Token2Shell/MD gets a touch of fluent design in the new update

Fluent Design System is the future look-and-feel of Windows 10. It’s not yet available in the official release of Windows 10 SDK but we were able to implement one of its noticeable elements, acrylic background, for Token2Shell/MD.

In order to support this new acrylic background, Token2Shell/MD now requires Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) or higher. If you’re using a previous version of Windows 10, you cannot update Token2Shell/MD to version 11.0.0 or higher.

The new version 11.0.0 also includes the following improvements and changes:

  • Address Book and Macro entries can now be moved or copied within their side pane view
  • You can now use sliding gestures on side panes for activating their associated menus. For example, on Address Book side pane, tapping an entry opens a new terminal window. However, you can select the entry for copying or moving by sliding it to right. If you slide it to left, you can access its popup menu.

  • Swiping to left on the right edge of the desktop opens the most recently used side pane view (ex. Address Book, Macro or etc.)
  • The password is now automatically removed from a URL before adding it to the recent connection history. For example, if you enter “ssh://username:mypassword@host.address” on the Quick Connect popup window, Token2Shell/MD uses the “mypassword” as a password for connecting to “host.address”. However, instead of storing the full “ssh://username:mypassword@host.address”, only “ssh://username@host.address” will be added. Token2Shell/MD now also has an option to completely turn off maintaining the recent connection history.

    The new behavior and option should be handy if you’re using a dedicated password manager such as KeePass (http://keepass.info/) and want to open sessions in Token2Shell/MD via URL’s.
