Terminology 0.3 has been released, which is the Enlightenment project's own terminal emulator built atop EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Library) components. Terminology is written from scratch and with its v0.3 release it boasts some truly original and innovative features for this terminal emulator. There's embedded support for previewing videos/images and other new inline capabilities.

Enlightenment's Terminology 0.3 introduces support for splits, tabs, and inlined videos and images. Besides just videos and image files, there's also support within this terminal emulator for SVG and PDF files.

There's also better color customization support for the terminal emulator, support for dragging and dropping links/texts, many keybinding accelerators, and new escape sequence handling.

For showing off the unique Terminology capabilities, there's a few new command-line tools like tyls, tycat, typop, tyq,tybg, and tyalpha. Rather than explaining all of the features, embedded below is a video that shows off Enlightemnet's Terminology 0.3 with new features like previewing video files from a list of files and handling other multimedia types.

The Terminology 0.3 release announcement can be found at Enlightenment.org. Other features to this original EFL terminal emulator can be found on its about page.
