New Tonido Release 18.104.22.16838 Highlights
This is the best and most significant Tonido release ever and our first release to reach and cross the magical 1.0 version number.
As mentioned in the preview, we basically took a hard look at how our users were using Tonido and switched around the entire interface to reflect that usage. In case you missed it, the design makes all the major Tonido pieces easily available
- a brand new cool File Explorer
- a shortcut to a listing of Shared Files
- a shortcut to Guest Users
- shortcuts to all your Tonido apps
- a shortcut to managing your apps
- a shortcut to settings
- a shortcut to documentation and help
Here are some of the salient features:
Fully Integrated Navigation across apps
This is big, now you know exactly where you are in Tonido and it is 1 click to switch to another app or another section or setting.
The navigation can be minimized by clicking the the collapse button, which makes the navigation tree collapse to the left hand side to get more space.
Once collapsed, you get more working room.
Multi-File Upload Support
The first big change is the ability to upload multiple files in Tonido Explorer. Select as many different files as you want and then hit upload.
Optional Uncompression of Zip Files on Upload
If selecting multiple files is laborious and you want to upload a full folder full of stuff. Just zip it up, and upload it, the zip will get unzipped after it gets uploaded. Nifty, eh?
Drag-and-Drop Copy Support
There are almost 3 ways to copy files and by far the coolest ways is to drag multiple files from one folder to another.
Post Links to Facebook/Twitter
Tonido has to keep up with the times and that means we need to make things easy for people to share links on Facebook or Twitter.
Keyboard shortcuts galore
We added a dash of keyboard shortcuts in many places to make it easier for you work. Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V for copying, DELETE for deleting files, F2 for file rename are some of them.
Open Apps in the same window or in a new window
You can right click on an app to open it in the same window or in a new window (like how it used to open previously)
Other Bug Fixes
We also fixed several bugs, including a crash and memory leak in Mac OSX, an issue with Tonido data paths in Windows.
While Tonido’s UI has been undergoing evolutionary changes over the last year, this release extends beyond evolution and actually marks a significant jump. And in doing so, we believe that these changes lay the foundation upon which Tonido and app user interfaces will evolve over next few years.
As you use this new UI, please let us know either via our blogs, forums, facebook or twitter on what you liked, what you didn’t like and everything in between. It greatly shapes the direction forward.
And there are even more exciting stuff in the pipeline that we should announce this month. So stay tuned.
