Updated Nautilus File Manager in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat
In Ubuntu 10.10, Maverick Meerkat was adopted from upstream a new version of Nautilus, the default file manager. Now, after the termination of adding functionality to Maverick (“feature freeze”), it is possible to familiarize with the presented changes.
In addition to many bug fixes, Nautilus in the next version of Ubunt is characterized by the following, as it is called in scientific circles, buns.
Expanding and collapsing folders in lists with the keys "+" and "-".
Passwords in sessions are now saved by default.
The caption "File Browser" is no longer added to the title bar.
Folder icons are now used as window icons in “spatial mode”.
When viewing the contents of the Recycle Bin in list mode, the “Trashed On” and “Original Location” columns are displayed:
"Cut" files are displayed now with a semi-transparent icon.
The default thumbnail size can now be set.
A new dialog is displayed when conflicts occur during copying or moving files.
The Recycle Bin displays the button to restore the selected files.
New icon for previewing sound files:
Playback stops when the mouse rolls off the icon.
Item “Unmount” is not displayed if there is an item “Extract” (“Eject”) or “Safe Removal” (“Safe Removal”).
