MindTerm is a complete ssh-client in pure Java. It can be used either as a standalone Java application or as a Java applet. Three packages of importance are provided (terminal, ssh, and security). The terminal package is a rather complete vt102/xterm-terminal, and the ssh-package contains the ssh- protocol and also "drop-in" socket replacements to use ssh-tunnels transparently from a Java application/applet. It also contains functionality to realize a ssh-server. Finally, the security package contains RSA, DES, 3DES, Blowfish, IDEA, and RC4 ciphers.

Release Notes: Switched to use Java non-blocking I/O (NIO). Removes the AWT version of the GUI. Uses the Java Cryptographic Environment (JCE) rather than its own cryptographic classes. Using the JCE also makes it possible to run MindTerm in a FIPS mode where only FIPS-approved algorithms are used. Support for elliptic curve key exchange algorithms and host keys. The code has been checked and no longer produces any warnings when loaded in Eclipse. The embedded applet may resize to fill the area allocated to it.
Release Notes: More configuration options are available for the Telnet client. Configuration options were added to disable some menus. Bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: A telnet mode application was added. Interaction with servers doing password authentication over keyboard-interactive (which encompasses most Linux servers today) was improved. The SFTP module and the FTP over SFTP plugin were improved. There were many minor enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: The main changes are the addition of Kerberos support (gssapi-with-mic) and support for literal IPv6 addresses. Other useful features include NTLM auth to proxies.
