Kermit 95 1.1.12 is now available as a patch to registered users of previous
Kermit 95 releases for Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2. This is a major new
release of Kermit 95, but no, it is not the long-awaited full-GUI release, but
it is a big step on the way. It replaces version 1.1.11 of 8 February 1997.
The new features of version 1.1.12 include:
. Microsoft Telephony (TAPI) support
. Support for 10-digit and other special dialing methods
. Support for 132 columns and other screen sizes in Windows 95
. File transfer pipes and filters
. Web browser interface ("URL hot spots")
. Greek character-set translation in file transfer and terminal emulation
. Lots more
The full announcement appears on comp.protocols.kermit.announce.
HOW TO GET IT
Kermit 95 1.1.12 is available as a patch to version 1.1.11 or earlier.
Current registered users of Kermit 95 can download the 1.1.11 upgrade patch
from our BBS or from our Web site:
or with ftp:
All the new features are documented in the updated UPDATES.TXT file that
comes in the patch, and in the updated BUGS.TXT file.
Academic site or bulk licensees that have customized their DIALINF.DAT
files will need to send them in so we can convert them to the new format,
since the regular patch will fail (since it only knows what the original
DIALINF.DAT contained, not your customized version). Contact us by email
about this at:
This is the final major release of Kermit 95 before the conversion to full
GUI is complete later this year. There might be minor corrective patches
between now and then, but nothing more. If you have any difficulty with
the patches or the new version, please report them by email to the address
