Projects / ggiterm


ggiterm is a software terminal emulator like xterm. However instead of X, it uses the GGI system for its rendering, which allows it to be displayed on anything from a framebuffer to multi-screens across networked hosts (including ordinary X sessions). It features multiple font formats, anti-aliasing, vt100 compatibility, and full internationalization.

      •  02 Dec 2003 22:46

        Release Notes: Heavily reworked code, but few user-visible changes. The default TERM value is now "ggiterm" instead of "ansi", whose definition is not consistent across systems. There is i18n support in input as well as output, vt100 compatibility, and no more iconv dependency. This release builds on Solaris, and fixes the "disappearing lines" bug with LibGGI > 2.0.1.

        •  30 Oct 2003 21:53

          Release Notes: This release implements invisible mode, bold mode, underline mode, colors, and tabs. A segfault when a font is rejected and debuglevel is greater than 0 has been fixed, as well as an error at compilation when FT support is not compiled in. A minimalistic forkpty() replacement has been added for when the system doesn't have it. Now ./configure --with-ggi-prefix=DIR behaves as expected.
