Description

When opening the GRASS shell within QGIS, the user is no longer noticed that (s)he is actually in a grass shell, as it used to be. It might be better to have it back (or to define a prompt of the form "grass>").

Seems OK now.

The shell in QGIS GRASS Tools does not set prompt PS1, so the default or set by user is used.
GRASS standard shell forces

PS1='GRASS %s (%s):\\w > '\n" % (grass_version, location_name)

I am not convinced that we want to waste space for that, we have title in tools like this:
GRASS tools <location>/<mapset>

We could add a welcome message like:

Welcome to GRASS GIS <version> shell

This seems a reasonable solution. Thanks Radim.

However it seems simple, I cannot find easy way to print a message to shell directly
without calling external script.

The class/method which receives data is private:

QTermWidget.m_impl->m_session->emulation()->receiveData(const char* text, int length)
