Nautilus-Actions 3.2.3 is out

We are pleased, happy and proud to announce the latest stable release of Nautilus-Actions!

What is it ?

Nautilus-Actions is a Nautilus extension whose principal function is to allow the user to add arbitrary actions to the file manager context menus. These actions may be organized in menus and submenus, exported and shared with other desktop environments.

What is new in this release ?

Nautilus-Actions 3.2.3 is mainly a bugfix release.

Some translations have been updated.

See NEWS and the full ChangeLog (or on the Gnome site) for all details.

We need you !

Yes, you can help Nautilus-Actions.

Since 2.30.0 version, Nautilus-Actions let the user freely choose to display or not the toolbars in the Nautilus-Actions Configuration Tool.

For now, NACT toolbars only contain items which have a icon, because:

  1. a toolbar item without an icon is a bit sad;
  2. user is free to display or not text besides icons;
  3. do not have an icon for a toolbar button would be incompatible with Gnome HIG.

As I a a very bad icon designer, you can help us by designing some icons for menu items which don't have one yet.

Each new item with an icon means a new item available in its toolbar.

With enough available items, we will add a user preference to let the user exactly choose which item he/she wishes see in its toolbars.

Your work will be of course copyrighted (see About box, Artists tab), but you have to put it under one free licence (CC is the most common for this type of work).

Thanks in advance for all the community users.

GSettings migration

What is GSettings and why do I must migrate to ?

GSettings is the new standard/library/protocol Gnome uses to store application preferences. It has been first released with Glib 2.26, available e.g. with Fedora 14.

As a consequence, GConf, which used to be the historical standard/library/protocol for storing application preferences, will be sooner or later, and, I am afraid, rather sooner than later, deprecated.

As a Nautilus extension, Nautilus-Actions is heavily based on Gnome standards, and must follow the evolution of its libraries, in order to be able to provide its users a full Gnome experience.
