Submission + - Windows 10 TH2 (v1511) Console Host Enhancements (

x0n writes: As of Windows 10 TH2 (10.0.1058), the core console subsystem has support for a large amount of ANSI and VT100 escape sequences. This is likely to prepare for full Open SSH server/client integration, which is already underway over on github. It looks like xterm is finally coming to Windows.

Submission + - Emulating Bash / GNU Readline in PowerShell 3.0 (

x0n writes: "One of the little known features of PowerShell 3.0 allows you to completely take over the line editing experience. I have integrated a bash-style tab completion / gnu readline line editor, using code gleaned from an old Mono REPL and some hackery. The tab completion uses the native PowerShell 3.0 APIs for matching, so you still get rich completion of parameters, types, cmdlets as well as the nice EMACS bindings. PowerShell 3.0 ships with Windows 8, 2012 and is available downlevel for 2008/R2 and Windows 7."
