Project Release Information
This release improves UI flexibility so that gentoo now runs better if you configure it to not have any command buttons. It fixes a bug that prevented the Information window from successfully closing. It rewrites the core of the Move command to not compute the size before trying a rename, saving huge amounts of time for deep/complex directory moves on the same device.
This release fixes a bug which prevented the Run dialog from executing the selected command when Return was pressed, fixes a bug in running of external commands which made the selection requirement be unpredictable or just broken, adds support for GTK+'s window roles, improves focus re-capture when un-ghosting a window after running a long blocking command, implements copying of "special files" (e.g., devices and FIFOs), and makes the Join command run with better feedback (it was only updating after each source file was processed, which could take minutes for very large files).
The Rename command now optionally pre-selects parts of the filename, which is handy for preventing changing of the extension. The Spanish and Catalan translations were updated. Better default action handling was implemented, so that Return dismisses the dialog. The Information window now remembers size and position. The location and names of configuration files was changed for less filesystem littering.
Updated to require GTK+ 2.24. Many bugfixes and improvements. Reintroduction of pane header highlighting by color to show activeness. Pane-switching moves input focus. Support for rubber-band selection. Dialog keyboard handling has been improved. The SelectType command from the keyboard no longer causes a crash. Shows the active pane's current location in the window's title bar. Catalan and Spanish translations have been updated.
A bug that made it impossible to double-click file and directory names was fixed. The configure-script was tweaked to require a more recent version of GTK+. Two new translations were added for Catalan and Spanish. A few other minor fixes were made.
gentoo is a file manager that uses the two-pane concept and is somewhat inspired by DOpus. It strives to be very configurable and lets you do all of the configuration from a GUI within the program itself. Filesystem access is done through the GIO virtual file system layer whenever possible. Using advanced file typing and styling systems, gentoo determines how to display files in its listings, and also how to act on them. The package includes a set of over 120 unique handcrafted icons for many different types of files.
