Hi everyone!

We have just released a new major version of MobaXterm (12.4)!

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 comes with a new dark theme feature. Don’t wait and enable it from the general settings window of MobaXterm. We hope you will enjoy this new theme!

Besides these additions and improvements we have fixed several bugs that you have reported. As usual, your feedback is greatly appreciated!
