Putty for Mac 7.5 has been released

Wine Reviews released Putty for Mac 7.5.0 for MacOS today. Putty 7.5.0 is another major release,  we have added SSH Authorization / Authentication SSH Tunneling support to this release. Please see the full change-log below for all the exciting changes in this release.

Putty is one of the Best Terminal Emulators available today. It Supports different types of Network Protocols such as SSH, FTP, SCP, Telnet etc. In Windows it is used as SSH Client to connect to Your Linux server or for some other purpose But what will you do if you are on Mac? You might be thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software’s we can Use putty on MacOS although Putty is used widely on Windows Platform. Official Versions of Putty are available on Unix like Platforms, and now it’s widely available for Mac systems running OSX 10.11 or higher.

SSH is available by default in Mac and Linux or Unix. Although you can use terminal for SSH connections still there are some benefits in using Putty such as Other clients don’t keep connections alive whereas Putty does. Also it is cool to use Putty as your SSH client if you are doing some CISCO Stuffs, transferring files, managing files on a server or whatever.

The cost of Putty 7.5.0 is still only $10.00. Anyone who has purchased Putty in the past three months is entitled to a free upgrade. Putty comes with three months of upgrades and of course a 14-day money back guarantee.

Supported Protocols:
  • Telnet
  • FTP
  • SSH
  • SCP

About Wine Reviews:
 
There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. Our goal is to have native ports of essential Windows tools and applications made available for MacOS users.

Version 7.5.0 New Features:
  • Added a installer so you can configure the installation location 
  • Pterm is now supported on MacOS 10.12
  • Fixed a large number of icon rendering bugs 
  • Cleaned up theme support a little 
  • Fixed a couple dynamic lib linking bugs 
  • Fixed a crash in Browse 
  • Fixed the SSH drop down menu 
  • Preliminary support for SSH private key Authorization / Authentication 
  • Preliminary support for SSH Tunneling 
  • Other small random bug fixes

We now use FastSpring as our preferred storefront, you can pay with Credit / Debit Cards, PayPal, Amazon payments, Wire Transfer etc. etc. This store is very secure, simple and fast.

Purchase Putty 7.5.0 now and have Telnet SSH FTP SCP on your Mac made easy!

Putty for Mac FAQ version 7

Here is a FAQ about Putty for Mac it should help answer the most common questions and support request.

(Q) What is Putty for Mac?
(A) Putty is one of the Best Terminal Emulators available today. It Supports different types of Network Protocols such as SSH, FTP, SCP, Telnet etc. In Windows it is used as SSH Client to connect to Your Linux server or for some other purpose But what will you do if you are on Mac? You might be thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software's we can Use putty on Mac although Putty is used widely on Windows Platform. Official Versions of Putty are available on Unix like Platforms, and now it's widely available for Mac systems running OSX 10.11 or higher. Please see the FAQ entry about running Putty on OSX 10.8, 10.9 and 10.10 below.

(Q) I get this error when installing ( Error : LaunchServices: Could not store lsd-identifiers file at /private/var/db/lsd/com.apple.lsdschemes.plist ) is this a Putty error / bug?
(A) No, it's a Mac OS X bug :) See : https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7270354?tstart=0

(Q) Can I install Putty on OSX 10.12 Sierra?
(A) YES! See :  http://osxdaily.com/2016/09/27/allow-apps-from-anywhere-macos-gatekeeper/

(Q) How do I expand the Putty window it is very small by default?


(A)  Unfortunately at this time, Putty for Mac does not support resizing an established connection.

What you can do is create another session for your application and set a custom Window size for it by changing the Columns and Rows and then save that for future usage of that application.

I know it is not optimal and hopefully we will be able to support resizing sometime in the future.


 (Q) Can I install and run Putty on OSX 10.8.x, 10.9.x and 10.10.x ?
 (A) Possibly, it's known to work and has been tested on 10.9.5 for example, the problem is if Putty runs into a version of Xcode that it's not compatible with. And we don't feel comfortable suggesting people to upgrade or downgrade Xcode. You are more then welcome to purchase "Putty for Mac" and give it a try.
Putty for Mac running on OSX 10.9.5

(Q) I downloaded and installed Putty but I get a security warning when trying to run it, what's up?
(A) If you try to open an app that is not registered with Apple by an identified developer you get a warning dialog. This doesn’t necessarily mean that something’s wrong with the app. For example, some apps were written before developer ID registration began.

