What's new and improved in Windows Terminal v1.12.1073

Usability

  • Terminal can once again be configured as a startup application, and can be detected by tools like PowerToys (#12491)
  • There was a puzzling "Element not found" error during settings loading; there is no longer such an error (#12687)
  • Terminal will no longer mix up profiles when it is launched in response to a console application spawning (#12484)
  • Formatted copy will now try harder to preserve Unicode charatcers in RTF (#12586) (thanks @ianjoneill!)
  • We have replaced the word "Summon" with "Show/Hide" in the command palette for improved localization (#12603)
  • Our confidence in the settings UI's Save button has led to us no longer backing up the settings JSON file (#12652)

Reliability

  • We won't crash any longer if you give us a command line that is a directory (#12538) (thanks @ianjoneill!)
  • A crash on launch related to multi-windowing and the default terminal setting has been quashed (subset of #12205)
  • Fixed a crash setting the hotkey during teardown (#12580)
  • Fixed a different pair of crashes, also likely related to default terminal handoff (#12666)
  • ScrollConsoleScreenBuffer no longer takes the console upstate (#12669)
  • Pressing Page Up or Page Down with an empty command palette, which seemed like a reasonable thing to do, was taught to not crash the Terminal (#12528)

Accessibility

  • Terminal now announces newly-printed text to any attached screen reader (#12358)
  • Command palette search now tries to announce the number of results to the screen reader (#12429)

Rendering
