Version 1.19 of Windows Terminal has been released, following version 1.18 which was released in the middle of last year. This update brings several key features, including:
Broadcast Input: Users can now simultaneously type the same command in multiple separate panes within the same tab. This feature has been requested by users of multiple popular terminal programs since 2019.
Emoji Support: Users can now use emojis in their commands, which is particularly important for typing various texts, such as commit messages, that have seen an increase in emoji usage.
Suggestion UI: The system helps users complete commands within Windows Terminal itself. Users can configure frequently used commands, select commands from previously typed ones, and work in collaboration with the shell. Currently, this only supports PowerShell 7.
Other features include the ability to right-click to search for text on the web, and the ability to display an acrylic background even when not actively using that window.
While version 1.19 is still a preview version, it is released alongside version 1.18 which has been previously previewed. The important feature of this update is the ability to detach tabs from the window.
TLDR: Windows Terminal version 1.19 has been released, introducing features such as broadcast input for multiple panes, emoji support in commands, and a suggestion UI for easier command completion. It also includes various other enhancements and improvements.
