At Build 2019, Microsoft announced the new Windows Terminal for Windows 10 users. Last night the Windows Terminal showed up on the Microsoft Store but was not available for download.
Now, Microsoft has published an official post confirming the release of Windows Terminal. This will be the first of the several Windows Terminal releases. At this point, the Terminal is in preview and Microsoft has set winter of 2019 as the deadline for the Terminal 1.0 release.
The new Terminal app comes with several new features such as multiple tab support, GPU accelerated DirectWrite/DirectX-based text rendering engine, support for many settings and configuration options that allows users to personalize Terminal’s appearance and more.
If you’re running Windows 10 then you can download Windows Terminal from the Microsoft Store below. Microsoft has made the new Terminal open source so you can head to GitHub and contribute to the development of the app.
