Hi all,

I've just released tmux 2.1. This can be found here:

https://github.com/tmux/tmux/releases/tag/2.1

Including a link to the CHANGES file for slightly more information.
This is not as extensive as the git history which you should refer to
if you need more information about anything specific.

On behalf of those who've worked on bringing you this release, we wish
you happy tmuxing!

Kindly,
Thomas Adam

The latest issue of tmux no longer senses mouse over pane and moves focus
but retains cursor in last accessed pane. Is this intended or is there a
new option I need to configure?

Ahhh, found it :) <bind-key>:set mouse on

But I did, my tmux.conf contains
set -g mouse-select-pane on
setw -g mode-mouse on

and it worked previously. Do I need to change this or bug or ???

tks,

OK, further investigation reveals:
- Incompatible Changes:
* Mouse-mode has been rewritten. There's now no longer options for:
- mouse-resize-pane
- mouse-select-pane
- mouse-select-window
- mode-mouse
Instead there is just one option: 'mouse' which turns on mouse support
entirely.

But "set mouse on" doesn't appear to do anything for me???

show-options provides *only* "mouse on"

Confused....

I had hoped the CHANGES file I referenced would have been enough,
however apparently not.

You no longer need those two other options, this one does it all:

set -g mouse on

You can check out my tmux config that customizes the mouse bindings to
sort of mimic the mouse behavior pre-2.1:

https://github.com/kaushalmodi/dotfiles/blob/master/.tmux.conf

Mouse config is after the "# * Mouse" line (line 150 as of writing this).

I used to have "mode-mouse on" to be able to enter (and leave) copy
mode with the mouse. (Turning the wheel scrolled three-line-wise.)

I almost have this back with

bind -n WheelUpPane select-pane -t= \; copy-mode -e \; send-keys -M
bind -n WheelDownPane select-pane -t= \; send-keys -M

Now it scrolls line-wise, which is even more smoothly. :-)

I also configured Ctrl as a speedup-key like this:

bind -n C-WheelUpPane select-pane -t= \; copy-mode -e \; send-keys -M

and

bind -t vi-copy C-WheelUpPane halfpage-up
bind -t vi-copy C-WheelDownPane halfpage-down
bind -t emacs-copy C-WheelUpPane halfpage-up
bind -t emacs-copy C-WheelDownPane halfpage-down

Unfortunately bindings to Shift- or Meta-Wheel seem not to work. :-(

Most terminals do not seem to support S- and M- with the mouse.

@sattler: cool idea with Ctrl to speedup!
