Changelog for Windows Terminal 1.12.1098

Changed

  • The refreshed Windows 11 UI from the 1.13 preview builds is now available in 1.12!

Fixed Appearance

  • Our Maximize/Restore button is now a fine round boi (#12660)

Accessibility

  • The profile list in the Settings UI now offers tooltips for long profile names (#12448)
  • We’ll automatically focus the window renamer text box when it opens (#12798)
  • High contrast will no longer result in a ridiculous and bad title bar color (#12839)
  • When you delete a color scheme, we’ll move focus back to the color scheme list (#12841)
  • When you delete a profile, we will re-focus the delete button automatically (#12558)
  • Two instances of huge debug log spam with a screen reader connected have been stamped out (#12698) (#12723)

Usability

  • We’ve added some text to the color schemes page indicating that it is for editing–not setting–color schemes (#12663)
    • We’re working to refine how color schemes are set and edited, so stay tuned for future improvements!
  • The retro terminal effect (as well as other shaders) will now work on pre-D3D11 hardware! (#12677)
  • Terminal will once again render properly when you move between different-DPI displays (#12713) (#12749)
  • Resizing the window while a background color or underline is displayed will no longer smear it across the whole screen (#12637) plus a fix for a huge crash that PR introduced (#12853)
  • It took us three releases to get it right, but we’ve finally solved the issue where we’d punch a hole straight through the Terminal when a dialog appeared (#12840)

Reliability

  • Typing an invalid background image path into the Settings UI will no longer send Terminal to a farm upstate (#11542) (thanks @serd2011!)
  • There was an issue on Windows 11 where Terminal would queue up billions of animations while the screen was off; it will now no longer do so (#12820)
  • We’ve fixed crashes in ProposeCommandline (#12838), Monarch::_GetPID (#12856) and other parts of WT’s RPC infrastructure (#12825)
  • On Windows 10, the settings UI will no longer sometimes crash on close (we’ve updated to a new build of WinUI 2 for the fix!) (#12847)

Miscellaneous

  • Windows will no longer reject certain Terminal updates/reinstalls due to “differing package content” (#12779)
  • Fragments can once again override the names of generated profiles (#12627)
  • An issue from the 1073 series, where you could not upgrade the bundle using DISM, has been resolved (#12819)
    • As a result, our bundle version is now over three thousand!
  • @dmezh contributed some wording changes to the text about transparency/opacity (#12592) (#12727) (thanks!)
