What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Due to the slightly changed semantics of Thread.interrupt() and Object.wait() in JDK 6, the code had to be adapted in several places. Please do not use Ganymed SSH-2 build250 on JDK 6, as the Kex and Streamgobbler code may occasionally consume all CPU resources.
