Bug Description

I sometimes attach to my byobu session from a larger terminal than the one it is primarily running on. There is currently no way to force the window to be resized without doing

byobu attach -d

Which kicks all the other clients off.

Thanks, Clint. I have a few ideas about this. Basically, we're going to need a keybinding.

Okay, so this fix has two parts...

 1. If you want to maximize your terminal size, then you can now use Alt-F6 to disconnect all other attached sessions (except for your own). This will allow tmux to resize your terminal to its max.
 2. If you don't want to disconnect your other clients, then within Byobu you can easily create a new session of your own, with Ctrl-Shift-F2. Move between sessions with Alt-Up and Alt-Down.
 3. If neither of these are what you want, you will probably need to use byobu-screen.

Cheers!
