    This software is generally good, except that it cannot handle Unicode (non ANSI) characters. And it seems like this project is not maintained anymore, unfortunately. No way to open any ticket :(

    Generally, it works ok. The default size of window panes it a little disappointing, and many of the controls are not intuitive. I don't see a way to change preferences, and I had to dig around to find the scripts directory. Direct access to the directory or a way to edit the scripts from within the program would be nice. I would also like to be able to change the window titles, which was possible with the old puttycm. I had a serious problem when I tried to run calc.cmd which came with the program. It went into an endless loop, spawning new command windows. I had to log out of windows to stop it. I'm also not impressed with the way it launches at startup. Where my Putty sessions were, I now see the Putty configuration window. Seeing nothing would be preferable to multiple copies of the configuration window.
