Internet & Networking "After four long years, here comes a new version of PuTTY, the popular free telnet/SSH client for Windows and Unix platforms. PuTTY 0.61 brings new features, bug fixes, and compatibility updates for Windows 7 and various SSH server software. The new version supports SSH-2 authentication using GSSAPI, on both Windows and Unix. Users in a Kerberos realm should now be able to use their existing Kerberos single sign-on in their PuTTY SSH connections."

I mean, the unix-style behaviour of automatically copying as soon as you make a selection. Sometimes it is handy to select a region to make it more readable in negative colours, or as a marker to refer back to. But as soon as you make a selection, it is copied to the clipboard, overwriting any previous clipboard content. This might be common behaviour on unix, but it is not on Windows. I'd like to see an option for manual copying via the context menu.

Fwiw, copy-on-select is optional (but enabled by default) in Cygwin's mintty. Also, it also doesn't clear the selection when something is copied into the clipboard elsewhere.
