kitty for Mac0.22.0

27 July 2021

GPU-accelerated terminal emulator.

What is kitty for Mac

kitty is a fast, featureful, GPU based terminal emulator

Highlights:
  • Offloads rendering to the GPU for lower system load and buttery smooth scrolling. Uses threaded rendering to minimize input latency
  • Supports all modern terminal features: graphics (images), unicode, true-color, OpenType ligatures, mouse protocol, focus tracking, bracketed paste and several new terminal protocol extensions
  • Supports tiling multiple terminal windows side by side in different layouts without needing to use an extra program like tmux
  • Can be controlled from scripts or the shell prompt, even over SSH
  • Has a framework for Kittens, small terminal programs that can be used to extend kitty's functionality. For example, they are used for Unicode input, Hints and Side-by-side diff
  • Supports startup sessions which allow you to specify the window/tab layout, working directories and programs to run on startup
  • Cross-platform: kitty works on Linux and macOS, but because it uses only OpenGL for rendering, it should be trivial to port to other Unix-like platforms
  • Allows you to open the scrollback buffer in a separate window using arbitrary programs of your choice. This is useful for browsing the history comfortably in a pager or editor
  • Has multiple copy/paste buffers, like vim

What's new in kitty

Version 0.22.0:
  • Add a new toggle_layout action to easily zoom/unzoom a window
  • When right clicking to extend a selection, move the nearest selection boundary rather than the end of the selection. To restore previous behavior use mouse_map right press ungrabbed mouse_selection move-end.
  • When opening hyperlinks, allow defining open actions for directories (#3836)
  • When using the OSC 52 escape code to copy to clipboard allow large copies (up to 8MB) without needing a kitty specific chunking protocol. Note that if you used the chunking protocol in the past, it will no longer work and you should switch to using the unmodified protocol which has the advantage of working with all terminal emulators.
  • Fix a bug in the implementation of the synchronized updates escape code that could cause incorrect parsing if either the pending buffer capacity or the pending timeout were exceeded (#3779)
  • A new remote control command to resize the OS Window
  • Graphics protocol: Add support for composing rectangles from one animation frame onto another (#3809)
  • diff kitten: Remove limit on max line length of 4096 characters (#3806)
  • Fix turning off cursor blink via escape codes not working (#3808)
  • Allow using neighboring window operations in the stack layout. The previous window is considered the left and top neighbor and the next window is considered the bottom and right neighbor (#3778)
  • macOS: Render colors in the sRGB colorspace to match other macOS terminal applications (#2249)
  • Add a new variable {num_window_groups} for the tab_title_template (#3837)
  • Wayland: Fix initial_window_width/height specified in cells not working on High DPI screens (#3834)
  • A new theme for the kitty website with support for dark mode.
  • Render ┄ ┅ ┆ ┇ ┈ ┉ ┊ ┋ with spaces at the edges. Matches rendering in most other programs and allows long chains of them to look better (#3844)
  • hints kitten: Detect paths and hashes that appear over multiple lines. Note that this means that all line breaks in the text are no longer n soft breaks are instead r. If you use a custom regular expression that is meant to match over line breaks, you will need to match over both. (#3845)
  • Allow leading or trailing spaces in tab_activity_symbol
  • Fix mouse actions not working when caps lock or num lock are engaged (#3859)
  • macOS: Fix automatic detection of bold/italic faces for fonts that use the family name as the full face name of the regular font not working (#3861)
  • clipboard kitten: fix copies to clipboard not working without the kitty +kitten clipboard --wait-for-completion option
