    Posted: 04 Mar 2021
    Our goals for v0.33 release cycle was to add in some critical new functionality into the new user experience as well as a plug-in manager for PowerToys Run.

    Where is the Video Conference utility?

    We'll be doing a 0.34 experimental release week of March 8th. We feel we are near ready to add in Video Conference mute into the stable release pending feedback from the pending 0.34 experimental release.

    Highlights from v0.33 Stable/0.34 Experimental

    General
    • Updated overview links to be language agnostic to the docs site.
    • 'First time load' experience. The hope is a quick, light way to learn about basic functionality. We have some more work to do and want to also use the same framework for teaching about updates as well.
    • Localization corrections

    FancyZones
    • Adjusted editor UX based on feedback. Thanks @niels9001!
    • New options to change zone activation algorithm.

    File Explorer
    • Improved how SVG images are previewed in the preview pane, thanks@Drakula44!
    • @Aaron-Junker has created a proof of concept for using Monaco editor for previewing dev files. This will enable over 125+ file types.

    • Plugin Manager now is in settings. You can directly turn on / off, include items in general search, and change the action key! Thanks @htcfreek for the great feedback!
    • Improved support for additional window managers by abstracting out shell process calls. Thanks @davidegiacometti!
    • Fix for PT Run registering the hotkey on non-supported OS versions.
