Basic ANSI escape code support
Octopus is getting used more and more with Linux and CLI tools in the Linux ecosystem. Those tools often output ANSI codes, particularly for color.
Most of the time it's possible to turn the color output/ANSI codes off but the lack of color can make deployment logs much less readable.
Other tools in the CI/CD process do support basic ANSI codes (color), eg. Github Actions, Gitlab CI, Jenkins etc.
As an example of log output that is much more difficult to read without color: terraform plan
