|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Projects missing from Mars|
As a committer on TM and a project lead on TCF I am violently opposed against keeping the TM terminal alive.
If you still believe that TCF terminal does not support multiple views, you are 1.5 years or more late with your assessment.
As of today, the TCF Terminals view is at 100% feature parity compared to TM Terminal, and offers MUCH more (like drag-and-drop rearrangement of its multiple views for example, local terminal support, proper detection of target encoding and more). I’ve documented the feature parity on a bugzilla bug long ago if you want details (just don’t have time digging that out now).
Please, don’t make announcements like this without talking to the committers on the projects that you are talking about.

BTW, I am going to take another look at the TM Terminal. Dropping should be considered on hold at the moment. It might have a place with our o.e.remote strategy and has some UX features that are actually better than the TCF Terminal, like multiple views. Again no commitments but I should have a good understanding of where we need this to go by end of Jan.
BTW2, my biggest problem is that I’m releasing the LaunchBar in Luna SR-2 with CDT 8.6 and it has dependencies on all this stuff. So I’m walking a bit of a tight rope on this at the moment.
