  • The new tab button can now be coupled with Alt to open a split pane with the default profile
  • Key events without a scancode, the likes of which are predominantly generated by software or keyboards with dead keys, no longer result in spurious input
  • There have been some minor improvements in the way that we render RTL text
  • Some of you like to use arrow keys instead of HJK and L, so we made sure that they are properly sent to applications in W32 mode
