I use a terminal multiplexor most of the time and would like to make use of the new ssh agent. However, it doesn't work when run inside a terminal multiplexer (Well I tried zellij and then tmux). It doesn't work if I authenticate with the pop-up first then launch the multiplexer either. aciinema attached as an example: https://asciinema.org/a/7Mg9sLfsdK0lDvTFITZg21x2X

    We currently don't have a public facing issue tracker, but keep an eye out for an announcement post here in the SSH board.

    @N33T This has been fixed already, are you still facing problems with terminal multiplexers?

    Hi @floris_1P,

    on my linux machine whenever I use tmux and a ssh key is needed it prompts me constantly with the message:
    "1Password is trying to allow "/usr/bin/git" to use the key with fingerprint xxxxxxxx for SSH"

    And whenever I ssh to a remote machine it also keeps displaying the prompt.
    but now for "usr/bin/zsh"

    @N33T Gotcha. We have a fix for that ready which is currently in review. I'll keep you posted here when that's released.
