SSH-RT Release 7 and Windows 8.1 update

by on Jul.11, 2013, under Apps

Release 6 and 7 (version are now in the Store, release notes below. This release is for Windows 8.0, and has mostly been improvements and bug fixes to the core functionality.

I have already been working on a release for Windows 8.1, which greatly improves the usability of the terminal in snapped modes. Unfortunately, by releasing a version for 8.1, users still on 8.0 would no longer be able to get updates and there were just too many outstanding issues to move to 8.1 yet. The goal of this release has been to build a solid product for 8.0, and allow us to move to an 8.1 release in the next few weeks.

    I just bought SSH-RT, it is awesome. Since you can manage several connections with tabs I think it’s not only the most interesting SSH client for Windows RT but for Windows in general. And I tested alternatives like “Royal TS” and “SuperPutty”. The first is way to heavy for my use cases and the latter has a bad window management. So I’ll use SSH-RT on Windows 8 Pro as well. But allow me a question: does the Windows 8.1 support also mean that the font size stays the same when you resize the window? Also it would be great to be able to choose from more font sizes. The smallest is still kind of big on FullHD monitors.

    Hey there,

    Great app! Was wondering if there could be a mobile version in the works? SSH-RT on a 1520 would seem very geekish but at the same time very functional. As a DevOps / Software Developer in Test, being able to ssh into a server to check logs and such would be a godsend!
