Windows Terminal Preview v0.10: Mouse Input

The Terminal now supports mouse input in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) applications as well as Windows applications that use virtual terminal (VT) input. This means applications such as tmux and Midnight Commander will recognize when you click on items in the Terminal window! If an application is in mouse mode, you can hold down shift to make a selection instead of sending VT input.

Settings Update

Duplicate Pane

You can now open a new pane with a duplicate profile of the pane that is in focus. This can be done by adding "splitMode": "duplicate" to the "splitPane" command list in your key bindings. This key binding will duplicate the profile, but you can add other options such as "commandline""index""startingDirectory", and "tabTitle". If you’d like to read more about these key binding options, you can check out this blog post.
