mRemoteNG 1.70 Release Candidate 3 is now available. Download it now!

This is probably the last version before final release so please test it out very thoroughly and let us know of any issues.

  • Fixed issue MR-339 - Connection group collapses with just one click
  • Fixed issue MR-340 - Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
  • Fixed issue MR-344 - Move "Always show panel tabs" option
  • Fixed issue MR-350 - VerifyDatabaseVersion (Config.Connections.Save) failed. Version string portion was too short or too long.
  • Fixed issue MR-355 - Moving sub folders to top level causes property loss
  • Fixed tabs not closing on double-click when the active tab is a PuTTY connection.

1.70 RC3 for now - there's a bug with parameter passing to external apps in 1.71 beta 1

It's up to you and how much stability you want. Beta versions aren't as stable as Release Candidate versions.

Beta versions are still being worked on and major changes being made. They have not received much testing. I release them so that people needing specific new features or bug fixes can get them, and so that the community can test them and find bugs before the Release Candidate stage.

Once a version is to the Release Candidate stage, no new features are added and only minor changes are made to fix bugs. This is to make sure that no new bugs are introduced and the version is as stable and polished as possible.

So, right now, 1.70 is in the Release Candidate stage. I am just waiting and giving the community time to test it. Assuming no major problems are found, 1.70 Release Candidate 3 will become the final release version of 1.70. Since I have mainly just been waiting, I have started work on 1.71 and 1.71 Beta 1 is the first release of that work.
