    Wow, this update is awesome.
    But theres one minor issue – the terminal no longer resizes when the on screen kb pops on. The keyboard just covers the bottom of the screen and you cant see what your typing, unless you scroll the terminal down.

      Since there’s currently no good solution for the soft-keyboard and resizing the terminal, I changed the functionality like this on purpose. I will look into possible automatically scrolling up the view so that the bottom of the terminal is visible while the soft-keyboard is on. If that is not possible, I may add a setting to resize the terminal when the soft-keyboard is visible, and perhaps keep the size locked until screen orientation changes or something. The constant resize of the terminal seemed to break connections sometimes, especially while logging in, and generally added too much complexity to the size management code.
