Windows Terminal Tabs And Panes

Changes in the 1.5.3242.0 preview

  • We reverted the tab switcher to in-order, but visible, by default, because we changed your defaults on you so that tab switching was both enabled and in most-recently-used order. I'm sorry about that.
    • To turn the switcher back to MRU order, add the global setting "tabSwitcherMode": "mru".
  • We'd previously said the default value for backgroundImageStretch was uniformToFill, but it was actually fill. We've updated the code to make it uniformToFill.
  • The tab switcher used to occasionally eat custom key bindings and break, but @Don-Vito came through and helped it not do that. Thanks!
  • We accidentally left pane animations enabled sometimes, so we've gone and let you disable them for real
  • Our schema document was super busted because of a stray comma, but @slopra came through and fixed it. Thanks!
  • The [x] button and mouse-based text selection were horked in the command palette. Now they are not.

Changes in the 1.4.3243.0 stable

  • We reverted the tab switcher to off by default, because we changed your defaults on you so that tab switching was both enabled and in most-recently-used order. I'm sorry about that.
    • To turn the switcher back on, in MRU order, add the global setting "useTabSwitcher": true.
  • We'd previously said the default value for backgroundImageStretch was uniformToFill, but it was actually fill. We've updated the code to make it uniformToFill.
  • The tab switcher used to occasionally eat custom key bindings and break, but @Don-Vito came through and helped it not do that.

    This app now requires a useless WIndows input service to run (can be used without it perfectly fine) and will show a nag screen if the service is disabled. To cap it all off, the warning message cannot be disabled. So much for the promise of “openness”. I have stopped upgrading this app, because I won’t allow random people to dictate how I use my PC.
