Happy new year! 🎉 Sitecore Author Toolbox 5.0 is out.

Sunday 3rd January 2021.

It’s time for a new release of Sitecore Author Toolbox extension. To celebrate the new year and welcome 2021, this new release is adding some nice UI enhancement and bringing Experimental UI Theme to the next level with the support of Sitecore Desktop Mode.

A new User Menu

A new user menu is attached to your profile picture. You can now easily access common Sitecore features and customize the look and feel by choosing between dark and light mode and between classic Sitecore and experimental UI Theme.

Experimental UI for Sitecore Desktop mode

Besides the numerous under-the-hood code optimizations made in this release, the main visible change is that Experimental UI Theme is now fully compatible with Sitecore Desktop mode. Another reason to give it a try and adopt it!
