What's new in Windows Terminal Preview 0.10

Mouse Input

Windows Terminal now supports mouse input in WSL and in the virtual terminal (VT). This makes it possible to use your mouse with apps like Midnight Commander or tmux running in a WSL distro.

If an application is in mouse mode, you can hold down shift to make a selection instead of sending VT input.

Settings Update

Duplicate Pane

You can now open a new pane with a duplicate profile of the pane that is in focus. This can be done by adding "splitMode": "duplicate" to the "splitPane" command list in your key bindings. This key binding will duplicate the profile, but you can add other options such as "commandline", "index", "startingDirectory", and "tabTitle". If you’d like to read more about these key binding options, you can check out this blog post.
