27 Dec 2022 - Extraterm Qt v0.69.0 released - The new Colorizer extension has been added. This is a completely new extension which can automatically highlight certain words in the terminal output. For example, “Warning” and “Error”. It is configurable and supports regular expressions so you can detect and highlight things like dates and IP addresses if you want to.
25 Nov 2022 - Extraterm Qt v0.68.0 released - Find functionality has been added. It is fast and highlights occurences by default.
28 Oct 2022 - Extraterm Qt v0.67.0 released - It is a busy time of the year and this release took much longer to reach than expected. A huge amount of work went into optimising the build process and the final application build files and packaging. Most of the code is now being compressed and unused code is aggressively being removed. This results in smaller package and installer sizes and also an application which starts up faster.
