Tmux is a terminal multiplexer and session manager, and alternative to GNU screen. It allows easy switching between multiple running programs in the same terminal, put them into background mode, or reattach a running process, or arrange them into multiple rectangle views. Different terminal and connection instances can interact with a tmux session, and they are persistent per default, run over ssh and plain telnet.

Tmux can now write an entry to utmp if the library 'utempter' is present
at compile time.
Set-buffer learned append mode (-a), and a corresponding
'append-selection' command has been added to copy-mode.
Choose-mode now has the following commands which can be bound:
Choose-buffer now understands UTF-8.
Pane navigation has changed.
'set-buffer' can now be told to give names to buffers.
The 'new-session', 'new-window', 'split-window', and 'respawn-pane' commands
now understand multiple arguments and handle quoting problems correctly.
'capture-pane' understands '-S-' to mean the start of the pane, and '-E-' to
mean the end of the pane.
Support for function keys beyond F12 has changed.
Support using pane id as part of session or window specifier (so means
session-of- 1 or window-of- 1) and window id as part of session
(so @1 means session-of-@1).
'copy-pipe' and 'if-shell' command now understands formats via -F.
'split-window' and 'join-window' understand -b to create the pane to the left
or above the target pane.
