Regarding the subject, just wanted to know this because I am trying to
decide whether to go with Screen or Tmux. So far in my experience,
Screen seems more mature (but I might not be qualified enough to say
this :-) ) .
I admit a release has been slow in coming, and because of that I have
also been considering a switch to tmux for a handful of features I've
been waiting for. However, screen is mature and I know it well and
haven't had enough time to switch yet. I also don't know if I could get
tmux for some of the Solaris machines I have to deal with. Also, most
of the features I wanted have been in the git version of screen for a
while so development on screen does continue to progress albeit slowly.
In an effort to move things along some of us have started work to try
and package a git version for distros like Debian:
I'm using it (backported for squeeze) on a large lab setup already.
