The new e_go
I was briefly introduced to you by the owner of this blog a few posts ago. My name is Yossi, I’m on EFL team and I’m assigned to E. In the last couple of month I was entering the world of Enlightenment by fixing bugs to learn the whole thing, just like in those old Kong-Foo movies. Last week, Michael (e-realeasemanager) kindly made me a co-author of this blog so I’ll be posting (duh.. ranting) regularly. I even almost got my commit rights, but fate stood in my way. (sorry zmike, I had to :)) )
My latest patches were in the somewhat dusty corner of e – the file manager (e_fm) . A small bug revealed that the whole selection mechanism in e_fm is faulty and neglected and It had to be changed (both functionally and code-efficient) to fit the common standard for file managers (Such as nautilus for example). The desktop navigation between the icons with direction keys is changed also since its(Desktop) just e_fm in custom mode. Now movement between the icons is straightforward – moving to the closest in that direction in a 90 degree arc.
