxParallel that allows the maximum number of parallel transfers to be specified for transfer operations. - SFXCL: Added command-line option /TraceLevel that allows the trace output verbosity to be specified for all file operations. Changes: - Improved the responsiveness of the user interface when multiple files are being transferred simultaneously. - The default action for pressing ENTER or double-clicking a file is transfer. This setting can be changed in the Global Options dialog. - In the Public Key Properties dialog, the "Use identity or certificate file" field can be left blank. - Because of an update to a cryptographic library used by SecureFX, newly generated DSA keys are now restricted to 1024 bits. - Preceding and trailing whitespace is removed from hosts entered in the Connect bar. - The Manage Bookmarks dialog is resizable. - The keyboard shortcut ALT+N brings up the Session Manager or Connect dialog. - Migrated trace level option for sessions to a higher number because most of the messages that were previously traced at level 1 were moved to level 2. - The session option "Disable initial SFTP extensions" can now be configured in the GUI. - Windows: Improved transfer speeds by more than 25% when thousands of files are transferred in parallel using the transfer queue. - Windows: For the VS2013 Dark theme, the active tab's color was lightened and the highlight outline color for selected options on the toolbar was changed to orange. - Windows: The close button for the "Native" display theme is now a plain "X". Bug fixes: - SecureFX crashed after closing a remote session tab and then entering text in the Session Manager's filter bar. - SecureFX could become non-responsive after uploading thousands of files listed individually using the transfer window instead of the transfer queue. - In the Session Manager or Connect dialog, if a folder was renamed to have a name that was too long for the local system, the sessions contained in the folder were deleted. - On case-sensitive file systems, synchronize operations could incorrectly match or miss entries where the file or folder names only differed by case. - On case-sensitive file systems, the entry selected in the tree view after a file operation could be incorrect if the operation involved folders or files with names that only differed by case from other folders or files. - Remote edit would not upload files when changes were made without exiting the editor. - Files could not be uploaded to a folder that did not already exist on a Titan server when SFTP version 6 was used. - SFXCL: Usernames, passwords, and configuration passphrases containing non-ANSI characters could not be entered at an interactive prompt. - SFXCL: If "/S:i" was specified on the command line, the remote initial directory was ignored if the destination filename was different from the source filename. - Windows: If a file on the remote system had a timestamp with a year beyond 9999, SecureFX could crash when the folder containing that file was viewed. - Mac/Linux: Every launch of the context menu took longer and used more memory. - Mac/Linux: When drag and drop was used to initiate a transfer, the entire row of the destination folder was not highlighted. - Mac/Linux: The list of hosts in the Global Options dialog in the SSH Host Key category was not sorted. - Mac/Linux: If a session name contained two ampersands, the Window and File menus displayed the session name with three ampersands. - Mac: Filters did not work correctly for the local window if the file system was case sensitive. - Linux: SFXCL crashed if it was run before SecureFX had ever been launched.
