Where to set xterm-256color in 15.1?

Since this was only needed with zsh, I just set an export in /etc/zshenv, e.g.

export TERM=xterm-256color

Strange this was not needed on 42.3 or 15.0.

What about setting xterm-256color system-wide in


which is then sourced on X startup?

That would seem to avoid problems of having to do this on a shell-by-shell

I still haven't found out why it is enabled by default in 42.3 and 15.0 with
the default setting TERM=xterm, but not in 15.1. What changed?
