We just released a new version of MobaXterm (11.1)!
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. MobaXterm provides a basic Unix-like environment for Windows which uses an advanced console and can even run WSL distribution on Windows with full X server support!
This release improves the native integration of WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux, a.k.a. “Bash for Windows”): your WSL distribution runs with a full X server and can display graphical applications or entire desktops.
Following the previous major version (11.0), we have improved the software base on your feedbacks: manual selection of the COM port speed, overall speed and GUI performances.
This release also brings bugfixes such as AltGr in RDP session, keyboard handling in SSH browser and GUI flickering issues.
The full list of improvements is in the changelog below.
