Most Linux desktop’s have their own terminal programs, and Xfce is no exception. There’s been a number of releases of xfce4-terminal recently, so I thought I would share some of the changes with people who perhaps haven’t tried it recently.

The biggest change is that it’s been ported to gtk3 and vte291. This is great news as it means it’s no longer using the no longer supported at all ancient version of vte. Unlimited scrollback has been added, wayland support, tons of bug fixes, translation updates, and memory leaks quashed.

Give it a try today and see if it handles all your terminal needs.
