  • In the Zmodem Upload dialog, added a mnemonic to the OK button.
  • A warning is now displayed when an invalid filename is entered as the log filename.

Changes in CRT 5.0 (Alpha) -- November 30, 2004

New features:
  • Added the ability to create multiple global firewalls, which can be used on a per-session basis.

Bug fixes:
  • Sessions sometimes inherited the geometry from another window or a previous session.
  • When a session was started minimized, the geometry was incorrect, which resulted in lines being cut off.
  • If anti-idle was turned off for any session, the timer was turned off, which affected all sessions.
  • When trying to create a new session, if the session name "New" already existed, an error was sometimes displayed as soon as the Session Options dialog was launched.
  • Telnet: If a connection timed out or got a "reset by peer" error, SecureCRT crashed.
