Windows Terminal gets new features with version 0.11

Microsoft is releasing version 0.11 of Windows Terminal with settings changes and support for non-English language.

The Windows Terminal app to run Command Prompt, PowerShell, and Linux on Windows 10 is getting new features and improvements with version 0.11.

Starting with version 0.11, according to Microsoft, the Terminal is now supported on non-English UI languages, and it ships with a bunch of settings changes. The company is also recommending moving your current settings out of the folder and let the app generate a new one during install, and then copying your settings back.

Windows Terminal settings changes

As part of the Settings changes, in the latest release before shipping version 1.0, the Windows Terminal renames the “profiles.json” to “settings.json” during installation. Cascadia Code is now the default font for all profiles, and app now features a Tango Dark and Tango Light color schemes.

The Copy and Paste commands are bound to Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V, respectively, in the new “settings.json” file. (You can still use Ctrl + Shift + C and Ctrl + Shift + V.)

Starting with this release, the Windows Terminal is changing the default behavior of copying to copy plain text by default. A new global setting has been added called copyFormatting, which is now set to false, but you can change it to true to always copy the HTML and RTF formatting.

Alongside the new changes, version 0.11 is also removing a bunch of settings like Globals namaspace after being deprecated in previous releases. 

Also some other settings have been renamed or replaced. For example, The global setting requestedTheme has been renamed to theme. And the copyTextWithoutNewlines command and the argument trimWhitespace for copy have been removed in favor of the singleLine argument. 

Microsoft is listing the complete set of improvements and fixes for Windows Terminal version 0.11 at the Windows Command Line blog.
