fTelnet

News

I've just uploaded a new build of fTelnet. This version adds a 9x16 font for CodePage 866 (Russian characters), fixes a display problem with custom connect.ans files, removes the statusbar for a cleaner look (popup messages will be added later, if necessary), and updated the file transfer screens a little.

I've just uploaded a new build of fTelnet. I don't keep very good track of what I implement between releases, but I think this one implements a new file transfer dialog for uploads and downloads. It also adds new fonts from different codepages, which will hopefully help our international users (please let me know if it does help or not!)

This build is also the first with a release archive, so you can now download fTelnet and try it out for yourself. As always, feedback is appreciated.

(I also resized the website to be a little friendlier to the 1024x768 users, although I couldn't quite shrink it enough to eliminate the scrollbar!)

I've just uploaded a new build of fTelnet. This one fixes a screen clearing bug, where systems sending FORMFEED instead of ESC[2J weren't having the screen cleared. It also implements a new connect button, along with the ability to change it on a per system basis. There's also an intro ANSI that can be changed on a per system basis. And lastly, I rewrote the file transfer code to be easier to maintain (and possibly add fallback support), so hopefully I didn't break anything in the process!

If I don't hear about any problems by end of day today, then a release package will be put together and released tomorrow.

I've just uploaded a new build of fTelnet. This one includes a couple fixes identified by users, and implements batch downloading. The method for starting a transfer has also changed, rather than the CTRL+ALT+U and CTRL+ALT+D that previous versions used, there's now options on the right-click context-menu. After files are downloaded, options to save them will also be added to this context-menu.

If no big errors exist, I hope to put together a release package in the next day or two so it'll be easier to implement fTelnet on your own site.

I've just launched the new website for fTelnet. It's just a copy of my personal website, partly because I really like the design, partly because I'm too lazy to find another design I like better!

I still need to replace some of the stock images, but as I just mentioned, I'm a little lazy and would rather spend my time coding, so who knows when I'll get around to it!

Today, work has begun on fTelnet! There aren't a lot of choices out there for sysops who want to provide telnet access to their BBS from their website, so I've decided to try to give them a new option.

My aim is to be as good as some of the existing clients out there, while also implementing some much desired features they lack. I don't know if I'll be able to deliver everything that everyone wants, but I'm willing to give it a shot!
