The preview build of Windows Terminal for this month is out, and it brings Terminal to version 0.9. It is also the final version that will see new features ahead of the 1.0 release.
Which appears to be right around the corner.
Redmond posted a changelog that details all the new features and improvements that are part of this latest update to the command line application. And there are two big additions, namely Command Line Arguments and Auto-Detect Power Shell.
For the former, you now have the ability to launch Terminal with new tabs and panes split just as you like, with the profiles you prefer, and even in the directories you want.
The possibilities, as Microsoft notes, are endless.
And if you are big into PowerShell Core, then there is good news here as well. That is because Windows Terminal will now detect any version of PowerShell and automatically start a profile for you. The version that it deems looks best will take the slot of the original PowerShell Core in the dropdown.
Another nice new addition is the ability to Confirm Close All Tabs, which comes in handy for those of you who like to close all of your tabs without being asked all the time.
There are a bunch of other improvements here too include accessibility and the ability to drag and drop a file into the Terminal window and have its file path printed.
A few bugs are also in the mix.
