Cool - I'll try to remember to check the changelog in the future.

But again.. wow.  And not in a good way.  Install putty on debian, run
putty, right click on the putty menu bar (title bar?) and the menu is
lacking _anything_ to do with how putty behaves.

Install putty on windows, run putty, right click on the putty menu bar
& there's a 'Change Settings' option that lets me change the font or
font size on the fly, colors, cursor, window size, enable/disable
logging, etc.  Not being able to change things on the fly with the
debian version of putty is .. disappointing at best.
