What is xfce4-terminal?

Xfce4-terminal is a modern terminal emulator for the Unix/Linux desktop
- primarily for the Xfce desktop environment. It is a lightweight
emulator based on the VTE widget, easy to use and provides an optional
drop-down window (game-console style).


Release notes for 0.8.5
- Do not change drop-down window size when zooming in/out
- Create terminal of desired size instead of default size of 80x24: this
  to avoid resizing the terminal right after creation (#13521)

its value
  only contains X and Y offsets
- Improve label layout in preferences dialog: restrict max width to 80
- Add --minimize command line option

- Prevent clipboard from being filled with garbage (#13403)
- Resolve deprecation warnings: gtk_show_uri_on_window,
  gdk_screen_make_display_name, gdk_screen_get_width/height
- Silence most of deprecation warnings that are not resolved
- Make Preferences dialog app-global - the same dialog window will be
  by multiple terminal windows
- Remove large space to the left of tab text when the text is too short
  (this allows tabs to be smaller)
- Gtk3 required version bumped to 3.16.0
- Fix memory leaks
- Close Find dialog when closing parent terminal window
- Close Set Title dialog when closing its corresponding tab
- Translation updates: Catalan, Chinese (Taiwan), German, Greek, Hebrew,
