    I found this a couple of weeks ago. It is a improved version of the PuTTy SSH and Telnet client.
    New Features include:
    • New default icon
    • Minimizing to the system tray (on CTRL + minimize, always or directly on startup)
    • (Tray) icon customizable
    • Blinks tray icon when a bell signal is received
    • Configurable window transparency
    • URL hyperlinking
    • Portability: optionally stores session configuration in files (for example: on a USB drive) like portaPuTTY
    • Easy access to the 'always on top' setting (in the system menu)
    • Reconnects when your PC wakes up from stand-by
    • Attempts to reconnect when the connection fails
    Download it here
    To install it you just need to copy the new .exe file over the original.

    I've used PuTTY a lot for some server work. The tray feature is nice because sometimes I'll have more than one window open when I don't really need more than one, then I just end up confused! I like the newer version a lot!

    The most useful new feature for me is being able to store setting in a file rather than the registry. I quite often run PuTTy from my USB drive, so being able to do this is great.
    The only problem with minimising to the tray is that it can be hard to remember which one is which if you have multiple sessions, because the icons are all the same.
