# Permissions explanation
- This extension changes the html of the AWS console (e.g., the shortcuts bar)
- This extension receives messages from the Cloud Pegboard web client running in your browser (only when you are logged in to Cloud Pegboard) so that your Cloud Pegboard web page can send your lists of services to the extension. There is no server communication to/from the extension.
# Change log
- Updated to work with new AWS console design that was released on 9/21/2020.
- Command/control-click will now open a new tab when the option 'Click opens console in current tab' is set. The default click behavior is still to open in the current tab for this open. See the "Function" section in the options page for more details.
- Fixed exception for missing shortcut URL.
- Adds respect for sort order of shortcuts. Shortcuts may be sorted in the Cloud Pegboard datasheet dashboard view.

- Added option to enable usage analytics
- When activating a tab due to a shortcut click, now also brings containing window into focus in case it was not before.
- Added logic to only activate an existing tab for a service if the extension created it, otherwise it will create a new tab for the service.

- Added delay to popup of shortcuts menu on hover to avoid spurious popups when mouse passes by shortcuts
- Adds ability to define the environment (Prod, Dev, N/A) for each profile (user/role @ account) and display the name and color on screen (top left of console) to make it easy to see what type of account your are using and reduce the risk of inadvertently modifying a production environment
- Adds option to enable/disable the environment type display

- Abbreviates the default "Resource Groups" menu title on the nav bar to "Rsrc Grps" to make more room for shortcuts

- The popup will automatically dismiss itself when the mouse moves off of the popup. There is a 600ms grace period to allow for brief excursions.
- Hovering over shortcuts now shows full name of service in all modes. Note that when shortcuts personalization is disabled, the AWS default behavior shows 'false' on hover.
- Fixed so that when opening a console from a shortcut, the default region is used
- Extension popup menu will automatically close 2.5 seconds after a list is selected. Selecting another list will reset the timer.
