What's new in this version:

New Features:

- A Python scripting API has been added to enable extensive configuration and customization

- Two new themes: Minimal: Reduces visual clutter. Modernist; Compact: Moves tabs into the title bar to save space, while preserving the general appearance of a macOS app
- Session, tab, and window titles have been revamped to be more flexible and comprehensible. You can now configure them separately and select what information is shown per profile. They are integrated with the new Python scripting API.
- Tabs may now have icons: either an icon indicating the running app, or a fixed icon per profile
- The display of Sixel images is now supported
- Add menu item to arrange split panes evenly. In tmux, this uses the tiled layout
- Greatly improved support for background images: they may now span split panes and you can adjust how they are scaled to avoid stretching
- Add support for reporting keystrokes with CSI u
- New type of trigger added that turns text into a hyperlink
- New type of trigger added that adds annotations to the matching text
- You can now export a recording of your screen from the Instant Replay panel
- A new toolbelt tool, Actions, provides shortcuts to frequent actions like sending a snippet of text
- You can now search preferences. There's a search bar in the top right of the window
- Add a new utility, "it2git", which allows the git status bar component to show git state on a remote host. Install the utilities and then view ~/.iterm2/it2git for further instructions
- Add touch bar mitigations: haptic feedback, key click, and blink cursor when touching esc.
- Replace the system font picker with an easier- to-use custom one
- Search now remembers your 10 most recent queries and offers them as suggestions

- Numerous visual improvements
- Update app icon
- You can now change the color preset from the Open Quickly window

- Remove the bell icon from tabs more aggressively
- Various pages of preferences have been rearranged to make more sense or be more visually pleasing
- A new menu item lets you configure cmd-+ and cmd-- to adjust the underlying profile rather than only the current session
- By default the tab bar now stretches to fill the available width so it looks more like a native tab bar. You can change this in Prefs > Appearance
- Add a new proprietary control sequence to bounce the app icon only one time
- Add support for setting the proxy icon by control sequence
- Add support for broadcasting passwords to multiple sessions from the password manager. Off by default
- Update " Compatibility" key mapping for option left and right arrows

- Add "use transparency" as a profile setting for newly created windows
- Adjust how underlines are drawn to have a more correct baseline offset
- Add an advanced pref to swap find next/find previous behavior (since the default does not conform to macOS norms)
- The default scheme for URLs when you cmd-click is now https rather than http. You can change it with an advanced pref

- Performance improvements for box drawing characters when not using GPU renderer
- Performance improvements for opening long lists of color presets
- Change natural text editing keyboard preset to include cmd-left and cmd-right
- Work around a bug in tmux 2.9 that would crash the tmux server when changing panes
- When the current tab is closed select the one to its right, like standard macOS tabs
- Work around a macOS quirk where the equals sign on the numeric keypad is not treated as a numeric keypad key
- When tabs are very narrow, prefer to show the tab label over the new-output/bell icon
- Add an advanced setting to handle spacing combining marks properly ("Detect base unicode characters with lookup table")
- Respect System "Prefs>Dock>Prefer tabs when opening documents"
