Microsoft open-sources command lines to lure devs

Microsoft open-sources command lines to lure devs

The Windows 10 console, however, does support VT codes, making it much more capable.

The new Windows Terminal aims to deliver a big improvement on the current Command Prompt and PowerShell programmes, and is likely to be used instead of these programmes in the future.

Microsoft has accompanied the announcement of Windows Terminal with a video and a mention in a recently released blog post about "Developing people-centered experiences with Microsoft 365", which goes into further detail about some nifty Visual Studio Code considerations within the application.

One of the most anticipated features is the ability to open tabs for multiple console windows in one Windows Terminal window.

Windows Terminal is now available as an early preview and sports a user interface with tabs and tear-off windows, which Linux and macOS equivalents have had for several years.

Rohit and Suryakumar help Mumbai win over Kolkata by 9 wickets
With KKR needing nothing but a win to keep alive their playoffs chances, Russell's contribution with the bat was a key. While Robin Uthappa scored 40, he could not find his groove and needed as many as 47 balls to score those many runs.

Customisation options in v1.0 of the app provide lots of control over the terminal's appearance and it can be varied by shells/apps/tools.

Microsoft announced at the Build developer conference this week that it's working on a custom Linux kernel that would be integrated into Windows 10 as part of the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2, or WSL 2. On the topic of fonts Windows Terminal uses a GPU accelerated DirectWrite/DirectX-based text rendering engine. Settings are stored in structured text files so that users may tinker with the settings directly. General availability is scheduled for Q4 2019.

"This marks the first time that the Linux kernel will be included as a component in Windows".

The launch will dovetail with a distribution installed through the Windows Store, with a release expected later this year - although Windows Insider users will be able to get preview builds by the end of June. WSL2 is a new version of the architecture that powers the Windows Subsystem for Linux to run ELF64 Linux binaries on Windows.

Microsoft BUILD 2019 began yesterday and will run until Wednesday.
