Windows Terminal v1.4.2652.0 Preview and 1.3 Stable Channel Released
Here is Windows Terminal v1.4.2652.0 Preview and 1.3 changelog –
Terminal v1.4.2652.0 Preview
- Jumplist support is finally available!
- Applications can now generate hyperlinks that you will actually be able to click on!
- This is NOT the same thing as automatic hyperlink detection! We are still working on that one and did not want to ship it until it was damn good and ready.
- Windows Terminal version 1.4 comes with a new version of the Cascadia Code with support for the Salishan language of the Pacific Northwest.
- Cascadia Code 2009.21 is presently unavailable outside of Terminal because of some cross-platform font rendering troubles.
- We made some behind-the-scenes modifications to settings handling in support of our eventual Settings UI.
- In Terminal v1.4.2652.0 Preview channel, the Azure Cloud Shell profile no longer defaults to having acrylic enabled.
- The version now have support for fancy blinking text (SGR 5).
- The latest Terminal 1.4.2652.0 version supports DECSCUSR with the parameter value 0 (\e[0 q) to restore your cursor to the profile’s default.
- C1 control characters, which aren’t actually UTF-8-clean, are better-supported.
- Terminal 1.4.2652.0 Preview will ignore SOS, APC, and PM sequences that it does not understand (which is all of them).
- Latest Windows Terminal version 1.4.2652.0 fixed that weird problem where Vim would occasionally start in REPLACE mode by moving all DSR responses to the tail of the input queue instead of the head.
- Furthermore, Calling FillConsoleOutputCharacterA with an invalid character in codepage 50220 should now return the right error status more often than not.
- Degenerate ranges should stay degenerate, even when they are moved.
- Selecting an out-of-bounds text range via Narrator or NVDA should no longer take Terminal to a nice quiet farm upstate.
- An infrequent deadlock on shutdown has been unlocked, and shutdown should proceed as planned.
Windows Terminal v1.3.2651.0
This release brings all of the preview changes in Windows Terminal 1.3 to the stable channel. Notable changes include:
- A new tab switching experience, on by default. Opt out with “useTabSwitcher”: false.
- The command palette is now bound to Ctrl+Shift+P by default
- All further changes, except those ahead , from Windows Terminal Preview v1.3.2382.0
We’ve also backported the following changes from Windows Terminal Preview v1.4.2652.0:
- 1.3 ONLY: We’ve disabled the togglePaneZoom action for the stable release.
- 1.3 ONLY: We’ve disabled the creation of a fresh process environment block because of a regression in Windows PowerShell.
