  • Added support for external stones. Now is possible to develop and distribute new stones apart from Krento.
  • Added plugins support. Now is possible to extend the functionality of Krento using plugins
  • Added new type of widgets - Krento Toys. Krento Toys are similar to Windows Sidebar widgets and stay on the desktop not linked to Krento Stones Manager.
  • Added possibility to assign custom hot-key combinations to most of Krento actions (for advanced users only)
  • Added drag and drop support for "My Documents", "My Pictures", "My Music" and "Recycle Bin" stones
  • Extended drag and drop support for "File or web site launcher" stone: when shift button is pressed the dragged file will not replace the stone's target but will be passed to the stone application as a command line parameter. For example, you can create the stone with Notepad as a target and drag the text file to it. In this case Notepad starts and opens the dragged file.
  • When you do Ctrl + Click on Stones Manager window, the ring selection dialog will be shown
  • You can change current circle by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Fxx (F1..F12) for first 12 circles
This is just a very short list of the new features. Additional information about this release will come here and on Krento forum:
