Windows Terminal v1.12.1073 is here and the new version brings some significant changes as well as several notable bug fixes that were there in Terminal v1.12.

With this release, the Windows Terminal now comes in two flavors, one for Windows 11 only and the other one for Windows 10 and 11. As such the Windows 11-only package is much smaller, around half the size of the other. Just in case you install the Windows 10-11 version on Windows 11, it will automatically upgrade to the Windows 11 one on its own so you can opt for either in case you are on 11.

Moving on, here are the bug fixes in this release:

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)

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)

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)

Rendering

  • Font axes/features once again work across a DPI change (#12492)
