Hi everyone!

We just released a new version of MobaXterm (10.6)!

MobaXterm is your ultimate toolbox for remote computing: in a single Windows application, it provides loads of functions that are tailored for programmers, webmasters, IT administrators and pretty much all users who need to handle their remote jobs in a more simple fashion. MobaXterm provides all the important remote network tools (SSH, X11, RDP, VNC, FTP, MOSH, …) to Windows desktop, in a single portable exe file which works out of the box.

This release adds a new experimental feature: remote monitoring. This feature allows you to display a basic resources monitoring bar under your SSH session. It can be useful in order to keep a sharp eye on the resources consumed by your remote server while working on it (CPU, RAM, Network, Disk, …).

In this new version we brought many small improvements, especially in the SSH-browser, macros, SFTP sessions. We also added some new settings for professional users in order to disable some features, like Aws S3, Sftp or Mosh sessions, or Iperf and Cron services.

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!
