Few ideas for new versions

Hi.
I'm using mrxvt for more than one year. It's great terminal emulator, but has problem with xft font encoding. Today I've found evilvte. Small, quite fast [but starts a bit longer than mrxvt] and with great feature - encoding change. Tried to switch to evilvte, but couldn't - few options are missing, and I've decided to stay with mrxvt.
So I've thought, I'll write down those few ideas, which might help improving evil and maybe some day it will be the best small emulator available.
1. Fullscreen toggle [menu] and fullscreen shortucut - terminal on whole screen, above panels.
2. As option: transparent tabs, matching terminal background - like mrxvt.
3. As option: Defining RGB values for each font color, for example when I have blue background [colors 4 and 12], I want to change a bit shade of blue to make it more visible.
4. As option: Off-focus fading - a bit darker fonts & background when terminal is out of focus.
5. As option: Close buttons on each tab.

I hope this will help make evilvte better. Keep up the good work :)

Thank you! I will put them to TODO list.

Is it transparent tabbar? I will suppport it in next release.

Great you'll add those things :)

Yes, it is. Looks like above. Also please notice two things:
1. Dashed lines around title,  to notice user about new output in third tab.
2. Dynamic tab title, chaning accoring to running application, differect working directory, etc.

It is hard to use "dashed lines" in GTK+. I think a color change in tab label is good. (already in my TODO list)

It is already in my TODO list.
You may want to try lilyterm, which has supportted this feature. Smile

Thanks for the link, but lily doesn't support fake transparency [background image]. And for me that's major functionality.

After so many pre-releases, I found that not all GTK+ theme / engine supports alpha channel.
I think it is much easier to set transparent via a window manager / composite manager.
I will not support transparent tabbar in 0.4.4. :-(
