MacWise - Macintosh Terminal Emulation - telnet / serial for OS X - Wyse, Viewpoint, VT100, VT220

MacWise Version 11.51

Universal version of MacWise runs natively on Intel and Power PC Macs.

December 8, 2008

Fix - The Scroll Bar was intermittently getting disabled and dimmed.
This happened when any data was sent to the screen causing the scroll bar to move while MacWise was in the background. The symptom commomly occured when MacWise was in the background and the host timed out the telnet session, sending the "connection closed by foreign host" message and causing the scroll bar to move.

Leopard note: If you have not upgraded to Leopard but are planning to do it soon, your old version of MacWise may not work with Leopard. MacWise versions prior to 10.9.17 will not run at all with Leopard. MacWise version 11 is fully Leopard compatible.
Also, MacWise versions prior to version 11 ran under Rosetta emulation on Intel Macs.
MacWise version 11 is Intel and PowerPC native (universal binary).
The current version of MacWise is 11.41
