New with Yosemite (if I'm not mistaken)...


When using the nano text editor inside the Terminal, it's now possible to scroll through the text with the mouse. Finally!

In every OS X release before, it would scroll the Terminal content.

Yay! I've been trying to do that for years, and it always irritates when I remember I have to use the scrollbar instead.

Nice. Confirmed this works in emacs as well. Can't say if this is new behavior for emacs because I honestly never tried, but good to know.

I stopped using iTerm a long time ago because Terminal was the only terminal app I found that restored window states after quitting the app. I generally have no problems with it, but my longstanding pet feature wish is that it would also save the input history for each shell session when quitting, as I generally keep several session tabs open for various projects and often use specific terminal commands in each.
