Releases

  • 1.4.4

    dnkl 5 days ago 92 commits to master since this release

    Changed

    • Mouse cursor is now always a left_ptr when inside the margins, to indicate it is not possible to start a selection.

    Fixed

    • Crash when starting a selection inside the margins.
    • Improved font size consistency across multiple monitors with different DPI (#47).
    • Handle trailing comments in footrc
     
  • 1.4.3

    dnkl 1 week ago 101 commits to master since this release

    Added

    • Section to README.md describing how to programmatically identify foot.
    • LICENSE, README.md and CHANGELOG.md are now installed to
      ${datadir}/doc/foot.
    • Support for escaping quotes in pipe-visible and pipe-scrollback commands.

    Changed

    • Primary DA to no longer indicate support for Selective Erase, Technical Characters and Terminal State Interrogation.
    • Secondary DA to report foot as a VT220 instead of a VT420.
    • Secondary DA to report foot’s version number in parameter 2, the Firmware Version. The string is made up of foot’s major, minor and patch version numbers, always using two digits for each version number and without any other separating characters. Thus, 1.4.2 would be reported as 010402 (i.e. the full response would be
      \E[>1;010402;0c).
    • Scrollback search to only move the viewport if the match lies outside it.
    • Scrollback search to focus match, that requires a viewport change, roughly in the center of the screen.
    • Extending a selection with the right mouse button now works while dragging the mouse.

    Fixed

    • Crash in scrollback search.
    • Crash when a pipe-visible or pipe-scrollback command contained an unclosed quote (#49).

  • 1.4.2

    dnkl 1 week ago 133 commits to master since this release

    Changed

    • Maximum window title length from 100 to 2048.

    Fixed

    • Crash when overwriting a sixel and the row being overwritten did not cover an entire cell.
    • Assertion failure in debug builds when overwriting a sixel image.
     
  • 1.4.1

    dnkl 1 week ago 141 commits to master since this release

    Fixed

    • Compilation errors in release builds with some combinations of compilers and compiler flags.
     
  • 1.4.0

    dnkl 1 week ago 147 commits to master since this release

    Added

    • Sync to terminfo. This is a tmux extension that indicates “Synchronized Updates” are supported.
    • --hold command line option to footclient.
    • Key mapping for KP_Decimal.
    • Terminfo entries for keypad keys: ka1, ka2, ka3, kb1, kb3, kc1, kc2, kc3, kp5, kpADD, kpCMA, kpDIV, kpDOT, kpMUL, kpSUB and kpZRO.
    • blink option to footrc; a boolean that lets you control whether the cursor should blink or not by default. Note that applications can override this.
    • Multi-seat support
    • Implemented C0::FF (form feed)
    • pipe-visible and pipe-scrollback key bindings. These let you pipe either the currently visible text, or the entire scrollback to external tools (#29). Example: pipe-visible=[sh -c "xurls | bemenu | xargs -r firefox] Control+Print

    Changed

    • Background transparency to only be used with the default background color.
    • Copy-to-clipboard/primary-selection to insert a line break if either the last cell on the previous line or the first cell on the next line is empty.
    • Number of lines to scroll is now always clamped to the number of lines in the scrolling region..
    • New terminal windows spawned with ctrl+shift+n are no longer double forked.
    • Unicode combining character overflow errors are only logged when debug logging has been enabled.
    • OSC 4 (Set Color) now updates already rendered cells, excluding scrollback.
    • Mouse cursor from hand2 to left_ptr when client is capturing the mouse.
    • Sixel images are now removed when the font size is decreased.
    • DECSCUSR (Set Cursor Style, CSI Ps SP q) now uses Ps=0 instead of Ps=2 to reset the style to the user configured default style. Ps=2 now always configures a Steady Block cursor.
    • Se terminfo capability from \E[2 q to \E[ q.
    • Hollow cursor to be drawn when window has lost keyboard focus rather than visual focus.

    Fixed

    • Do not stop an ongoing selection when shift is released. When the client application is capturing the mouse, one must hold down shift to start a selection. This selection is now finalized only when the mouse button is released - not as soon as shift is released.
    • Selected cells did not appear selected if programmatically modified.
    • Rare crash when scrolling and the new viewport ended up exactly on the wrap around.
    • Selection handling when viewport wrapped around.
    • Restore signal mask in the client process.
    • Set IUTF8.
    • Selection of double-width characters. It is no longer possible to select half of a double-width character.
    • Draw hollow block cursor on top of character.
    • Set an initial TIOCSWINSZ. This ensures clients never read a 0x0 terminal size (#20).
    • Glyphs overflowing into surrounding cells (#21).
    • Crash when last rendered cursor cell had scrolled off screen and \E[J3 was executed.
    • Assert (debug builds) when an \e]4 OSC escape was not followed by a ;.
    • Window title always being set to “foot” on reset.
    • Terminfo entry kb2 (center keypad key); it is now set to \EOu (which is what foot emits) instead of the incorrect value \EOE.
    • Palette re-use in sixel images. Previously, the palette was reset after each image.
    • Do not auto-resize a sixel image for which the cllent has specified a size. This fixes an issue where an image would incorrectly overflow into the cell row beneath.
    • Text printed, or other sixel images drawn, on top of a sixel image no longer erases the entire image, only the part(s) covered by the new text or image.
    • Sixel images being erased when printing text next to them.
    • Sixel handling when resizing window.
    • Sixel handling when scrollback wraps around.
    • Foot now issues much fewer wl_surface_damage_buffer() calls (#35).
    • C0::VT to be processed as C0::LF. Previously, C0::VT would only move the cursor down, but never scroll.
    • C0::HT (Horizontal Tab, or \t) no longer clears LCF (Last Column Flag).
    • C0::LF now always clears LCF. Previously, it only cleared it when the cursor was not at the bottom of the scrolling region.
    • IND and RI now clears LCF.
    • DECAWM now clears LCF.
    • A multi-column character that does not fit on the current line is now printed on the next line, instead of only printing half the character.
    • Font size can no longer be reduced to negative values (#38).

