Note: Icons in settings.json must be written as Windows-style file paths in order for them to appear in the jump list.

We have added hyperlink support for embedded hyperlinks. These links will appear with an underline and can be opened by holding Ctrl and clicking on the link. Support for automatically detecting plain text links is coming very soon!

Support for rendering the blink graphic rendition attribute SGR 5 has been added to Windows Terminal. (Thanks @j4james!) This lets you have fun blinking displays inside the text buffer.

Microsoft today also announced the release of Windows Terminal 1.3 which includes all the features that were available in the Windows Terminal Preview 1.3 preview.
