    Default GNOME Terminal Gets Text Rewrap On Resizing

    Phoronix: GNOME Terminal Gets Text Rewrap On Resizing

    GNOME 3.12 is looking exciting because of continued Wayland improvements and other desktop work, but we've now found out that the GNOME Terminal is receiving some love in the GNOME 3.12 cycle...

    rxvt has had this feature for years. It's one of those features you only miss when it's gone, and it's the primary reason I've been sticking with rxvt ever since.

    Now there's finally a second terminal with this feature.

    Give it a couple of decades, and maybe by then konsole and the cygwin terminal will have followed.

    Cool

    Im glad to see gnome developers finally putting features in, instead of taking them out. Does anybody know if they'll bring back transparency to gnome terminal soon?

    Finally!! I agree with rohcQaH. I never knew how useful this was until I started using a Mac. However, this also brings a few more issues like some lines not getting updated in some cases.

    Not quite sure what you mean here since transparency has never been taken away.

    ..or you just are mistaken

    Gnome 3.8 removed transparency and some other features from gnome-terminal. I was going to post a link to the bugzilla report - but it's getting an internal error / not working. Regardless, it's _even_ on wikipedia (lulz); http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNOME_Terminal#Background

Translucent backgrounds are desired because the user can read text behind the terminal while entering commands into the command line. In Gnome Terminal 3.8 and onwards the option for a transparent background was removed.[8]
    ..But maybe you are using Ubuntu (or another distro patching it) and just aren't aware of the situation. [Ubuntu /possibly others are patching patching 'post-3.8 releases' of gnome-terminal [so am i]. (Ubuntu gnome-terminal-3.8.0 change log); https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+...-archive-extra

    * note the 02_add_transparency_properties.patch under 'debian/patches'.

    Good question! It is one reason I don't use it anymore. No transparency for a 2013 terminal? It's a joke?

    An asking feature 9 years old and present on all modern OS: preview picture in file chooser, Windows have this feature for windows 95! https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141154, shame...
