I wanted to post a quick update regarding support for SecureCRT/SecureFX on the Ubuntu 20.4 platform.

There are currently no plans to make 8.7.x supported on the Ubuntu 20.4 platform, although a known workaround exists that may help you get v8.7.x working on Ubuntu 20.

However, SecureCRT/SecureFX 9.0 will be supported on Ubuntu 20.04. If you are interested in trying out version 9.0, you can download the installer for Ubuntu 20.04 as per the information in this updated post:
Note that with alpha/beta versions you should be aware of the following caveats:
  1. Alpha/Beta builds will expire in less than 90 days
  2. Alpha/Beta builds may expire in 30 days if your license isn't eligible for registration of any newer versions (e.g. if your license is older than 1 year or 3 years, if you have a 3-year license); also understand that even if your license is eligible to register the alpha/beta version, there is no guarantee that it will still be eligible to register the next *official* (non-beta) release if its release date occurs after your license eligibility period has expired.

Support for Ubuntu 20.04 is planned for inclusion in SecureCRT version 9.0, which is currently slated for official public release some time before the end of 2020.

If you would like to be notified by email when any newer version of SecureCRT becomes available, you can subscribe to our product announcement mailing list:

Hi all,

Please note version 9.0 is a beta release now and is available on the website here.

When version 9.0 becomes the official release, it will be available here.
