Windows 11 Running Terminal 1.11.3471.0

Windows Terminal Preview 1.12.3472.0 and stable 1.11.3471.0 are available

Microsoft today updated the  Windows Terminal app, both stable and preview. The Preview channel has got version 1.12.3472.0, while the stable one is now on version 1.11.3471.0. Both releases include a new version of the Cascadia Code font, Cascadia Code 2111.01, and come with a huge list of fixes.

The new Cscadia Code version includes a single fix. The brace ligatures in the italic style will no longer look "totally hilarious and terrible", as noted in its change log.

The remaining changes look as follows.

What's new in Windows Terminal Preview 1.12.3472.0

  • The Default Terminal option will now work on machines that do not have the Visual C++ Redistributable
  • Splitting a non-focused tab will no longer blast Terminal into outer space
  • All of the alternative character set slots have been defaulted to ASCII
    • This is in line with other terminals, and should reduce the incidence of a stray escape character turning your screen into soup.
  • We were seeing some crashes on window painting in the synthetic test lab, which we think we've addressed
  • The background image path should once again be displayed in the settings UI
  • AltGr should once again work in the Settings UI
  • GetConsoleCommandHistoryLengthA will now respond with the correct length
  • Fragments that update multiple profiles will no longer confuse and enrage us
  • There will once again be a window border when you use Win+↓ in fullscreen mode
  • Launching additional applications in "default terminal" windows has been made more reliable
  • The opacity slider once again appears when it should (and disappears when it shouldn't), rather than the other way around
  • Our informational tips will no longer obscure the tabs when showTabsInTitleBar is false
  • We made the mistake of printing hex error codes with negative signs (oops); we've fixed that
  • Shutdown has been made slightly more reliable
  • Detected URLs will no longer be offset by complex unicode characters on the same line
  • On Windows Server, Terminal will no longer render the display in "ransom note" style

As for the stable version, its list of bug fixes a bit shorter.
