There is a special reason to write this post. Jack Palevich (jackpal) is the developer of this great app and all credits goes to him. He has given a hint at GitHub website on 15th April 2015 as he going to stop updating the Terminal Emulator for Android after next version. That mean the version v1.0.70.

“I’ve decided to wrap up working on Terminal Emulator for Android. The next release will be the final version of Terminal Emulator for Android that includes new features. There may be additional releases after that to fix regressions, but no new features.”

Actually we can prove this when looking at statistic page of Terminal Emulator for Android project at GitHub because we cannot see any update after April 2015.

Why Jackpal stop updating Android Terminal Emulator?

The reason was, as an app developer he wanted to spend more time on his new projects. Because its taking too much time to maintaining the Terminal Emulator for Android. He like to keep this app as it is and he wanted to see an alternative for Android Terminal Emulator from other developers.

Finally, he has given the respect for all developers who contributed and special thanks for Developer Steven Luo and Graphic designer Nathanel Titane.

Thank you very much jackpal for developing a great app like Terminal Emulator for Android and sharing it free among android users.
