How it was coded originally. Default VB.Net WF code style.
Mainform singleton, combined user interface and business logic, global static App.Runtime. Therefore, its almost impossible to:

(VB, maybe?)

We all speak about conversion bugs. But, is number really big? Is they real?

squires wrote:Language ports are almost always a waste of time in the first place.
Do you have experience in this?

squires wrote:But as Riley pointed out to me, this would exclude from development people who rely on Express versions of Visual Studio.
Why? Express version supports VB.Net. Code conversion can be made through web tools or SharpDevelop.

Sorry to hear that.

As an advantage i could mention that, there are in 6 times more developers in C# than Vb.Net developers. That means, in theory, there are in six time more people, who can contribute code to project. (according to tiobe.com)

That's my plan. I'm going to continue working on mRemoteNG in VB.NET.

I couldn't agree more with you.

I've been thinking about implementing some new functionalities for a while, but VB has been the major obstacle. I dont really like the language and I'm not willing to invest time on it.

For me, this C# fork is something I've been looking for.

There's nothing I can do to stop you guys other than to strongly discourage you from splitting off. There's no going back. Any bug fixes or new features made in either codebase will be extremely difficult to merge back into the other.

At this moment it's not "extremely difficult", compare: original patch and ported version.

Exaktus, I just had to say love that you have ported this, it will make the replacement of putty and the additions of protocols much easier i believe.
I am watching your Port and think you will find a lot of support for this.

Is this still active? From the git repository it looks like there have been no changes in 3+ months. Maybe we could combine the two by starting to break out mRemoteNG into various class libraries (seperated from the main UI application) and then look at leveraging IOC to create more of a modular/extensible app that others could contribute to?

They made an update the other day but a friend has show me another project that is been going a while and has all the same features (Was a port from mremote original as well)
its :
Open Source
written in C#
Has lots of extra features
Oh did I mention it has integrated SSH so putty is no longer required :)

Its over on codeplex its called Terminals

The page is https://terminals.codeplex.com/

I Am now looking at stopping working on mine and working on this instead.

Have a look, I think it the way to go

Terminals is definitely an option (and an active one at that) however I am not a big fan of it's UI and how it organizes connections -- in that respect mRemoteNG is fare easier to work with (at least in my perspective).
