SecureCRT 8.1 and SecureFX 8.1 (Beta 1) Released Today with Updated UI on Mac and Linux

New Beta 1 releases of SecureCRT 8.1, SecureFX 8.1, and VanDyke ClientPack 8.1 are now available for download.

Here’s what you’ll find in the 8.1 (beta) releases:

New in SecureCRT 8.1 (beta)

  • SecureCRT for Mac has a new GUI and main toolbar. Mac and Linux versions have new toolbar icons in the Session Manager and Connect dialog.   Linux makes local shell connections easier with a new toolbar icon.
  • Get more done in less time using tab groups (now on all platforms). Switch easily between sessions organized in tabs. Or create a temporary tab group so you can work in one tab while monitoring command output from another tab.
  • Send commands to selected tab groups or visible sessions from the Command window.
  • Enhanced smart card (PIV/CAC) support is now available on all platforms. Select a specific certificate on the smart card (PIV/CAC) to be used for public-key authentication. PKCS #11 certificates are supported.  The username can be pulled directly from the specified certificate.
  • A hex view helps to debug serial communication.
  • Quickly add keywords to the keyword highlighting list – simply select a word in a session, right-click, and choose “Add keyword…”.
  • On Windows, use the right-click menu to perform the following operations on multiple selected tabs: Send to New Tab Group, Send to New Window, Disconnect, Close, and Lock.

New in SecureFX 8.1 (beta)

  • SecureFX for Mac has a new GUI and main toolbar. Mac and Linux versions have new toolbar icons in the Session Manager and Connect dialog.
  • A “Synchronize File Browsing” option allows lockstep navigation of local and remote folders that have the same directory structure.
  • Server-to-server synchronization makes it easier to roll out changes to a production server, do backups, and do replication.
  • Enhanced smart card (PIV/CAC) support is now available on all platforms. Select a specific certificate on the smart card (PIV/CAC) to be used for public-key authentication. PKCS #11 certificates are supported.  The username can be pulled directly from the specified certificate.
  • The Options menu now includes an “Edit Default Session” item so you can quickly change the default session and the Session Manager and Connect dialog right-click menus now include “Expand All Folders” and “Collapse All Folders”.
  • SFXCL enhancements include a /ConfigPassphrase option for specifying a configuration passphrase on the SecureFX and SFXCL command line and a /NoTempFiles option that prevents the creation of temporary files during synchronize and quick synchronize operations.

New in ClientPack 8.1 (beta)

  • vsh/vcp/vsftp now has the ability to specify a password for keyboard-interactive authentication on the command line. This allows unattended jobs or file transfers when the remote server requires keyboard-interactive authentication.
  • For vkeygen, the default key type is now RSA (ssh-rsa).
  • vsh on Windows adds the ability to administratively disable SSH2 port forwarding (tunneling).

You can download any of the 8.1 beta releases from the beta download page.
