• What is multi-aterm ?

    Multi-aterm is a firstly a terminal emulator like rxvt, xterm, eterm, aterm, etc etc. There are many terminals emulators, so why writing another one ?
    - I wanted a terminal emulator small and fast with efficent pseudo transparency, like aterm.
    - I also wanted a tabbed terminal emulator like GMT (gnome-multi-terminal).
    - I want the terminal emulator not requiring GNOME or KDE libs, just written in X-lib (for people not using GNOME nor KDE)
    - finally, I was curious to understand how works a terminal emulator !
    Aterm was closed from what I was wanted, so I start multi-aterm from aterm sources, version 0.4.2 (lastest known).

    - improve when terminal background is refreshed and/or redrawn
    - develop a tool to configure each terminal background and attributes (tab name, ...)
    - make a man page
    - write documentation on multi-aterm, how works a terminal-emultator
