digitalmars.D.announce - Tilix 1.5.8 released

reply Gerald <gerald.b.nunn gmail.com> writes:
Tilix 1.5.8 is now available with a number of new features and 
bug fixes. For those unfamiliar with Tilix, it is a tiling 
terminal emulator for Linux written in D using GTK3. It attempts 
to follow the Gnome Human Interface Guidelines as closely as 
possible. More information about Tilix is available here:

https://gnunn1.github.io/tilix-web

One word of caution, this version of Tilix has been upgraded to 
using PCRE2 for regular expressions when the VTE version 
indicates it is supported. Unfortunately Ubuntu 17.10 removed 
this functionality from VTE and hence Tilix is broken on 17.10 
until Ubuntu patches Tilix in their distribution. See issue 
[#916](https://github.com/gnunn1/tilix/issues/916) for more 
information.

Other notable changes for this release include:

* Can detach sessions by dragging them off the sidebar to the 
desktop. Can re-attach sessions by dragging them from the sidebar 
to another tilix window
* Can re-order sessions via drag and drop in sidebar or by using 
ctrl-pgup or ctrl-pagedn
* If ctrl-c is assigned to the copy shortcut, tilix is smart 
enough to only copy when text is selected otherwise normal 
interrupt is passed
* Window state is now restored on new launch, i.e. if window is 
maximized and closed it will be maximized when new instance is 
launched
* Added new variable for titles at session scope for active 
terminal title
* Added support for GTK active CSS style to enable better styling 
of terminal titlebars
* Added support for pending VTE hyperlink functionality (#904)

As always, any D developers interested in contributing to Tilix 
are more then welcome to do so. Feel free to contact me if 
interested.

Unfortunately I do not maintain the packages, best course of action would be to drop them a line asking them to update it.

I concur. I've been playing with several terminal emulators these last few weeks and Tilix was the only one combining features, unicode and full color range with speed and not being to CPU and memory hungry; for example Konsole that was the one I've been using these last years was almost always at the top 5 of CPU and memory usage when doing a "top", Tilix usually wayy below.

How difficult would it be to get osx support? I haven't looked at the source code at all so forgive the potentially stupid question. Also, looking​ at the screens - it looks very like tmux - is there any integration there?

In theory it could work but I have no experience with GTK in OSX to say how feasible it is.

Not at the moment, there is an open issue for it. I'd like to do it but I don't use tmux and the lack of documentation around control doesn't help. https://github.com/gnunn1/tilix/issues/480
