@nviennot nviennot released this Nov 16, 2019

New Features:

  • Add support for named sessions. Run tmate with tmate -k api_key -n session_name -r session_name_ro to name sessions. See
  • Add a foreground mode with tmate -F. This is useful when tmate is used only for remote access. See
  • Add SSH key access control. Run tmate with -a authorized_keys or set tmate-authorized-keys in the tmate configuration file. This will allow access to tmate to only SSH clients with keys contained in the authorized keys file. See
  • SSH keys are no longer needed to use tmate

Bug fixes:

  • Fix reconnection bug due to misconfigured keepalives

Existing feature changes:

  • Tmux configuration file ~/.tmux.conf is no longer loaded.. You may add source-file ~/.tmux.conf in ~/.tmate.conf to retain the older behavior. Discussion can be found in #108
  • Initial connection strings are now shown in a separate window at start time
