    After more than two weeks in "Export Compliance" limbo followed by "In Review" hell, Apple has finally approved iSSH 2.0.

    In particular, this version features a couple of additional monospace fonts not found on a standard iPhone install. This version also has text zooming capabilities.

    This new version includes:

    -- Text pinch zoom
    -- Connection status information and debugs
    -- Three selectable monospaced fonts
    -- Transparent keyboard
    -- Improved key exchange support, which includes DSA and RSA at user
    configured key sizes, as well as emailing of of public keys
    -- Telnet and raw socket connections

    Version 2.1 is nearly due--expect it to include:
    -- Tunnelled VNC
    -- PgUp/PgDown keys
    -- More options related to "full screen" modes and keyboard
    transparency.
    -- PIN lockdown along with password and key caching
    -- Automatic connection restoration (I mean it this time.. needed the
    password caching stuff active first!)

    possibly stupid question... will this app let you SSH into the iPhone's file system to change things like SMS tones (like you can do by SSHing a jailbroken phone)?

    This would violate Apple's terms for software in the store. It is simply a SSH, Telnet and raw client--with plans for VNC and an XServer.

    Thanks

    Just updated which was easy. Hoped my key would transfer over when updating so I wouldn't have to enter details again. It did.

    Still checking everything out now but so far I see a great app just got greater.

    Awesome! 2.0 is great update. 1.x was the start of something good but with 2.0 it's completely useful for all my purposes.
