Similar to global hotkey Win+C, but hotkey wouldn't work if ConEmu was not been started yet. These keys may be used for a desktop shortcut.
  • New ConEmu.exe argument - /dir "Folder". Same as ‘Working folder’ in shortcut properties.
  • Added ‘Quake style slide down’ switch on the ‘Features’ page. Sample settings are in ‘ConEmu\ConEmu_Tilde.xml’ (something like this). Rename sample ‘ConEmu_Tilde.xml’ to ‘ConEmu.xml’, run ConEmu on startup with /min switch, and ConEmu will slide down/up by Tilde key.

Build 120609

  • Injects code was rewritten (new ASLR in Windows 8 RC x64).

Build 120602

  • Internal interprocess communication changes.
  • Windows 7 or higher. Jump list support: ConEmu may add its 'Predefined tasks' and commands from its history into the Windows 'Tasks' section. Jump list population takes some time, therefore the button 'Update Now!' was added to the 'Tasks' page of the 'Settings' dialog.
  • ConEmu.exe: Added command line argument /title "Template". The specified text will be shown in ConEmu's window title instead of the active console's title. You may use environment variables in the "Template" string.
  • 'Create new console' dialog: Added 'Reset command history...' item to the system menu.
  • Win+H: Make screenshot of active ConEmu window.
  • Tabs: Separate tab templates for Panels (Far) and other console applications.
  • Tabs: You may specify word list, excluded from the title of consoles (with exception of Far). Tired of the 'Administrator:' prefix of the consoles, runned as Administrator (Win7).
  • Take away lags while closing ConEmu.
  • Sometimes, Shell-dialogs (starting files, EMenu items) does not appears in front of ConEmu.
  • Minor change in (isMonitorConsoleLang == 2).
  • 'Fade when inactive' affects Status bar.
  • Command line, specified by '/cmd' argument (ConEmu.exe) will be added to the history.

  • Fixed Status bar setup menu hints.

Build 120527

  • Current accelerators are shown in system and tab menu.
  • Mouse events was not sent to console apps (except Far), when scrolling is on.
  • 'Settings' -> 'Features' -> 'Mouse options' -> 'Enable mouse'. Enabled by default. May be disabled to forbid sending mouse event to console. However, when disabled, you still can use mouse for selecting and pasting text.
  • New transparency option - ColorKey. However, 'UserScreen transparency' is still more useful for Far Manager.
  • Win+G - new hotkey for 'Attach...' system menu item.
  • Status Bar. Enabled by default. Font, color and column list (any of 20-th) are configurable in 'Settings' -> 'Status bar'. You may show/hide column from status bar popup menu, too. Column descriptions displayed, while hover mouse over it. Some columns process left clicks:
    • columns 'CAPS'/'NUM'/'SCRL' - switching;
    • column 'Active VCon' - active console selection popup menu (same as from toolbar);
    • column 'Transparency' - changing on the fly (100%..40%, UserScreen, ColorKey).

Build 120524a

Build 120523

  • 'Auto scroll' item removed from the system menu. If the console must be paused - use - Win+A (alternative buffer).
  • Ctrl+Win+Alt+Enter - forced activation of ConEmu in FullScreen. Like Win+C, the configurable hotkey will work regardless of the active application.
  • Win+Shift+Del - Terminate the active process in the current console.
  • The "ConEmuANSI" environment variable was added. Possible values are "ON" and "OFF".
  • Issue 554 : Cursor positioning and text output errors (ANSI X3.64).
  • Issue 553 : Console scrolling rollback.

Build 120522

  • New option: ‘ANSI X3.64 / 256color’ (‘Features’ tab). The entire console's area is used (incl. scroll buffer), however Xterm 256color only applies to the "working" area (lowest part of the console, when using the scroll buffer). The option "Inject ConEmuHk" must be enabled as well. If 256color does not seem to work, enable the ‘Colorer TrueMod support’ flag, and check that buffer/scrolling is disabled. Example: "256colors2.pl -cur_console:h0". Or, to scroll the console to the bottom: "echo ^[[9999;1H" (replace ‘^[’ with the real ESC symbol (char with code \x1B)). Two examples are included in ConEmu\Addons\AnsiColors16.ans and ConEmu\Addons\AnsiColors256.ans.
  • Win+A - alternative buffer (toolbar button - black square). When used in Far Manager, it displays the output of the last command. Otherwise, freezes the current state of the console (incl. scroll buffer). The alternative console can be closed by a repeated Win+A or Esc.
  • Win+S - enable/disable scroll buffer (BufferHeight). Ignored in Win7. Toolbar button - vertical arrows.
  • Win+N - Show create new console popup menu.
  • Issue 551 : Updater, Invalid unpack command line, while using environment variables.
  • New ConEmu.exe command-line options:
  •     /min - run minimized;
        /tsa - minimize to tray (to minimize to TSA on start, use with /min);
        /icon "<file>" - use icon from <file> (<file> can be exe, dll or ico);
        /noupdate - disable automatic update check on start.
  • 'About' dialog updated.
  • Fixed exception when lowering font size in Maximized window mode.
  • Added three system palettes: Standard VGA, Terminal.app, xterm.
  • Injects fixes.
  • Fixed incorrect size of fast configuration dialog when ConEmu starts maximized (shortcut property).

  • Optional confirmation for closing console from ConEmu (Features -> Confirm close console).
  • Portable: You may place files MsXml3.dll and MsXml3r.dll near to ConEmu.exe, for eliminating xml-problems on Live (PE) and Windows 2000. I recommend to take files from Windows XP (they have less dependencies).

Build 120401

  • Settings->Far Manager->KeyBar RClick: при подсветке пункта меню на кейбаре отображается выполняемое действие.
  • Issue 514 : Доработана опция 'Extend foreground colors with background'. Работает для любого приложения, а не только для Far Manager. Например, для Far Manager, в качестве 'заменяемого цвета фона' можно выбрать цвет панелей (синий по умолчанию), тогда для Far получится как бы своя собственная палитра цветов. Или наоборот, можно настроить цвета для внешнего редактора (Vim), выбрав в качестве цвета расширения его цвет фона. Для Far Manager имеет смысл только для веток 1.7x и 2.x. Для ветки 3.x любые TrueColor цвета можно настроить через интерфейс Far Manager.
  • Issue 319 : !Hyperlinks. Разрешено для любого приложения (не только в Far). Но для открытия редактора (LClick по ошибке из консоли с cmd.exe) Far должен быть запущен. При наведении меняется курсор мышки.

  • Примечание. При выборе пункта меню в консоль посылается именно нажатие, т.е. если на Ctrl-F7 висит макрос - будет выполнен макрос.

Build 120326
