Here is the changelog –

- The original equipment manufacturers and system integrators who are willing to pre-packaging Windows Terminal with a Windows image are given a preinstallation kit.
- ou can see the details here – DISM documentation on preinstallation. If you don’t have an intention to pre-install Windows Terminal you should keep using the msixbundle distribution.
- The developers have also backported the underneath features, changes, and bug fixes from Windows Terminal Preview 1.11.2421.0:
- You can now delete autogenerated profiles, that just about says it all, sorry for taking so long on this one! (#11007) (#10910).
- Bold or “intense” text can now be displayed as bright colors, a bold font, or both (#10759).
- We released 1.10 with the new default set to both bold and bright, but have reset it to just bright until we work out some text rendering issues (#10958).
- Set intenseTextStyle (flag enum, default bright, options bold, bright, all) in any profile.
- Windows Terminal Preview v1.10.2383.0 ships with Cascadia Code 2108.26, which contains fixes for some ligature issues, Hebrew glyph positioning, and more.
- In the settings UI, we’ve changed multiple tooltips to replace “checked” (as in, a checkbox) to “enabled” because they are toggle switches now (#10885).
- The console (and terminal) will no longer hold on to large memory allocations after large I/O requests (#10738).
- Windows Terminal Preview v1.10.2383.0 now loads WSL distributions in a different way, and will not hang on startup waiting for them (#10967).
