Roadmap

This roadmap is dynamic and based primarily on feedback from our users. If there is something missing from our planned feature set or you would like to add to this list, please contact us by email and let us know!

Some items may not appear here, but be planned or tentative. For instance, we would like to support port forwarding but are unsure at this time if Apple will allow this. We will update this page as we find out more.

Briefly, features we are planning include:

  • backquote, tab, function, numpad, arrow and pgup/pgdwn keys
  • key-based authentication
  • support for multiple simultaneous connections
  • custom terminal sizes
  • custom foreground and background colors
  • customizing TCP behaviour (TCP Keepalives, etc)
  • port forwarding
  • auto-scroll with cursor
  • scrollback
  • ... and many more!
