Improving performance with AES-NI support

Hi,

thanks for the great software!

I'm pretty excited about the AES-NI support, which will be added to PuTTY probably in the next release 0.71. It will be a performance boost because AES decryption/encryption is performed directly by the CPU.

Will there be AES-NI support also in WinSCP?

Regards,
Patrick

Once the next version of PuTTY is released, we'll integrate it into WinSCP.
(As long as the new code can be compiled using our compiler)

AES-NI support

Hi Martin,

Would there not be any reason to include AES-NI support by incorporating the latest development snapshot? Or would this not be good practice?

If you do incorporate it I can test for you.

Regards!

If it was only about adding the new algorithm, I would not mind using a beta version. But as the development code of PuTTY has a lot of ongoing significant changes to the code, I would not dare.
