TERMITE 1.10 NOW AVAILABLE!
Some of the NEW features in 1.10:
* Built in ZMODEM protocol
The XPR ZMODEM library is no longer required for ZMODEM transfers.
The functionality of the XPR ZMODEM library has been written into
Termite, with portions hand-optimized in assembly language for speed.
The built-in ZMODEM code also takes special measures to avoid dumping
binary "garbage" characters on your terminal, in the event of an
* Improved emulation
Termite now offers two built-in emulations: ANSI & VT102. The new
ANSI emulator is much more complete and robust, and has been
extensively tested with the most complex ANSI screens we could
The VT102 emulator is ideal for use with UNIX or VMS dialup
accounts, and can completely replace the XEM VT340 library for most
users purposes. Both of the built-in emulations have mouse-based
* Jump scrolling
Both of the built-in emulations offer the ability to "jump scroll".
Instead of scrolling the screen one line at a time, Termite
monitors incoming serial data and scrolls up multiple lines at
a time, for a huge speed increase.
* Multitasking review buffer
You can now use the terminal and review buffer simultaneously!
* Enhanced chat window
The chat window now maintainss a resizable "history", which keeps
track of the text you have sent. A single click on a line in the
history brings it up for editing. A double click on a history
line instantly resends it.
* New dialer
The dialer has been almost completely rewritten, although it
still visually appears the same. The "Cancel" button is now
available at virtually any point during the dialing process.
Dial monitoring can be toggled for each individual phonebook
* Predefined palettes
The screen settings requester now provides buttons which allow
you to switch between ANSI, RIP, and Termite default color palettes
with the click of a button.
* Review buffer filter
Optional filtering of ANSI codes out of the review buffer.
* New macro capability
You can now launch an ARexx script via a macro.
* New button bar icons
Sporting a cleaner default palette, Termite 1.10 offers a
revised selection of button bar images, which occupy less than half
the disk space of the previous images.
* New button bar functions
Settings requesters can now be accessed from the button bar.
* Compatibility with previous configuration files
Termite 1.10 will read your old 1.00 prefs and phonebook files without
any sort of conversion program, although you'll probably want to
browse through the settings menus anyway, to make sure you're getting
the most out of Termite's new features.
* Ignore file overwrite warnings
"This file exists, overwrite it?" warning messages can be optionally
turned off, for the benefit of expert users.
* Ignore serial errors
Optionally disable reporting of serial errors. Termite will just
drop the offending data bytes instead.
* New and revised ARexx commands
"SerExpand" is now "Send". New commands, including "AppendCapture".
* New manual
* New quick reference card
Quick reference card that explains the suggested usage of the default
button bar images.
* Recoverable alerts fixed
All known instances of recoverable alerts have been fixed.
* Much more...
Many many little tweaks and improvements, for a leaner,
