A new version of tilix has been released. For those not familiar 
with it, Tilix is a terminal emulator for Linux written in D 
using GTK. The list of changes is available here:

https://gnunn1.github.io/tilix-web/2018/04/28/release-1-7-9

As always, I'm always looking for people who are interested in 
contributing, PRs welcome.

Finally a big thank you to Mike Wey who has continued to work on 
and evolve GtkD. Working on libraries is often behind the scenes 
work that doesn't get the appreciation it deserves.

I was struck by a recent reddit post on the gnome shell memory 
leak which involved C and javascript, it mentioned how difficult 
it is to merge two different memory models. Mike has managed this 
with aplomb in terms of integrating the Gtk reference counting 
into D's GC. So thanks Mike, your efforts are much appreciated!

Since I'm on Windows I sadly can't use it, but I suggested it to my colleagues - which are using Ubuntu - half a year ago and they use it since then and still love it. So keep up the good work! :)

No no, the deal is, you Windows people switch to Linux if you suddenly feel like a terminal is a basic need. ;) https://linuxmint.com/ https://manjaro.org/ https://www.ubuntu.com/ https://www.debian.org/ https://solus-project.com/ https://elementary.io/ https://antergos.com/ https://getfedora.org/ https://www.trueos.org/ (FreeBSD) https://mxlinux.org/ -- Marco

I used it for more than year but after switching OS / re-installation I used the OS's terminal for a while. Now I'm back on Tilix. I am delighted. It's more fun this way.
