by on Apr.25, 2013, under Apps

The 2nd update to SSH-RT has just been certified for the Windows Store. It can take up to 24 hours for your updates to arrive. The changes include:

  • Added UTF-8 / Unicode support for over 1500 characters for Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Armenian, Arabic, Lao, Georgian, and Symbols character sets
  • Improved screen re-sizing and rotation handling.
    • The terminal now dynamically re-sizes to best fill the screen on orientation changes and split screen modes
    • Improved the readability of very small text modes
    • Fixed a crash bug related to rotation before a session is started
  • Improved general Terminal Emulation
    • Improved compatibility with ZSH (Z-Shell) and VIM
  • Various bug fixes.

A couple of things planned for next release:

  • Import/Export of saved connections, for sharing between devices
  • Improved Copy/Paste functions

    Does this app support ash tunnels or x11 forwarding? If not, do you plan to?


    • R.Cade

      Tunneling is not possible right now because WinRT apps cannot share resources with other apps or the OS. Everything is in an isolated sandbox, so it would be useless.

      X11 forwarding would be cool, but not planned.

    I can’t find your SSH-RT app in the UK store. Have you made it US only?
