  • WebSocket Fixed so that if corrupt data is received (i.e. bytes that do not conform to the WebSocket framing protocol), then the connection is closed as per the WebSocket standard.
  • OAEP Added the OapeMgfHash property to the Email, Crypt2, Mime, and Rsa classes.

  • StreamConnector/Crypt2 Fixed Crypt2.DecryptStream for cases in .NET when a StreamConnector is used.
  • AuthAws Fixed AWS authentication for Amazon SES.
  • Jwe Fixed problem with RSA-OAEP-256. Also added support for RSA-OAEP-384 and RSA-OAEP-512
  • Rest Added the ConnectTimeoutMs property.
  • MailMan Added the LogMailReceivedFilename property to log a POP3 conversation to a file in real-time.
  • PHP Added thread-safe builds for PHP 7.2 (as opposed to only supporting NTS builds).
  • SFTP Added the XferByteCount property to allow for applications to access the current upload or download transfer byte count for ongoing asynchronous transfers.
  • SSH/SFTP Added the ServerIdentifier property.

  • CkHashtable Fixed crash bug in the AddFromXmlSb method.
  • Email Added a method named ApplyFixups. (Read more about it in the online reference documentation.)
  • SshKey Added support for the EC key format used by openssl. (No coding changes required, Chilkat automatically recognizes the key format when loading/parsing.)

  • SecureString Added the SecureString class to help keep passwords encrypted in memory.
  • Crypt2 Added the DecryptSecureENC and EncryptSecureENC methods.
  • Imap Added the LoginSecure method.
