Release 6 and 7 (version 188.8.131.52) are now in the Store, release notes below. This release is for Windows 8.0, and has mostly been improvements and bug fixes to the core functionality.
I have already been working on a release for Windows 8.1, which greatly improves the usability of the terminal in snapped modes. Unfortunately, by releasing a version for 8.1, users still on 8.0 would no longer be able to get updates and there were just too many outstanding issues to move to 8.1 yet. The goal of this release has been to build a solid product for 8.0, and allow us to move to an 8.1 release in the next few weeks.
