Hyper 2.0 Has Been Released

Hyper terminal 2.0 stable just got released on all platforms this week. The most significant update is migrating from hterm to xterm.js, a full xterm terminal using web technologies. Microsoft Visual Studio Code also uses xterm.js for its built-in editor terminal.

Here are the highlights of stable 2.0 release, which is now at a 2.0.4:

  • Smaller Core
    • 22% faster bootup time
    • Native-like baseline memory footprint
  • New xterm.js engine
    • Improved performance
    • Better cross-platform compatibility
    • Chinese, Japanese, and Korean character support
    • 100% backwards-compatible with existing themes
    • Responsive under high-throughput I/O

What is Hyper?

If you haven’t heard of Hyper, it is a cross-platform compatible terminal using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. The application is built on top of electron to create cross-platform desktop apps, which powers apps like Visual Studio Code, Atom, and GitHub Desktop. Under the hood, Hyper uses React and Redux in the UI layer.
