Thunar 1.6 Roadmap (Xfce 4.12)
[FINISHED] Support multiple file properties
Add support for file information if > 1 file is selected in the view. See this post for more information and the final results.
Completed: 100% (merged 16-9-2012)
[FINISHED] Invert Selection
Select the not-selected items in the view.
Completed: 100% (merged 19-9-2012)
Sort by Extension
It would be nice if we allow to sort by extension. See 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.
There is no suitable gio function to recover the extension, because extensions should also match the content-type
[FINISHED] Drop User Directories
We've decided to drop users dirs entirely and instead show user-defined bookmarks in the
Go menu. We leave the choice of what to appear in the menu to users.
[FINISHED] Improvements in Volume Handling
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.
Plan is to wrap the functionality of drives, volumes and mounts and implement this in the various places of Thunar.
[FINISHED] Improved Shortcuts Side Pane
Shortcuts side pane is a bit of a mess and does not support remote locations.
Related item in the Design SIG: shortcuts-pane
Probably the most requested feature in Thunar.
