check out the changelog:

terminator 0.9:

  • Tab support
  • Drag & Drop support
  • Added support for ~/.config/terminator/config
  • Switch the meanings of “horizontal” and “vertical” wrt splitting, after extensive user feedback. Added context menu icons to try and make the meaning clearer.
  • Added keybindings for terms size and scrollbar manipulation. Thanks Emmanuel Bretelle.
  • Alpha transparency support when running in a composited window manager
  • Completely revamped config system which now transparently makes use of gconf settings if they are available, falls back to sensible defaults if not, and can be overridden entirely by ~/.config/terminator/config
  • Support terminal zooming - now you can quickly hide all terminals apart from one and either scale the fontsize or not.
  • New application icon from Cory Kontros
  • FreeBSD support (thanks to Thomas Hurst)
  • Watch the system monospace font setting. Closes LP #197960
  • Proxy support (via GNOME and $http_proxy)
  • GConf backend now caches
  • Fix redundant title when there is only one Term. Closes LP#215210
  • Try much harder to find a usable shell
  • Support encodings a-la GNOME Terminal
  • Move python support code to a terminatorlib module
  • Many other bug fixes and wider compatibility with GNOME Terminal
  • Add support to cycle term within the same tab. Closes LP#238205. This can be disabled by setting cycle_term_tab to False in ~/.config/terminator/config
