iTerm2 3.0.9

Software

The tireless iTerm2 contributers keep pumping out awesomeness. The second point in their 3.0.9 release notes shows especially shows the care and attention they put into this:

- Fix a bug where iTerm2 would hang if a profile’s command terminated quickly, or could not be executed.
- When a profile’s command can’t be executed, print the reason for the failure to the session.
- Fix a bug where you could remember the “cancel” action when prompted about pasting.
- Make Japanese keyboards produce a backslash when Yen is pressed so long as shift is not also pressed.
- When a profile’s command can’t be executed, print the reason for the failure to the session.

I was Terminal.app user with dvtm for years, but iTerm2 won me over with its native (and restorable) tiled terminals. Coupled with the new polished UI and a giant screen, you can’t get much better.
