  9. Corrected lost position in some cases. Now the position restore has more inteligent logic, which checks two screen point to ensure that that the Terminals window title is still on visible screen.

Reviews for this release

     
If it wasn't beta software, I'd give 4 stars for a little roughness around the edges; I don't give 5 star ratings lightly. This app is fantastic! It has almost everything I could ask for; the only significant additions I want are (a) an option to lock the aspect ratio while scaling a terminal window, and (b) an MDI mode in which I could see multiple terminals at once within the main window.

Very nice application! It gives me a great opportunity to finally get an overview of our (way too) many servers in our production setup! I hope you will keep up the good development work.

This application has made managing mulitple servers and devices so much easier. I would give it 5 stars if I could use the 'tab' key to cycle through the various fields when adding a new saved connection.
