At the DevSummit in Cambridge we briefly discussed including tmux(1) in
the base system. We recently had window(1) there, but unfortunately
window(1) was a very limited tool, compared to tools like screen(1) and
tmux(1). Why tmux(1) and not screen(1)? Well, simple. The first has a
better license and very active maintenance.
I was talking with the author on IRC the other day and it seemed like I
spoke with him at a fortunate moment, because he was just about to
release version 1.0. I think it would be nice to import this into HEAD,
which means FreeBSD 9.0 (maybe 8.1?) will include it by default.
How to test tmux in base:
- Download this tarball and extract it to contrib/tmux:
- Apply the following patch:
