Debarshi Ray: GNOME Terminal: separate menu items for opening tabs and windows

Astute users might have noticed that the GNOME Terminal binary distributed by Fedora has separate menu items for opening new tabs and windows, while the vanilla version available from GNOME doesn’t.

With separate menu items

This has been the case since Fedora 25 and was achieved by a downstream patch that reverted two upstream commits.

Without separate menu items

I am happy to say that since version 3.28 GNOME Terminal has regained the ability to have separate menu items as a compile time option. The gnome-terminal-server binary needs to be built with the DISUNIFY_NEW_TERMINAL_SECTION pre-processor macro defined. Here’s one way to do so.
