I just updated to the latest iTerm 2 on my new laptop and now I'm seeing border and window shadow with iTerm 2.

Please see the screenshot below.

Is there a way to remove the shadow with the latest iTerm 2?

Did you update MacOS?  Since you were able to get both screenshots easily, I'm assuming that isn't going to play into it.

I'm surprised this is an app option and not an OS setting (which doesn't seem to exist either).

Are you sure the shadow isn't just getting added to the selected window?

Sorry, it is not currently possible to remove the shadow if you’re on macOS 11 or later.
