 It would be nice if we allow to sort by extension. See [[http://​foo-projects.org/​pipermail/​thunar-dev/​2010-November/​004796.html|this]] request on the mailing list. Perhaps we can also allow plugins to install their own columns. That's more complicated and a separate (but partly related) feature though. It would be nice if we allow to sort by extension.

-Completed: 0% \\ +Currently it is possible to mount remote locations, but they don't appear in the tree or shortcuts pane. There are also other related problems in Thunar that do no allow re-mounting locations etc.

-===== Integrate Remote Locations into the Side and Tree Pane =====+Plan is to wrap the functionality of drives, volumes ​and mounts and implement this in the various places of Thunar.
  
-Right now, there is no way to “bookmark” remote locations. Thunar only allows directories as bookmarks. I've heard reports that re-using the existing bookmarks concept for was found to be inappropriate and confusing for end users. http://​www.bomahy.nl/​hylke/​blog/​clutter-in-nautilus-sidebar/​ might be a good starting point for a better side pane. I'm conerned about high numbers of partitions in the side pane though. We probably want something that can be expanded/​collapsed better, e.g. by grouping partitions per drive using a custom composite widget. This would also have user experience benefits as people would be able to mount/​unmount entire drives at once and not just individual partitions.+Completed100% \\
