Re: Call for review: PCManFM is almost ready for a new release.


As a complete noob to Lubuntu (moving from Ubuntu/Gnome) I wonder if it would be possible to test this via a PPA before committing to a change for Oneiric.

Take note; I'm only an iso-tester so I'm clueless about the complexity involved, but I find pcmanfm quite easy to adapt to (basically just simple and intuitive) so I'm reluctant to see the devs make any changes that could possibly have a negative effect ;^)

I just want to see Lubuntu remain as stable as it is while confronting it's current challenges:

1) Becoming a full fledged member of the Ubuntu family.

2) IMHO maintaining a very feasible fall-back for those "turned off" by gnome3, gnome-shell, and/or unity :^)

3) Implementing the change to GTK+ 3.

Of course this is just an opinion from a true "end user" with a bit of testing experience.

Hi all,
I'm here to call for a review for PCManFM as the source code in git is
in quite good shape now.
Many known bugs are fixed and I did much refactor to the tabbed
browsing part and merge changes in tab-rework3 branch with master.
Please help test and update translations in various distros. If things
are ok, I propose a new release.

Some major changes:
1. "Reload Folder" is available now in View menu.
2. "Directory Tree" mode is available in side pane.
3. Filesystem size is updated in a more correctly and efficient way.
4. Many bugs causing crashes are fixed.
5. Shows a warning icon in toolbar when running as "root".
6. Supports menu keys.

minor changes:
1. Fixed some memory leaks.
2. ~ and / to move focus to location bar
3. Improve internal structure of PCManFM.
4. Code cleanup.

A new release as 0.9.9 is required. Please help review and test the code in git.
Thanks a lot.
