Single Login for Desktop Application

In version 2.1, I was able to run my application without logging in with the exceptions of first time login or settings being reset.  I was able to do this by saving SessionKey and AuthToken.  It would appear to me that the AuthToken has been moved (or deprecated).  Where has it gone and/or is this functionality still available?

EDIT: I downloaded 38617 today :)

I am currently using the facebookservice component and have tried using fbservice.Api.Auth.CreateToken() to get an auth token to store.  However, when I do, I get an 'Incorrect Signature'.  Is anyone trying to do something similar with a desktop application?

I got everything working nicely now.  I have replaced the authToken user setting with session secret and then created a desktop session.

Simply, all you need for the desktop session is the apiKey, sessionSecret, and sessionKey.  Once I have the DesktopSession, I create a new instance of fb.Rest.Api and away I go.
