For added convenience on Windows, trigger variable names can now be copied from the VShell Control Panel and pasted into trigger commands.

Logging (Windows)

On Windows, set the Log Topic Debug Level easily using the VShell Control Panel. Save time with a new button that opens the log file folder using Windows File Explorer.

On all platforms, logging now lists the SSH2 algorithms available in VShell as well as the algorithms available in the client.