To override your security settings and open the app anyway:
  1. In the Finder, locate the app you want to open.
    Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu.
  2. Press the Control key and click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu.
  3. Click Open.
    The app is saved as an exception to your security settings, and you can open it in the future by double-clicking it just as you can any registered app.
Note:   Another way to grant an exception for a blocked app is to click the “Open Anyway” button on the Security pane of System Preferences. This button is available for about an hour after you try to open the app. To open this pane, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Security & Privacy.

Example Screenshots 


 Follow the above instructions and Putty should run as expected.

(Q)Where can I purchase Putty for Mac and how much does it cost?
(A) Putty for Mac cost just $10.00 and can be purchased here.

Putty for Mac 7.0 has been released

Wine Reviews released Putty for Mac 7.0.0 for MacOS today. Putty 7.0.0 is a major release  we have added preliminary support for plink, puttygen and pageant as well as a number of small bug fixes.

Putty is one of the Best Terminal Emulators available today. It Supports different types of Network Protocols such as SSH, FTP, SCP, Telnet etc. In Windows it is used as SSH Client to connect to Your Linux server or for some other purpose But what will you do if you are on Mac? You might be thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software’s we can Use putty on MacOS although Putty is used widely on Windows Platform. Official Versions of Putty are available on Unix like Platforms, and now it’s widely available for Mac systems running OSX 10.11 or higher.

SSH is available by default in Mac and Linux or Unix. Although you can use terminal for SSH connections still there are some benefits using putty such as Other clients don’t keep connections alive whereas Putty does. Also it is cool to use Putty as your SSH client if you are doing some CISCO Stuffs, transferring files, managing files on a server or whatever.

The cost of Putty 7.0.0 is only $10.00. Anyone who has purchased Putty in the past six months is entitled to a free upgrade. Putty comes with six months of upgrades and of course a 30-day money back guarantee.

Supported Protocols:
  • Telnet
  • FTP
  • SSH
  • SCP

 

About Wine Reviews:

 

There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. Our goal is to have native ports of essential Windows tools and applications made available for MacOS users.

Version 7.0.0 New Features:

 

  • added plink terminal support
  • added puttygen terminal support
  • added pageant terminal support
  • fixed some font issues
  • Small bug fixes
We use PayPal as our preferred payment provider, with PayPal you do not need an account to make a transaction simply select to pay via credit card, its very simple and fast.

The WineHQ Wine stable release 2.0 is now available for Linux and Mac

The WineHQ Wine stable release 2.0 is now available for Linux and Mac

The Wine team is proud to announce that the stable release Wine 2.0 is now available.
This release represents over a year of development effort and around 6,600 individual changes. The main highlights are the support for Microsoft Office 2013, and the 64-bit support on macOS.
It also contains a lot of improvements across the board, as well as support for many new applications and games. See the release notes below for a summary of the major changes.

This is the first release made on the new time-based, annual release schedule. This implies that some features that are being worked on but couldn't be finished in time have been deferred to the next development cycle. This includes in particular the Direct3D command stream, the full HID support, the Android graphics driver, and message-mode pipes.

The source is available now. Binary packages are in the process of being built, and will appear soon at their respective download locations.


What's new in Wine 2.0
======================


*** Text and fonts

- More DirectWrite features are implemented, including:
  - Drawing of underlines.
  - Renderer sees drawing effect associated with text segment.
  - Support for color fonts in COLR/CPAL format.
  - Initial font fallback support, builtin data for some of CJK ranges.
  - Support for Wine-specific font replacement registry settings.
  - Improved font metrics resolution in case of incomplete or
    ambiguous font data.
  - Support for EUDC font collection based on current registry
    settings.

- Font embedding in PDF files is supported.

- The RichEdit control supports bulleted and numbered lists.

- Bold glyphs can be synthesized also for bitmap fonts.

