New version of Putty available
I'm sure people will not disagree with me that Putty is the de-facto SSH client on Windows. At least it is my 80x24 window to escapism.
Well now we have a new version available, Putty 0.61 (beta). Amazingly its been 4 years since the last update.

Change log from the Putty Website.
These features are new in beta 0.61 (released 2011-07-12):
- Kerberos/GSSAPI authentication in SSH-2.
- Local X11 authorisation support on Windows. (Unix already had it, of course.)
- Support for non-fixed-width fonts on Windows.
- GTK 2 support on Unix.
- Specifying the logical host name independently of the physical network address to connect to.
- Crypto and flow control optimisations.
- Support for the email@example.com SSH-2 compression method.
- Support for new Windows 7 UI features: Aero resizing and jump lists.
- Support for OpenSSH AES-encrypted private key files in PuTTYgen.
- Bug fix: handles OpenSSH private keys with primes in either order.
- Bug fix: corruption of port forwarding is fixed (we think).
- Bug fix: various crashes and hangs when exiting on failure,
- Bug fix: hang in the serial back end on Windows.
- Bug fix: Windows clipboard is now read asynchronously, in case of deadlock due to the clipboard owner being at the far end of the same PuTTY's network connection (either via X forwarding or via tunnelled rdesktop).
