terminator 0.90

Like cmsj was announcing yesterday, he finally released Terminator 0.90.

The goal of Terminator is to produce a useful tool for arranging terminals. It is inspired by programs such as gnome-multi-term, quadkonsole, etc. in that the main focus is arranging terminals in grids (tabs is the most common default method, which Terminator also supports).

Terminator 0.90 is a complete re-write of the original code. The most important new feature is that now you are able to save layouts, however this doesn't seem to work for me.

To see the new Terminator 0.90 for yourself, all you have to do is paste this in a terminal (Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04 only):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome-terminator/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install terminator

I just hope there will be an exception and Terminator 0.90 will be in the Lucid official repositories.

If you're not using Ubuntu, you can download Terminator 0.90 source files from HERE.

Update: Terminator 0.91 was released just one day after 0.90 to fix some nasty bugs in the initial release.
