Desktop icons just had a new release! Plenty of good things went in: Sergio fixed the “Open in Terminal” menu item not opening in the desktop folder, and also made the files appear from top to bottom, left to right, that more users were used to. Also, we discovered that the settings panel wasn’t getting translated, so Sergio fixed it too and now all translations are in place. We had another developer contributing too, Andrea Azzarone.
So it’s finally here, desktop icons release candidate for 1.0 is available now! This means that all the features we wanted for 1.0 are implemented and we freeze the implementation of new features. Now we will focus on polishing and removing noisy or unnecessary stuff in the UI, fix weird behaviours and UX, fix bugs, etc. What’s new? Tons of stuff! We added multimonitor support, HiDPI support, renaming of files, thumbnails support, DnD between files on the desktop, better rubberband selection… Honestly, more than I thought we could do.
