PuTTY version 0.77 is released

All the pre-built binaries, and the source code, are now available
from the PuTTY website at


New features in this release include:

 - PuTTY can now use an SSH server as a proxy, without having to
   launch Plink as a subprocess.

 - PuTTY can now prompt interactively for passwords required by proxy
   servers, or other kinds of interaction. (This is particularly
   useful with the new SSH proxy, because it means you can confirm the
   host key for the proxy server easily.)

 - When talking to HTTP proxy servers, PuTTY can now use digest
   authentication as well as the deprecated HTTP Basic.

 - Available from the download page (but not yet in the installer
   package), 'pterm.exe', a wrapper for the Windows console based on
   the PuTTY terminal window.

Bug fixes in this release include:

 - Fixed a crash when reconfiguring remote port forwardings (which
   only happened the second time you did it in a session).

 - Fixed hang when making many simultaneous connections to Pageant
   (either locally, or via frantic port forwarding).

 - Fixed display corruption if the server sent a terminal resize
   control sequence and then immediately redrew its screen at the new

 - Fixed handling of bidirectional text (Arabic, Hebrew etc) to be up
   to date with Unicode 14.0. In particular, this fixes a bug where a
   string of digits near Hebrew letters would sometimes appear in
   reversed order.

 - Fixed two separate bugs in remote window-title setting: the title
   no longer terminates early, and is interpreted in the right
   character set.

Enjoy using PuTTY!
