Features: (new) Windows Terminal

  • Cross Env: The new Windows Terminal is designed to be an access point for all sorts of different command-line environments since it works with Cmd, PowerShell, and the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
  • 📑 Multi-tab Support: Yes, multi-tabs is now a reality which is a welcomed feature in any terminal app. Gotta have that.
  • 📟 GPU accelerated DirectWrite/DirectX-based text rendering including CJK ideograms, powerline symbols, icons, programming ligatures, etc. Boy this is awesome.
  • 👌 Emoji Support: Woohoo! Super happy about this.
  • 🎨 Themes & Customizations: The video showcased clearly represents the fact that this new Windows Terminal will be themeable as well as customizable — both fundamentally important features for developers. I look forward to creating a 🦄 Shades of Purple theme for this one.