- Character tables are based on version 9.0.0 of the Unicode Standard.


*** Graphics

- Window, bitmap and GDI DC render targets are implemented in Direct2D.

- A wide range of optimizations make the DIB engine noticeably faster.

- GDI graphic paths are reimplemented for better compatibility; they
  are also supported with enhanced metafiles.

- Gradients are supported in GDI enhanced metafiles.

- Metafiles are better supported in GdiPlus.

- The macOS graphics driver supports a high-resolution ("Retina")
  rendering mode. It can be enabled by setting "RetinaMode" to "Y"
  under HKCU\Software\Wine\Mac Driver.


*** User interface

- The clipboard support is reimplemented for better compatibility;
  copy & paste of HTML text is also improved. Drag & drop works more
  smoothly.

- In desktop mode, the taskbar displays running applications and
  allows switching between them.

- Version 4 of the system tray notification protocol is implemented.

- In desktop mode, some less common display resolutions like 640x400
  and 1280x960 are supported.

- More user interface elements scale correctly with high-DPI screens.


*** Direct3D

- More Direct3D 10 and 11 features are implemented, including:
  - Several more shader model 4 and 5 shader instructions.
  - Several more resource formats.
  - Integer vertex shader inputs.
  - Typeless resources.
  - sRGB read/write support.
  - Depth and stencil clears.
  - Depth-only draws.
  - Array textures.
  - Index buffer offsets.
  - Unordered access views.
  - Primitive restart.

- The WineD3D graphics card database recognizes more graphics
  cards. When available, the GLX_MESA_query_renderer GLX extension is
  used to provide more accurate information about the graphics card.

- The (system) memory layout of texture resources more closely matches
  Windows. This affects applications that write beyond the bounds of a
  MIP-level, like for example League of Legends.

- The implementation of non-maskable multisample anti-aliasing is more
  correct. In particular, when the ARB_internalformat_query extension
  is available, only quality levels corresponding to specific sample
  counts supported by the OpenGL implementation are reported to the
  application.  Previously, reporting a large number of non-maskable
  multisample anti-aliasing quality levels would break some
  applications.

- Direct3D 11 feature levels are supported.

- Retrieving a GDI device context from DXGI surfaces is
  implemented. This is used for rendering to DXGI surfaces using GDI.

- More DXGI swapchain methods are implemented, particularly those
  relating to switching display modes and switching to and from
  fullscreen.

- When ARB_clip_control and ARB_viewport_array are both supported,
  position fixups are slightly more efficient.

- The APPLE_client_storage extension is no longer used. It caused more
  problems than it solved.

- New HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D registry keys:
  - "CheckFloatConstants" (REG_SZ).
    Setting this to "enabled" enables additional run-time bounds
    checking on relatively addressed shader constant access. This
    helps some (broken) applications, but comes at a performance cost.
  - "MaxShaderModelHS", "MaxShaderModelDS" and "MaxShaderModelCS" (REG_DWORD).
    These limit the maximum supported shader model for hull, domain,
    and compute shaders respectively, analogous to the existing
    "MaxShaderModelVS", "MaxShaderModelGS", "MaxShaderModelPS"
    keys. Note that these shader types are new in shader model 5, so
    setting this to anything lower than 5 will effectively disable
    them.
  - "SampleCount" (REG_DWORD).
    Setting this registry key will force the multisample anti-aliasing
    sample count to the specified value for swapchain render
    targets. This allows anti-aliasing to be forced on applications
    that do not otherwise support anti-aliasing themselves, but may
    have no effect or break the application depending on the specific
    application.


*** DirectDraw

- Retrieving a GDI device context from a DirectDraw surface is
  implemented in a more accurate way. In particular, retrieving a GDI
  device context for a "client memory" surface will retrieve a GDI
  device context that's backed by that same client memory.

- A number of fixes related to vertex transformation in early
  DirectDraw versions have been made.


*** D3DX

- The support for the D3DX 9 effect framework is more complete, in
  particular:
  - There is initial support for preshaders.
  - Many more effect states are correctly applied.

- D3DX 10 and 11 asynchronous data loaders are implemented.

