iTerm is a full featured terminal emulation program written for OS X using
Cocoa. We are aiming at providing users with best command line experience
under OS X. The letter i represents a native Apple look
and feel of the program interface, and an emphasis on complete international
support. iTerm was merged from two projects, CTerminal and TerminalX, both
of which were based on JTerminal project. The current version is still in
beta stage. It is however very much functional and usable.
