Build 3915 - Improved terminal emulator

Post by mike » Sat Mar 18, 2023 8:53 pm

Hi folks,

The first preview of v1.5.0 brings the long-overdue improvements to the built-in terminal emulator:
  • Much improved support for arbitrary-long Unicode symbols, no limits for combining/joining/variation characters, proper layout based on grapheme clusters etc. Now supports zalgo text, complex emoji and other weirdness;
  • Improved I/O efficiency - NC no longer spawns a thread per each terminal session;
  • Added support for italic text;
  • Full support for 8-bits colours;
  • Partial support for 24-bit colours - they are recognised and dithered into closest available 8-bit color;
  • Improved rendering efficiency.
Also this build contains a fix for the crash that happens when dragging from a temporary panel.

The link to the preview build: ... (3915).dmg

Your feedback is very welcome.