- The d3dx9 DLLs no longer forward to d3dx9_36, but are built from the
  same source instead.

- The d3dcompiler DLLs no longer forward to d3dcompiler_43, but are
  built from the same source instead.


*** Sound and video

- GStreamer version 1.0 is supported for audio and video streams.

- DirectSound supports downmixing from 5.1 and 4.0 formats to stereo.


*** Internet and networking

- The Web Services API is supported. The XML reader and writer are
  implemented, along with support for serializing many common data
  types. Basic support for making SOAP calls is also included. This
  enables Microsoft Office 2013 online activation.

- The Gecko engine is updated to the version from Firefox 47.

- IDN name resolution is supported.

- Various SHA hashes are supported using GnuTLS.

- Looking up the host address prioritizes non-loopback interfaces,
  which fixes a number of networked games.

- XML writing is faster for large files.

- Winsock supports the IP_DONTFRAGMENT socket option.

- Long URLs are handled correctly.

- JavaScript performance is improved. JSON is also supported.


*** Internationalization

- There is proper support for the Persian locale.

- Uniscribe better supports right-to-left languages.

- Japanese Hiragana, Katakana and full-width/half-width character
  mapping is implemented.


*** 64-bit support

- 64-bit applications are supported on macOS.

- The Mono engine has 64-bit support.

- C++ exceptions are handled correctly on x86-64, including nested
  exceptions and collided unwinds.

- The debug registers are supported on x86-64.


*** Built-in applications

- The 'winebrowser' helper application supports multiple arguments to
  invoke the host browser or mailer.

- The 'reg' command-line registry utility supports the 'query'
  command, all registry data types, and has more robust command line
  handling.

- The 'winhlp32' help viewer properly displays tables and images.

- The 'wineconsole' tool better supports East-Asian fonts. Color
  handling is also improved.


*** Build environment

- Import libraries can optionally be built as static libraries
  similarly to Windows, instead of .def files. This avoids the need
  for a separate .def.a library file.

- The IDL compiler supports "midl_pragma warning" directives.

- Cross-compilation with the Mingw-w64 Clang and ARM toolchains is
  supported.


*** Kernel

- A new driver architecture is in place for supporting HID devices.
  This follows the Windows model, with platform-specific bus drivers
  and HID minidrivers. It will be used in future releases to unify
  support for HID devices, and potentially also for USB device
  support.

- Loading multiple kernel drivers inside the same user-mode process is
  supported. This is used for HID drivers.

- A directory cache is implemented, to allow returning files in the
  expected order and avoid relying on platform-specific system calls.

- Many more API Set libraries (the oddly-named api-ms-win-* dlls) are
  implemented.

- Interrupt 0x2d (used for debugger checks) is emulated.


*** Miscellaneous

- Read interval timeouts are supported for serial ports.

- Variables starting with 'QT_' are filtered from the Unix environment
  since they may have unwanted effects on Qt-based Windows
  applications.

- Support for joystick button mapping and force feedback effects is
  improved.

- Many stream classes are implemented in MSVCIRT, the old I/O stream
  C++ runtime.

- Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) implements some more WBEM
  classes.

- Most remaining OpenMP functions are implemented.

- Uninstallation support in MSI is improved.


*** New external dependencies

- libudev is used for HID device support.

- GStreamer version 1.0 is used instead of version 0.10.

- GnuTLS version 2.10 or higher is required for the SHA hashing
  functions to be supported.


*** Configuration changes

- A number of DLLs are now built separately from a common source,
  instead of forwarding to a master DLL. This means that native DLL
  overrides need to be set on the specific version of the DLL being
  loaded, instead of the master one. This applies to the d3dx9_*,
  d3dcompiler_*, xaudio2_*, xapofx1_* and x3daudio1_* DLLs.


*** Release numbering

- Starting with 2.0, version numbering will change: stable release
  updates will follow the existing scheme: 2.0.1, 2.0.2, 2.0.3, etc.
  but the developemnt branch will drop the intermediate number: the
  releases will be numbered 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, etc. leading to the next
  stable release, which will be called 3.0.

