    Release Notes: This release has an entirely revamped UI. The goal is to be closer to a shell/terminal interface than before, giving more space to the output of commands while still allowing use of the mouse for operations. You can define Hotwire builtins as regular Python functions, but with a decorator.

      Release Notes: Internal line processing now includes newlines. ~/.bash_history is imported. Non-UTF8 locales can be handled. Sorting is done by the file renderer. The "open" action now works on Windows. The "apply" builtin was added. The "view" builtin was added, which launches an editor in read-only mode. "kill" now optionally takes Process objects as input. "rm" has a new --unlink option to really delete.

        Release Notes: This is the first alpha release. While it is still in development and a number of things may change, it is expected that significantly more people will find it to be a compelling replacement for a terminal and a shell.

          Release Notes: Some system commands were changed to open in a new terminal window which does not close when the command exits. Often you want to see the final output of the command after it exits. Examples include "sudo" and "su". Complete commands are only removed after they've been viewed. Command output is significantly faster. UID/GID lookups are cached, which speeds up file listings.

            Release Notes: Basic input to system commands is now supported (press Ctrl-I). Drag and drop works for files in FilePathRenderer? (ls/cd).

                Release Notes: Support for creating new windows (in addition to new tabs) was added. Ctrl-c now Does The Right Thing; if you have a selection it copies, otherwise it cancels the last command. Tab switching is now Ctrl-# and not Alt-# to match gnome-terminal and Firefox. There is now a basic menu bar for some discoverability. Alt-Left and Alt-Right key bindings were removed. Ctrl-PageUp/PageDn or Ctrl-# can be used instead. Ctrl-Up and Ctrl-Down are convenient ways to cycle through previous command displays.

                  Release Notes: This version keeps track of "hot" working directories and offers them as completions when using 'cd'. Completions now have icons, which is useful for distinguishing real files from history completions. A new 'fsearch' built-in is like fgrep -R, but cooler. A new 'prop' built-in was added for accessing object properties. The completion window should now flash a lot less during completion.
