fbterm terminal

I saw in a couple of other threads a reference to an upcoming kindle port of fbterm. Just wanted to ask about the current status of this port, and see if there was a Web page for it currently?

You did? I haven't heard of this except for some very old threads.

Basically the native terminal from lrizzo does such thing already. And then there's also the Terminal (SSH or the modified version by me) Kindlet.

Well, perhaps the project turned out to be infeasible, and got abandoned. I have the terminal that you mentioned, and it works well for most things, but has an issue with scrolling with one app that I am trying to run under it, so I thought I would check into alternatives. Thanks!

Nope! It is NetHack with an alternate text interface. Too obscure for anyone else to have heard of, so I didn't mention which app it was.

That's not true. Slowly, but we are still making some progress.
So, please stay tuned.

Okay; that is good news. It sounds quite promising from the description.
