Rebex .NET components 2014 R3: Terminal Emulation enhancements and workarounds for a number of server issues

  |   Lukas Pokorny

This release brings useful enhancements in Terminal Emulation component. Additionally, a number of workarounds for various server issues has been added to FTP/SSL, SFTP and Mail.

UI-less terminal for Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.iOS and .NET Compact Framework

Terminal goes mobile. It's now possible to use UI-less terminal classes on iOS, Android and .NET Compact Framework. This includes VirtualTerminal, rich scripting API, remote exec, terminal emulation and other features.

Serial port connection support in Terminal Emulation

Terminal emulation features a new API for connecting to devices via serial RS-232 cable.

Legacy SSL 3.0 disabled by default in TLS/SSL-enabled components.

TLS 1.1 is now used by default in TLS/SSL-enabled components. Legacy SSL 3.0 support is disabled by default because it is no longer considered secure. Its use is strongly discouraged after disclosure of POODLE Attack.

(For a complete list of changes, see the release history.)

We are now working on adding Exchange Web Services support to Rebex Secure Mail and on an SFTP/SSH server component.
