Thunar 1.10 Roadmap (Xfce 4.16)


  • Extend Thunarx API to be able to use emblems in thunar-plugins
    • Potential user: rabbit-vcs. Looks like for Nautilus that is already possible.
  • Easy to hide menu bar, tricky to get it back (Issue 174)
  • [ASSIGNED] Store view settings per directory (Issue 8)
    • Done for “view settings” and “sort order”
  • Security problem with *.desktop files (Issue 156)
  • Risk to delete stuff in tree-view on accident (Issue 195)
    • Because tree view folders and files on the right both are highlighted, it is not clear which one is focused
  • Display better error-dialog on bulk renamer (Issue 202)
  • Provide a collection of preinstalled custom actions, which can be enabled (Issue 245)
  • Symbolic icons for sidebar (Issue 252)
  • Replace systray file-operation progress item with statusnotifier


  • [ASSIGNED] Merge all context menus into one (Issue 198)
    • Done for almost all context menus : only one missing: Bookmarks view

Important Bugs


  • On multi-file select, only the last one is opened (Bug 2487)
  • Replace deprecated G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_MOVED in ThunarFile and ThunarFolder (Bug 16328, More details)
  • Notification loop between xfsettings and thunar (Bug 15305)
  • Ghost files remain after moving files on a sftp remote (Bug 15704)
  • Quit confirmation message when multiple tabs are open (Bug 15758)
  • Custom action keyboard shortcut doesn't use the current, selected, path and file (Bug 15119)
  • Revert gtk2 / gtk3 compatibility fixes Commit 1 Commit 2
  • Prepare for Gtk4: Replace GtkAction/GtkActionEntry/GtkUiManager (Bug 16654)
  • Deselecting multiple files by clicking on filename takes too much time on detailed list (Issue 345)


  • Use xfce4-notifyd instead of LIBNOTIFY
    • Reason: a more generic dependency is preferable thunar users running in other DEs than Xfce. Also, what are the benefits anyway?
