As many of you (i hope) remember, i came here some weeks ago presenting my own project, ncursesFM.
I'm here to tell you that thanks to your feedbacks, it has gained lots of new features and lots of fixes.
You can see yourself checking the changelog file (since 05 / 27 / 2016 entry, included): https://github.com/FedeDP/ncursesFM/blob/master/Changelog.
* helper is now context aware: it will change its content based on active tab modality.
* added some wiki pages https://github.com/FedeDP/ncursesFM/wiki (have a look!)
* added unicode support
* added internationalization support (for now en and it)
* per-user settings
* support for extracting pwd-protected archive if libarchive >= 3.2.0 is found (it depends upon which archive extension libarchive provides pwd support)
And really looooots of more improvements regarding visibility (active tab is now more highlighted), info (you can now show free space and mount options in device mode) , etc etc... way too long to be listed here.
Hope you like it :)
Moreover, i'd like to tell you that this project is kept alive by your own requests. I haven't got lots of ideas still, so if you have any suggestion/feature request, go ahead and open an issue on github, thanks!
PS: you may notice that i recently removed image previewing support. I'll quote myself here:
"I think it is useless to have features that work inconsistently between terminal applications/systems."
First, let me try to subjectively summarize the problem: Historically, the resources we get in GNU/Linux come from the distributions. Anything: executables, libraries, icons, wallpapers, etc. There’s been alternatives to all of those, but none has flourished as a globally adopted solution.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.6.3, Greg Kroah-Hartman informed the community about the availability of the fourteenth maintenance update for the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel series.
Hi folks, now is the time to show the achievements which kept me busy from a month during the coding period for my ‘Google Summer of Code’ project LabPlot Theme Manager and taught me so many things related to an open-source community (KDE). This was a wonderful experience for me to brush up my coding skills and grow up a little-bit as a programmer.
DigiKam earlier used DBus under Linux system, but its support under Windows and OS X made digiKam unstable. The database core implementation based on DBUS was only used with old KIOSalve which is now removed.
Thanks to a bug found in Spice's drag and drop implementation, I was able to improve the integration of our guest agent (spice-vdagent) with the Desktop Session on Linux and Windows. I enjoyed the process to solve those problems so I thought a blog post could be interesting as well.
Following the recent work we’ve been doing at Codethink in cooperation with Endless, it’s been a while now that we have the capability of building flatpak SDKs and apps for ARM architectures, and consequently also for 32bit Intel architectures.
ADI Engineering, which built the latest MinnowBoard Turbot version of the open-spec, Linux- and Android-ready MinnowBoard SBC for the Intel-backed MinnowBoard.org community, has revealed a major update. Pricing and a few other details are missing from the announcement tweet, but there are photos and a full spec list. The board will ship in the third quarter.
The keynote speaker for the openSUSE Conference today and Chief Executive Officer of SoftIron, Norman Fraser, Ph.D., made a big announcement about the release of a new powerful ARM server that comes with essential tools to get the 64-bit ARM development up and running, out-of-the-box.
From 22 to 26 June, the openSUSE Conference has been taking place in Nürnberg. There's been live video streams for those not in Bavaria while now the video recordings are being uploaded for your enjoyment at your convenience.
