Hi everyone!

We just built a new release of MobaXterm (version 7.6)!

This new version comes with several new improvements among which:

  • support for the new technical preview of Windows 10 (6629)
  • full support for HDPI (UHD / 4K / Retina) displays with improved graphics and fonts
  • improved SSH client with updated SSH keys and encryption algorithms

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, …) and Unix commands (bash, ls, cat, sed, grep, awk, rsync, …) to Windows desktop, in a single portable exe file which works out of the box.
