Hyper 1.0.0 is here!
Windows support and improved Linux support
We are very excited to announce that we now support Windows – and we're also shipping a first-class Linux version:/pull/946/commits/33844425a9fb094cbcd64a596d813ace96c68d40 – [Thanks @Tyriar] - We rewrote the UI for the tabs in order for them to work with Electron's constraints on Windows and Linux – https://github.com//pull/946/commits/f8a8da645fecc2f7c7e33587bc4b14f267cf9842 – [@CodeTheory] - We added a _hamburguer menu_ so the application menu can be easily accessed – [@CodeTheory + @evilrabbit] #946 and #1058 for more info
Improved internationalization and foreign keyboards support
We are shipping a fix for a very common issue: if you're using a foreign keyboard, such as Portuguese, Norwegian, Swedish etc, you weren't able to type some characters like
~ and so on. That's not the case anymore!
Unicode and emojis
This version comes with an initial fix for issues with special Unicode characters – and Emojis
Customize the look of the active session
- The active
<Term />will receive an
activeCSS class. Therefore, after the rendering, the
.term_activeCSS class will be available. You can use it (and the absence of it) to customize any CSS property for the active split pane – #905 – [@weslleyaraujo]
hyper-simple-highlight-active-sessionfor an example of how to use it.
We are shipping a new Electron version that supports vibrancy on macOS:
- You can choose from a list of available vibrancy types. Make sure to check
hyper-simple-vibrancyfor an example of how to do it – you will need to set a background color with some level of transparency to get a proper vibrancy effect
Further improved developer experience
We have improved the development workflow – we hope that we made easier for you to contribute:
- Instead of using a unified
concurrently, we now have separate
starttasks. This means that Hyper will not fail to boot anymore because Webpack is still working – ed76f4e
- We introduced a
linttask, so you can run only the linter to check if your code style match ours – 332d303
We'd like to thank these 22 contributors for their amazing work on Hyper – they made this release possible!
