What is thunar?

Thunar is a new modern file manager for the Xfce Desktop  Environment.
It has been designed from the ground up to be fast and easy-to-use. Its
user interface is clean and intuitive, and does not include any
confusing or useless options. Thunar is fast and responsive with a good
start up time and directory load time. Thunar is accessible using
Assistive Technologies and is fully standards  compliant.


Release notes for 1.5.1
[Please note that this is a development release.]

Interesting release for a lot of users since this releases introduces
the much-requested tabs in Thunar. Furthermore the new side pane has
some important bugs fixed, the tool bar had a cleanup and is much more
compact now and there is a permanent delete option. There are also
various speed optimizations in thumbnail/icon handling and a number of
bugs fixed.

Have fun testing.
