PTP/new and noteworthy/9.2.0
The following are new features that are available in PTP 9.2, Photran 9.2, and Remote 3.0.
The Parallel package has been renamed "Eclipse IDE for Scientific Computing"
Remote support available for secure sites
Some sites limit the number of SSH channels that are available. These sites often do not enable SFTP either. To enable remote operations in these environments, a new java-based agent has been provided. This agent provides a multiplexed communications channel and emulates all file operations directly from the java agent. The agent is downloaded and launched automatically via a single SSH connection.
