  [bnc#920167] (CVE-2015-2157)
  * Support for SSH connection sharing, so that multiple instances of
  PuTTY to the same host can share a single SSH connection instead
  of all having to log in independently.
  * Bug fix: IPv6 literals are handled sensibly throughout the suite,
  if you enclose them in square brackets to prevent the colons
  being mistaken for a :port suffix.

* Tue Aug 06 2013

  * Security fix: prevent a nefarious SSH server or network attacker

    presenting a maliciously constructed public key and signature.
    [bnc#833567] CVE-2013-4852
  * Security fix: PuTTY no longer retains the private half of users'
    keys in memory by mistake after authenticating with them.
  * Revamped the internal configuration storage system to remove all
    fixed arbitrary limits on string lengths. In particular, there
    should now no longer be an unreasonably small limit on the number
    of port forwardings PuTTY can store.
  * Forwarded TCP connections which close one direction before the
    other should now be reliably supported, with EOF propagated
    independently in the two directions. This also fixes some instances
    of forwarding data corruption (if the corruption consisted of
    losing data from the very end of the connection) and some instances
    of PuTTY failing to close when the session is over (because it
    wrongly thought a forwarding channel was still active when it was
  * The terminal emulation now supports xterm's bracketed paste mode
    (allowing aware applications to tell the difference between typed
    and pasted text, so that e.g. editors need not apply inappropriate
  * You can now choose to display bold text by both brightening the
    foreground colour and changing the font, not just one or the other.
  * PuTTYgen will now never generate a 2047-bit key when asked for 2048
    (or more generally n?1 bits when asked for n).
  * Some updates to default settings: PuTTYgen now generates 2048-bit
    keys by default (rather than 1024), and PuTTY defaults to UTF-8
    encoding and 2000 lines of scrollback (rather than ISO 8859-1 and
  * Unix: PSCP and PSFTP now preserve the Unix file permissions, on
    copies in both directions.
  * Unix: dead keys and compose-character sequences are now supported.
  * Unix: PuTTY and pterm now permit font fallback (where glyphs not
    present in your selected font are automatically filled in from other
    fonts on the system) even if you are using a server-side X11 font
    rather than a Pango client-side one.
  * Bug fixes too numerous to list, mostly resulting from running the
    code through Coverity Scan which spotted an assortment of memory
    and resource leaks, logic errors, and crashes in various circumstances.
