Nautilus Actions : The New Layout (stage 2)

The last poll results seems to have shown that you prefer the notebook layout. So we will likely choose this one, but before we'd like to propose a new layout based on the notebook one and which fixes a part of the counterparts we had with the previous design.

As for the first report, we still would really appreciate your comments about what you think about these two new solutions and which one seems to be the best to adopt or if you have better ideas, they are welcome too, of course. A new poll has been setup to get your opinions about the best choice to adopt.

Following several request about usability problem found in the previous versions of Nautilus-actions concerning the size of the Nact dialogs which don't fit in a 800x600 screen, we are proposing two solutions to this issue on this page.

Nautilus-actions : Proposal for inclusion in Gnome 2.14

Since I've received many positive comments about Nautilus-actions when I first announced it on GnomeDesktop.org and on this site, I've decided to officially proposed it for inclusion in the future release of Gnome.

You can follow the process in the Gnome wiki page of Gnome 2.14.

Aside from some little known problems, it has been quite well accepted.

Note that it is just a proposal, Nautilus-actions is not yet officially part of Gnome. The final decision will be taken during the Feature and Module Freeze on 18th of January according to the official schedule.

Nautilus Actions : Two new articles about the project on the net

I've found some new interresting articles on two blogs which describe two ways of using Nautilus-actions.

The first one decribes how to (un)mount an ISO file with Nautilus-actions and the second one is about transfering files via bluetooth.

You can find all these links on the External Resources page.

Nautilus Actions : New release available (V0.99)

A pre-release of the future 1.0 version of Nautilus-actions is available : V0.99, for your testing pleasure :).

This version has been completely refactored for a big part of it, to make it more integrated into the Gnome Desktop.
In particular, NACT, the configuration tool, has been totally recoded in C instead of python, in order to share the common configuration code.
The configuration is now stored in GConf, the Gnome official configuration database to improve performance and integration.

I would like to thanks Rodrigo Moya for his help, advices and code contributions, and for the promotion he made to Nautilus-actions during all the process of this brand new version.

You can check out this new release in the Download section. The packages for the different supported distributions will be made available as soon as their respective packagers will send me their updates, so stay tuned !

Nautilus Actions : Great articles about the project on the net

I've recently found some great articles on the net reviewing nautilus-actions and giving some good example of its use.

First, ArsTechnica talk about an action to print a document with OpenOffice via nautilus. An entry of Matthias Adler's blog deals with a way to convert Postscript documents into PDF. And finally, a post on Ubuntu-fr forum, talk about an action to install debian packages from nautilus.
