7/29/21

21.7.5

Fix screen not clearing at bottom when switching to 132 column screen.
(problem introduced in version 22.7.3)

Fix tag errors when editing function keys.


7/13/21

21.7.4

If printing in an 80 column window under host control and the lines are longer than 80 characters, now allow printing longer lines.

Removed the delay that was added in 21.7.2 when switching back to 80 column screens.


7/10/21

21.7.2

Fix transparent printing when switching to 132 column screen and back to 80 column screen under host control. Previous versions would wrap the text at 80 columns if the host switched back to 80 column mode imediately after printing.

Printer font size was changing to a smaller size and staying that way when you printed in 132 column mode. Now it reverts back to the correct size after printing.


6/24/21

21.7.1

Backspace = Delete now deletes a character instead of depending on the host server to do it.


5/10/21

21.7

Faster typing speed allows devices that use the virtual keyboard to enter data at full speed.
(Barcode readers, Accessibility keyboard panels that enter text with a button click, etc)

The improved typing speed also helps Macs that slow down when previous page options are set to a large number of scroll back pages.

21.6

Fix

Telnet connection with M1 Apple Silicon Macs sometimes would not connect to the server.
Symptom was just a blank screen as if it were not trying to connect.

Some French language alerts had corrupted garbage characters.


12/24/20

21.5.3

If you pasted more than 32768 characters, MacWise would get stuck in a loop and never finish the paste.

Added option to end each line with CR/LF in the Paste Delay options.

115200 baud was listed as 15200 baud in the Settings Menu. Should be 115200 baud.

Mac-To-Host Text Transfer Options window was not remembering the delay between lines and the Wait for this End-of-Line character.