    The following people helped with this release:

     
  • 1.3.0

    dnkl 2 months ago 436 commits to master since this release

    Added

    • User configurable key- and mouse bindings. See man 5 foot and the example footrc (#1)
    • initial-window-mode option to footrc, that lets you control the initial mode for each newly spawned window: windowed, maximized or fullscreen.
    • app-id option to footrc and --app-id command line option, that sets the app-id property on the Wayland window.
    • title option to footrc and --title command line option, that sets the initial window title.
    • Right mouse button extends the current selection.
    • CSI Ps ; Ps ; Ps t escape sequences for the following parameter: 11t, 13t, 13;2t, 14t, 14;2t, 15t, 19t.
    • Unicode combining characters.

    Changed

    • Spaces no longer removed from zsh font name completions.
    • Default key binding for spawn-terminal to ctrl+shift+n.
    • Renderer is now much faster with interactive scrolling (#4)
    • memfd sealing failures are no longer fatal errors.
    • Selection to no longer be cleared on resize.
    • The current monitor’s subpixel order (RGB/BGR/V-RGB/V-BGR) is preferred over FontConfig’s rgba property. Only if the monitor’s subpixel order is unknown is FontConfig’s rgba property used. If the subpixel order is none, then grayscale antialiasing is used. The subpixel order is ignored if antialiasing has been disabled.
    • The four primary font variants (normal, bold, italic, bold italic) are now loaded in parallel. This speeds up both the initial startup time, as well as a DPI changes.
    • Command line parsing no longer tries to parse arguments following the command-to-execute. This means one can now write foot sh -c true instead of foot -- sh -c true.

    Removed

    • Keyboard/pointer handler workarounds for Sway 1.2.

    Fixed

    • Sixel images moved or deleted on window resize.
    • Cursor sometimes incorrectly restored on exit from alternate screen.
    • ‘Underline’ cursor being invisible on underlined text.
    • Restored cursor position in ‘normal’ screen when window was resized while in ‘alt’ screen.
    • Hostname in OSC 7 URI not being validated.
    • OSC 4 with multiple c;spec pairs.
    • Alt+Return to emit “ESC \r”.
    • Trackpad sloooow scrolling to eventually scroll a line.
    • Memory leak in terminal reset.
    • Translation of cursor coordinates on resize
    • Scaling color specifiers in OSC sequences.
    • OSC 12 ? to return the cursor color, not the cursor’s text color.
    • OSC 12;#000000 to configure the cursor to use inverted foreground/background colors.
    • Call ioctl(TIOCSCTTY) on the pts fd in the slave process.

    dnkl 5 months ago 775 commits to master since this release

    Added

    • Run-time text resize using ctrl-+, ctrl-- and ctrl-0
    • Font size adjusts dynamically to outputs’ DPI
    • Reflow text when resizing window
    • pad option to footrc
    • login-shell option to footrc and --login-shell command line option
    • Client side decorations (CSDs). This finally makes foot usable on GNOME.

    • REP CSI escape sequence
    • oc to terminfo
    • foot-server.desktop file
    • Window and cell size reporting escape sequences
    • --hold command line option
    • --print-pid=FILE|FD command line option

    Changed

    • Subpixel antialiasing is only enabled when background is opaque
    • Meta/alt ESC prefix can now be disabled with \E[?1036l. In this mode, the 8:th bit is set and the result is UTF-8 encoded. This can also be disabled with \E[?1024l (in which case the Alt key is effectively being ignored).
    • terminfo now uses ST instead of BEL as OSC terminator
    • Logging prints to stderr, not stdout
    • Backspace now emits DEL (^?), and ctrl+backspace emits BS (^H)

    Removed

    • ‘28’ from DA response
     
  • 1.1.0

    dnkl 6 months ago 1082 commits to master since this release

    Lots of changes, improvements and bug fixes

    • Implemented blinking cursor. This can be enabled in the

    • Block cursor rendered as a hollow rectangle when window is unfocused
    • Fixes to the zsh completions
    • UTF-8 locale is now enforced
    • Speed improvements to the VT parser. Small cache CPUs benefit the most.
    • Added support for OSC 7; this allows the client (shell) to inform

    • Set ‘RGB’ flag in the terminfo.
    • Differentiate between visual focus and keyboard focus.
    • When background is opaque, inform the compositor about this.
    • Implemented block selections (press ctrl and drag mouse).
    • Speed improvements when client turns on and off mouse tracking very
      fast (for example, ‘less’ with mouse tracking enabled).
