      Release Notes: SCP support was dropped in favor of SFTP integration. secpanel supports integration of different SFTP file browsers just via configuration. Support was added for more terms, as for XFCE's and Putty's terminal. Usage of KDE- and GNOME-terminal was fixed. Port usage of multixterm integration was fixed. All terminals may now be used for all kinds of operations. The key distribution wizard now reflects the port of the current connection. The key distribution script may be used as a standalone application. Connection selection in sat mode window was fixed. Remote account management was fixed.

        Release Notes: More Xterm types are supported and Xterm usage was fixed. A problem in which SatMode connections tried to call multiple entries like FullMode was fixed. A central config-db was added for external xterms. Xterms are called consistently in all actions. The ClusterSSH and MultiXterm cluster tools were integrated.

          Release Notes: SecPanel is now able to fully use an ssh-agent that was externally started (via xdm). A remote account manager was integrated for inline editing of authorized_keys and known_hosts files. Multiple connections can be launched at once (single ssh connections in different terminals). A public key can be distributed to multiple hosts at once.

            This seems to be a very useful project, however for me to use it it lacks one feature.

            I have one hosting account with several domains to maintain. For this product to be useful, I need to set a separate destination directory foe each entry to cd to whenever I log in. Otherwise, I might as well just use a basic ssh command from the shell.

            I hope this can be added to the next version.

            Suggestions for improvement

            I was pleased with how SecPanel installed without
            having to hunt down any dependancies. The opening
            of the SCP window was very confusing. I almost gave
            up before finding it. I think that most people are going
            to want to use the GUI SCP. To open a mere SSH
            window I would suggest a seperate button.
