I strictly limit the MACs, ciphers, and key exchange algorithms on my servers to enforce the best possible security. The relevant section of my sshd_config looks like this:
Apparently, current PuTTY (I use nightly builds--not sure about 0.60) is fine with diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256. WinSCP 5.0.9 is not, and refuses to connect when this kex is enforced. Support for DH-SHA256 would be appreciated.

I definitely plan to upgrade to the more recent PuTTY code. But there has been quite a change in the PuTTY code after 0.62. So the upgrade is not something that can fit into stable branch of WinSCP.
