Update tilda to 1.5.0


  • Search is now backwards by default.
  • Tilda now handles monitor changes and adjusts its size automatically. This is useful in cases when a notebook is connected to an external monitor.
  • Tilda now stores the relative sizes of the window in percent rather than the absolute values in pixels.
  • The confirmation dialogs for confirm tab close and prompt on exit are now enabled by default.
  • When using the block cursor, the background color of the cursor is now correctly applied.
  • Tilda now uses asynchronous command spawning. A new option supports changing the default timeout when spawning a command (default is 3 seconds).
  • Various fixes related to the window title. Tooltips now display full tab title.
    • Fixed missing title on initial window and fixed a problem with setting the title when switching between tabs. Also the computation of the title is now more consistent between the window title, tooltips and the tab title.
  • When loading configuration files Tilda follows symlinks.
  • Tilda now uses xdg-open to open web links rather than x-www-browser.
  • Exclamation mark '!' is now supported by the HTTP regex for detecting web links.
  • In non-X11 environments such as Wayland tilda will now always use the X11 backend.
  • Added a check if lock dir exists which avoids a warning when Tilda starts the first time and the lock dir has not been created yet.
  • We now correctly free the resources when closing a terminal tab.
  • Fixed issue in transparency.
  • Fixed a resize issue in fullscreen mode.
  • Removed 'Allow Bold' option.
  • Removed deprecated antialiasing option.
  • Dropped support for older VTE versions.

Depends on D8220.

Test Plan: Used Tilda 1.5.0 to make this git commit and submit the diff.
