I’ve gotten mails from a number of readers asking questions like “Why E18?” and “What’s going to be new in E18?” and “When will E18 be released?”
I don’t want to provide too many spoilers at this point for the incredibly cool and top secret open source things that we’re working on, but I’ll post one screenshot today of a little something I like to call Antognolli Mode:
We have this crazy thing where, to set a path for the filemanager, we provide both a “device” and a relative path. Combined, they’re supposed to determine where the filemanager navigates to. This is problematic, because in some cases we use fake devices, such as a user’s homedir, and this screws up symlink navigation quite badly.
Now they don’t.
I think all the keyboard gadget functionality bugs are finally squashed now. This was an extremely annoying issue to fix, however.
Now restoring bindings of any sort to their defaults will re-grab them from the corresponding system profile, or the standard desktop profile if the current profile is not a system profile.
Other Improvements Today:
- Bindings are now stored in a separate file and should now be immune to other config wipes
- Up/Down keys are no longer wrongly intercepted when using filemanager with typebuf open
- Navigate menu “No listable items” items are now clickable
