New Windows 10 Terminal app will have tab support and more

Microsoft today announced a new application for command-line users called "Windows Terminal," a new updated command-line tool for Windows 10 that offers a rich user interface theme, allowing users to customize their experiences. If you're a PowerShell, Windows Subsystem for Linux, or CMD user, you'll appreciate the new Windows Terminal.

The new Windows Terminal will be available this June and will feature tab support which is something that was confirmed to be in the works a few weeks ago after Windows Sets was rumored to have been killed.

From Microsoft's official blog post:

Windows Terminal [is] a new application for Windows command-line users [that] will offer a user interface with emoji-rich fonts and graphics-processing-unit-accelerated text rendering. It also will provide multiple tab support as well as theming and customization, allowing users to personalize their Terminal.

Microsoft demoed the new Windows Terminal app at Build 2019, along with other announcements such as conversational AI for Cortana, and new Chromium Edge features.
