GNOME Terminator project is an attempt to maximise useful space on a given desktop for terminals. I'm a sysadmin by trade, so I live in ssh sessions and thus terminals. An extra line here and there over all those hours seems like it's worth trying for.
NOTE: At least zsh doesn't work in Terminator at the moment. Bash does for me and I am investigating the causes
This is a pretty simple python script which places multiple vte widgets in a window. That's the same widget used by gnome-terminal. At the moment I haven't cloned all gnome-terminal behaviours, so there are unexpected and bugful behaviours.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Today brings the first release for some time, with a variety of bug fixes and a few little new features. Much of this work came from community contributors, for which I am hugely grateful.
· I don't expect the release frequency to increase a huge amount though - Terminator does most of the things I really need.
· If you find it's not doing what you need, and you have the skills to make it do those things, please consider making it happen!
