In introduced terminator in a previous article as multi-view terminal.
Since then, terminator as quite evolved, with plenty of new features that were highlighted in Terminator 0.9 beta 1 post.
It is now officially out with all those nifty features.
check out the changelogs:
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. * 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
