Changes in SecureFX 8.5 (Beta 5) -- August 16, 2018 --------------------------------------------------- Bug fixes: - If the global INI-file-only option "SecureFX Single Instance" was off and SecureFX was configured to log to a file, if a second instance of SecureFX was opened and the OK button was pressed on the dialog to select another log file and the file browse dialog was cancelled, SecureFX crashed. - SecureFX crashed when a folder that contained thousands of files was downloaded using SCP. - SFXCL: When /NoPrompt was specified for a session that used keyboard-interactive authentication and the session contained the password or it was specified on the command line, authentication failed. - Mac: When SecureCRT and SecureFX were integrated, if both SecureCRT and SecureFX were running and connected to a session and then SecureCRT was launched from SecureFX, the current session was opened in a tab in the SecureCRT window and in a new SecureCRT window. - Mac: SecureFX was unable to open a remote file if the "Open with" application was in a folder path that had spaces. Changes in SecureFX 8.5 (Beta 4) -- August 9, 2018 -------------------------------------------------- Bug fixes: - The file listing for a remote system could be very slow when the folder contained many subfolders (over 10,000). - Pressing ENTER on the ".." folder no longer went up one level. - When the "pwd" command was issued to get the initial directory for the remote system and an error was returned, SecureFX attempted to use the error message as the path for the "cd" command. - Directories were not listed in sessions connected to a BusyBox device (Dropbear SSH) using SCP. - When OneDrive was disabled, it was displayed as a file rather than a folder. - The Beta expiration notice was displayed more frequently than it should have been when SecureFX was not closed and other instances of SecureFX were started/opened/launched. - Mac: When a session was configured to use GSSAPI authentication, if GSSAPI authentication failed, a warning dialog to this effect was still displayed when "Do not show this message again" was checked. - Mac/Linux: The ".." folder could be deleted using the Delete keyboard accelerator. - Mac/Linux: The keyboard shortcuts did not work in the Log pane. 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.
