Microsoft has made available version 1.14 for its Windows Terminal application as a preview. This release is a small update that includes a new experimental background image for windows, new actions, and various bug fixes.
In addition, the company has increased the system requirements for version 1.13 and higher releases, which means that your device will need to have Windows 10 2004 or higher to install version 1.14.
Starting with Terminal version 1.14, you can now set one background image for the entire window when in split mode. In the past, you needed to configure a different image for each pane on the window.
You can enable this feature with the
"experimental.useBackgroundImageForWindow": true global setting that applies the focused profile’s background image to your entire window.
As part of the new actions, you can now select all the text in the buffer by using the
selectAll action, which is bound to Ctrl + Shift + A keyboard shortcut by default.
Also, according to the company, this release improves applications running in windowed mode from the Terminal. For example, ConPTY can now handle show/hide window calls. Windows created by console applications now appear above the Terminal. And focus events are now sent through VT input.
Furthermore, tabs, scrollbar, new tab button, caption buttons, color picker, settings UI, command palette, and search box have been updated to match the Windows 11 design language. And the Terminal is now aware of toggled state for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and Num Lock.
