PuTTY 0.62 released

PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Windows and
Unix platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator. It is written
and maintained primarily by Simon Tatham.

PuTTY 0.62 is a bug-fix release: it contains fixes for eight bugs
present in 0.61, and otherwise the two versions do not differ. Most of
the changes in the current development snapshots are not included in
this code.

One of the bugs is a SECURITY FIX, so if it affects you, you should
update now:

 - PuTTY 0.62 fixes a security issue present in 0.59, 0.60 and 0.61.
   If you log in using SSH-2 keyboard-interactive authentication
   (which is the usual method used by modern servers to request a
   password), the password you type was accidentally kept in PuTTY's
   memory for the rest of its run, where it could be retrieved by
   other processes reading PuTTY's memory, or written out to swap
   files or crash dumps.

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
