    New Windows Terminal v1.6.10571.0 released for Windows 10 - March 1

    Posted: 01 Mar 2021
    This release brings all of the preview changes in Windows Terminal 1.6 to the stable channel. Notable changes include:

    • Experimental support for HLSL pixel shaders
    • Italic text (SGR 3), OSC 9;4 progress reports and OSC 9;9 CWD reports

    Please see the following release notes for additional details:

    A preinstallation kit is available for system integrators and OEMs interested in prepackaging Windows Terminal with a Windows image. More information is available in the DISM documentation on preinstallation. Users who do not intend to preinstall Windows Terminal should continue using the msixbundle distribution.

    We've also backported the following changes and bug fixes from Windows Terminal Preview v1.7.572.0:

    • 1.6 stable only: The settings UI has been disabled for this stable release so that we can continue to iterate on it.
    • This version of Terminal comes with Cascadia Code 2102.25, which contains a number of bug fixes to the 2102.03 release.
    • The tab bell icon will now show up even when visual belling is disabled (#9212)

    Bug Fixes
    • You can now navigate the tab color picker with the directional arrows (thanks @BenConstable9!) (#9144)
    • We will try not to dismiss the selection when you're using a Windows-key shortcut (thanks @imaginary-person!) (#9163)
    • We've ensured that hyperlinks de-underline when the pointer leaves the terminal (thanks @Don-Vito!) (#9195)
    • The arrow keys should work in the tab switcher once more (thanks @Don-Vito!) (#9140)
    • The build system was leaving a stray 600kb file in our package, which we've now removed (making the package smaller!) (#9153)
    • Focus should now return to the terminal after you dismiss the tab rename field (thanks @Don-Vito!) (#9162)

    • Narrator will no longer repeat the key binding twice when reading the command palette (#9234)
    • 1.6 preview totally broke the command palette being read by Narrator; that is now fixed! (#9143)
    • 1.6 preview regressed tab headers being read by Narrator; this is also now fixed! (#9258)
    • Command palette items that open submenus now have an audible "help text" that mentions this fact (#9262)
