Finally, a servicing update for our beloved Preview users! Sorry we left you on read for so long... but we think you'll like the changes in this update. Hope they're worth the wait!

Windows Terminal v1.16.346{3,4}.0 contain the following backports from https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/tree/main:

  • Multiple changes to the new text rendering engine:
    • We will now attempt to better scale block and box drawing glyphs (#14099)
    • It will no longer crash with a heap overflow when presented with a malformed DBCS sequence (#14275)
    • We've adjusted how glyphs are scaled when they are way outside their bounding boxes in poorly-behaved fonts (#14085)

Bug Fixes

  • We've fixed the following issues that could lead to a local denial of service or worse (with many thanks to @dgl for reporting):

    • OSC 8 URIs will be limited to 2MB in length, following iTerm2 (and only 1024 bytes will be displayed in the tooltip) (#14198)

  • Ctrl+C will now skip any currently-playing DECPS sounds (thanks @dgl for reporting) (#14214)
