For those who are on Lion, and having issues with growl notifications via growl 1.3x, the dev had sent me a work around via the bug reporter, that modifies a plist. Although this is said to be fixed in an up coming update, I have found a much simpler fix that also seems to solve the issue.

NOTE This is for Lion Users only
Download a program called Growl Version Detective
within the program, click on the framework tab.
NOTE be sure item isn't running before continuing to the next step.
locate iterm in the application list and click update FW.
the framework will be updated to 1.3.1, for me this seems to have solved the problem and is much simpler then messing with a plist for those who want quick and easy. Hope this helps!

Please build in something like Visor (For Terminal) in this! I'd love only having to press a hotkey to bring out a Quake style launch for iTerm!

I still use over terminal.app. Why? Two reasons: 1) iterm had tabs before terminal, so I got used to it and it's shortcuts, 2) ability to set "characters considered part of word" in mouse preferences. This allows double clicking on a path or url and getting the whole thing all at once. Sounds like a little thing, but it is one of those little things that makes life so much easier.

I don't understand the transparency issues, perhaps that was with an earlier version. I like being able to turn transparency on and off command-U (or setting a bookmark with always off). More convenient than terminal.app, IMO.

Just a quick query about what this application is capable of.

Is it possible to connect via a serial connection and modem?

I still have a lot of devices which must be managed via serial connections. Because of this, I'm still using ZTerm, which hasn't been developed for quite a few years.

I could do with an alternative and am hopeful that this may be it.

No It doesn't do serial

Once you have installed a serial driver just use terminal and the comand

screen /dev/tty.Keyserial1 9600

substitute /dev/tty.Keyserial1 wit you actual serial device (use ls /dev/ to find its name...

Try man screen for more info on running screen (comes with OSX)

Many thanks for that. It is good to have a clear idea of what can and can't be done.

Doing the serial port connection through terminal is an option, but hardly an ideal one.
I am hoping to find a tool that allows me to save a profile for each device I need to manage.

It can be a real headache to have to re-enter the details of the serial connection each and every time I need to use a serial connection. This is one reason ZTerm is still a tool I use heavily.

iTerm is stable than me and still has some of those missing features that Terminal left off (most notably the tabs change color if activity happens in a hidden tab).

I'm sticking with iTerm. Thanks for continuing development on this great app.

Ok, I'm officially finished with this application.

Nice features, but it's just not stable, and no updates in over a year.

This terminal allows using normal keys (Page-Dn, End etc.) in fullscreen terminal apps (vim, mutt, mc, etc.); overall the keyboard feels more adequate (coming from Linux/FreeBSD, I have to admit). Apple Terminal can be configured(!) to allow this for most keys, but it does not work well for me (10.4/10.5). Therefore, iTerm is often the first application I start and the last I quit.

If I update iTerm to 0.9.5.0915. I'll lost all my preferences. I'm using 0.9.5.0517 and Leopard 10.5.4. In fact I cannot update to any later version than 0.9.5.0517.

iTerm opens all new windows and tabs transparent. Maybe it's just me, but I do not like transparent windows, and have to hit Cmd-U after opening each new tab. The workaround would seem to be to write an AppleScript to open new tabs, but why should I have to go to that trouble to turn off a "feature" that should have been set by global preferences?

You can change the level of transparency in your default profile. 0% transparency means opaque.

Version 0.8.2 appears to eventually go into a state where it takes up over 25% of my CPU when it is sitting idle for some time. Quitting and restarting causes it to settle back down to 4.5% (with top running in its window).

This was not a problem with 0.8.1, to which I am reverting until I get a MacIntel box and have to switch.
