Not only is it LION compatible, but the ability to control it with applescript is great. A big improvement over my old terminal program.

This looks like a great alternative to DockLight on Windows.

I look forward to trying it out.

Maybe I will find myself with even fewer reasons to dual-boot my Mac.

This is an excellent piece of software that let my Mac keep in touch with my older equipment better than Terminal did.

Great app. After finding out that Zterm did not work with Snow Leopard and my USB to Serial adapter, I found out about CoolTerm... I use it to configure Cisco devices, and so far it's been working great.
The only problem I found was that I can't recall previous entered commands by pressing the up arrow key.
If this feature was added, then I'd give it 5 stars.

You hit it on the head. The up arrow happens to be necessary for me. I liked everything else about it, but I'll be stuck using screen for a while longer.

Version 1.2.0 support the Up/Down arrows to recall previously typed commands. Set the Terminal Mode to "Line Mode" via the connection settings. This will enable the up/down arrows to recall previous commands and it will give you a popup menu with previous commands as well.

Great little app. Does what it says and useful for those who need this sort of thing. There are still lots of pure serial devices out there, and so for Mac types to try prototyping things this is a great help.
