Debarshi Ray: Custom terminal titles are back in Fedora

Almost four years ago, in GNOME 3.12, the ability to have custom terminal titles was removed from gnome-terminal. As is wont to happen, users who dealt with scores of similar looking terminal tabs and windows were quick to express their grief at this loss.

Thankfully, a year ago, Christian partly restored it by bringing back the --title command line option. It helped, but it still wasn’t enough.

Anyway, the good news is that custom terminal titles have been restored in their entirety since Fedora 25.

I must point out that this is a downstream patch carried by Fedora. If you want, you can ask your distributor to include it. Versions of the patch applicable to different GNOME branches can be found in this Git tree.
