From the removal of key features in Nautilus 3.8 to the addition of some nice things in 3.10 that boost the strongest part of GNOME Files. Searching.
A bunch of new design wireframes showing what the next step of Nautilus/Files search system development will be.
Isn’t it amazing how much more user friendly webApps are comparing to the Desktop ones? And the irony is that Desktop Apps developers are in general more qualified from the Web ones.
This is the first release of Nautilus towards 3.10 and is quite smooth from the user point of view.
Files 3.8 will now have an option to add a TreeView in your ListView, which I speculate it was there in 3.4 (I never used it) and it was removed in 3.6. This doesn’t equally replace the TreeView, but is a nice addition anyway. Cosimo also made a big clean up and he removed NautilusDesktopBackground […]
GNOME Files (aka Nautlus) 3.8 won’t have any massive changes as happened in 3.6 and probably the improved and recursive search will be the most noticeable change. But Files integration with Shell totally revamps the way you are discovering files in your system. This is one of my favorites things in GNOME 3.8 and is up to […]
William Jon McCann pushed a while ago some nice patches in G-Files that allow us to drag and drop files to any folder in sidebar. That commit closes bug #692097 and improves further the DnD and expected behavior in GNOME. Although there is more road ahead.
GNOME Files 3.7.3 release doesn’t bring radical changes, but some improvements mostly in hidden files and it closes an 8-years old bug (Share “show hidden” option with Nautilus #143599)!! What is the best new “feature” for end users in my opinion is a just a small detail. The replacement of “Delete” Label, with “Remove from Recent”, […]
Cossimo Cecchi announced the availability of Gnome Files 3.6.3 which bring 6 bug fixes. Martin Pitt released PyGObject 3.4.2 a bug fix release for Gnome 3.6.2. Also JHBuild introduces a “pygobject-python2″ Python2 lib for backward compatibility to Python 2. Dan Williams announced the initial release of libqmi, an on-going effort to get a library providing easy […]
Support for Cloud Services is a first class citizen for Gnome3. However there is an unlimited number of web-services with different set of connectivity and syncing standards and APIs, which in their huge majority aren’t open source and that makes the implementation of local Apps that support them quite hard. This time Gnome and Allan […]
Ok, the title of the post looks stupid. Why do I need a “How To” just to create an empty document in Nautilus? Well, you have noticed that if you open Context Menu with Right Click, you won’t get a create “Empty Document: option. Many people seem to be confused about this behavior of Nautilus […]
Files 3.8 will definitively focus to improve search and make discovery and selection of files easier. The very first patches have already arrived in 3.7.1 but the best are to come! Lapo Calamandrei made some designs for Files search
Gnome 3.6 cycle closed with two impressive releases, Gnome Shell and Nautilus 3.6.1. Gnome 3.8 opens and brings again impressing improvements to these two modules taking into account is just the beginning. Cosimo Cecchi forces us again to use his “face” as he did all the job. Nautilus 3.7.1 brings again the recursive search and personally I made […]
The first Nautilus maintenance release of 3.6 cycles is out ..and it was kinda a personal case of Cosimo Cecchi as he worked a *lot* on this release. This version is the largest release ever made in a x.x.1 cycles for Nautilus, with approximately 70 commits and lots of major bug fixes. To compare, the average number of […]
Recently a discussion in Gnome Mailing Lists took place about sync Files with OwnCloud. That might isn’t interesting to the most of us -besides who will abandon Google Drive, Ubuntu One, DropBox for a personal cloud storage service? As I have set up lots of OwnCloud instances for companies that I work for, the answer […]
Gnome Files 3.6 is far from completed and is more like an experimental version of what is coming next, in 3.8. Overall, I think it is an improvement over 3.4 but this has to do in what way you’re using it. Some things are done faster in new Files and some things are done slower. For […]
Sushi is a handy file previewer that has been around since 3.2, but some of you may never heard of. I installed it today under 3.5.91 to see how it works with the new Nautilus and everything went well. Sushi lets you preview many kind of different files straight from Nautilus without having to open […]
Despite the many and controversial removals, Files 3.6 comes with exciting new features that will make you forgot its predecessor in no time! While Files is “just a file manager”, Gnome Team has huge plans for it in the short future. If you’re running Ubuntu or Mint there is no reason to stick with the old […]
This post isn’t against the ZDNet Network or against any of its writers. I use ZDNet, David Meyer and Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols as nothing more than an example to show you that you have to be cautious about what are you reading in high traffic magazines relatively to Gnome. In any case this is not […]
Few hours ago McCann pushed on Git a new patch for Nautilus. This time there is nothing to complain for :) Files get some new buttons on the toolbar to directly access options from there instead of navigating in Menus/Sub-Menus (bug#680985).