New Putty for Mac Video SSH made easy

Putty is one of the Best Terminal Emulators available today. It Supports different types of Network Protocols such as SSH, FTP, SCP, Telnet etc. In Windows it is used as SSH Client to connect to Your Linux server or for some other purpose But what will you do if you are on Mac? You might be thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software's we can Use putty on Mac although Putty is used widely on Windows Platform. Official Versions of Putty are available on Unix like Platforms, and now it's widely available for Mac systems running OSX 10.11 or higher.


SSH is available by default in Mac and Linux or Unix. Although you can use terminal for SSH connections still there are some benefits using putty such as Other clients don’t keep connections alive whereas Putty does. Also it is cool to use Putty as your SSH client if you are doing some CISCO Stuffs, transferring files, managing files on a server or whatever.

Putty for Mac only cost $10.00 and can be easily purchased here.

World Wine News issue 405

This is the 405th issue of the World Wine News publication. Its main goal is to inform you of what's going on around Wine. Wine is an open source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. Think of it as a Windows compatibility layer. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely alternative implementation consisting of 100% Microsoft-free code, but it can optionally use native system DLLs if they are available. Wine runs natively on #Linux #MacOS #FreeBSD and #Android operating systems.

Wine 2.0 Release Work

The past weeks have been relatively quiet without any fancy developments. Developers are focusing on bugfixes for the upcoming Wine 2.0 release. In late December Alexandre posted an update to the release plans to wine-devel :

Folks,

Since there was (understandably) very little activity this week, I'm going to skip today's release. I'll release rc4 next Friday; after that, there will probably be a couple more release candidates, since I'm hoping that we can make some more progress on bug fixing once people are back from the holidays. That will put the final 2.0 probably in the second half of January.

Happy New Year to everyone!

User mode instruction prevention

We were alerted to some potentially interesting development from the Linux Kernel developers: The Kernel will be making use of a new feature of Intel CPUs called User-Mode Instruction Prevention (UMIP) . It allows the kernel to disallow non-system code from using certain CPU instructions that expose low-level information that could be used in exploiting code execution vulnerabilities. With UMIP enabled these instructions will cause an exception, which the kernel can either forward to the application (which will then by default crash) or the kernel can handle it in more elaborate ways and e.g. return dummy values to the application.

Ricardo Neri asked which way Wine would prefer:

If running in protected mode, always propagate the GP fault to the user space via a sigsegv. If running in vm86 mode, trap the GP fault within the kernel and give the userspace fake values for the aforementioned resources (most likely zeros).

Also, UMIP will be able to be disabled via a kernel command-line parameter at boot.

I would like to inquire about the current use of these instructions and whether it would be catastrophic for wine to lose access to them.

Note: vm86 is what people would roughly call „DOS mode“. It is not used by Wine nowadays because we invoke DOSBox for real mode executables. It is used by DOSEMU to run DOS applications without CPU emulation. The Windows equivalent is called NT Virtual DOS Machine .

Alexandre said that there were Windows applications that called these instructions, and that Wine has the infrastructure to handle these new exceptions itself and give the applications approriate values. It would require users to update Wine when the feature is enabled in the kernel though.

Ricardo then proposed that the kernel itself could provide fake values. The most obvious value would be to set any returned pointer to NULL.

Alexandre was not entirely happy with this solution:

That wouldn't work, because we'd have no way of knowing that this was an attempted IDT access and not a normal null pointer. We rely on SIDT returning a unique address that we can recognize once we get an access violation fault for it.

Ricardo‘s then proposed a patch that returned the address of a dummy variable in the kernel. Wine could detect this is an access to the IDT and handle it as it saw fit. However, this would expose kernel information again :

Nak. This is a trivial KASLR bypass. Just give them hardcoded values. For x86_64, I would suggest 0xfffffffffffe0000 and 0xffffffffffff0000.

Using these hardcoded values that are guaranteed to point into kernel addresses and thus cause a recognizable fault when accessed that Wine can handle. From Wine‘s point of view it is as good as the real Interupt Descriptor Table address that the CPU would return without UMIP, so old Wine versions should continue to work with UMIP-enabled kernels.
