Reviews for this release

Serious problem with this release. Connections are dropped at random, and when a connection is dropped (or sometimes when deliberately closed) it leaves a blank grey tab open which cannot be closed.

I like the new UI changes. Currently I have the problem that someone has also mentioned. Some RDP connections will become blank. Closing such a connection tab will crash Terminals.

after updating from 3.5 to 3.6 all my favorites, settings and credentials were gone. (WTF!!) but... I did a little research and realized, the LOCATION data-folder went from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Terminals" (location until 3.5) to "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Robert_Chartier\Terminals" (location since 3.6) ... so, i picked the whole DATA-folder and moved it into the appdata-location (of course with replacing the new, innocent data-folder created by the installation of 3.6) - and it worked. HTH! ;) ... well, beside of this little struggle I also have to deal with several crashes since 3.6. I hope this will be fixed soon. :)

A few issues SSH screen redraw issue is old and still not fixed. Now some windows freeze and closing them causes Terminals to crash. Overall I still like it

Same problem as stuartreed - installed 3.6 on top of 3.5, and *all* of my configuration has disappeared. The installer has overwritten "AppData\Local\Robert_Chartier\Terminals\Data\Terminals.config" with a default file, and there is *no* way to recover the original.

Updated review: I have just removed v3.6 for the bugs on window position and "blanking" the last connection on closing... Just installed without problems, but that bug item should be re-opened because it's not solved! At least for me now is even worst...

Great Idea. Bad Execution. I like the UI changes. Refreshing. Crashing constantly!! Multiple times a day. :( I have far too much going on and too many connections open to deal with constant crashing. Likely have to revert versions. Why Is the Parent folder Grouping not saved in the Export?? I have to Re-Create all my folders and reorganize all of my Favorite's into folders upon import... That is extremely inconvenient. Especially since I wasn't warned upon upgrade that it would delete all my favorites, or that I would have to import from a backup. (thank god I exported them first!)

Good idea, bad follow through. Convenience is the big sale point for me, but with the white screens and the crashes it really makes it difficult for me to continue using this release. I will probably revert to the older release that didn't crash on me repeatedly.

I recommend to everyone to always backup all your connections data before any upgrades. Go to: File menu, Export Connections. Then click "select all", and (at your preference) check the include passwords box. That being said, I didn't have any issues with upgrading to 3.6. However, for 3.6, there's currently this bug: I recommend staying on 3.5, until that bug is fixed.

Some open connections (tabs) will get blank after a while. This way you will have lots of open sessions on servers. Please fix quickly! Otherwise it's a perfect tool.

I've been using this tool since version 1.x (can't remember which version). It has come up a long way, and it is part of my tool set which I would have a hard time going without. With version 3.6, I have found only one bug so far, but that bug renders the tool useless for me. The issue is that it hangs quite often. Having several tabs open, I would click on one of the tabs, ant it's totally blank and the app crashes. If this crash thing can be fixed, the rest seems great. thanks! In the meantime, I'll revert to my backup of version 3.5 - I'm glad I had it setup as portable, which prevented me from losing all my favorites :)

Still SSH issue is not fixed ..........
by Ashokdev on May 11 at 5:05 PM
I used the msi install on top of 3.5. Looks ok so far except, unlike others who lost groups, servers, etc. my groups and servers are all still there but *almost* all the servers got duplicated (still within the group they were in). A small percentage (<10%) did not duplicate. I don't see anything in common on the ones that did duplicate or the ones that didn't. Some in groups duplicated and some in groups didn't but some NOT in groups duplicated and some not in groups didn't. Some with and without saved passwords duplicated and some with and without didn't. Old vs. new doesn't seem to be in common either. YMMV but, assuming the Export and Import work ok: People who haven't updated may want to export all favorites before update with passwords then whether things get removed or duplicated they could always delete all favorites and re-import that?

Just made a xcopy deploy and its connections from the v.3.5. I liked the new connection UI.

Updated from 3.5 to 3.6 with no issues. I went from 3.5 installed to 3.6 installed (not portable).
by g0dFather on May 8 at 1:46 PM
Glad I backed up 3.5. I rely heavily on groups. I was missing servers, not only from groups but from the list at all. Disappointed.

works great! ported from 3.5 to 3.6 i agree the prev protocol tabs were a bit confusing when i was a newbie using terminals keep up the good work!
by yippie_codeplex on May 8 at 6:45 AM
I have been running 3.5.0 for some time, I had all my servers grouped with passwords etc,, over 200+ servers. Downloaded 3.6, thought the portable version would be good, and installed it. It has completely deleted all my data from 3.5 so I have no servers, no config whatsoever. What a crock of ****.
