Microsoft launched Windows Terminal, a command-line app for Windows that supersedes the company’s original command-line user experience, the Windows console host.
Windows Terminal offers support for tabs, rich text, globalization, configurability, theming & styling, and more.
The limitations of the original console host, which was aimed at maintaining backward compatibility, led the Microsoft team to develop the new terminal that added community-requested features, according to the company.
In addition to having a modernized codebase, Windows Terminal’s logical entities are separated into modules and classes, new key extensibility points are available, and home-grown collections and containers are replaced with safer, more efficient STL containers.
