What is thunar?

Thunar is a 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 4.15.0
This is a development release of Thunar aiming the upcoming release of
Xfce 4.16.

As you may have noticed, Thunar's versioning scheme changed to follow
the format adopted by other Xfce core components. We hope this doesn't
cause any problem for packagers (since 4.15.0 > 1.8.15) and simplifies
how to reason about compatibility between components.

This release includes all fixes and improvements present in Thunar 1.8.x
plus the changes listed below. Before going into details, I would like
to thank the usual hard work of translators and the many contributions
from Theo, Reuben, Cyrille and Yousuf, thank you all, we really
appreciate your efforts.

Oh, with regards stability, it's pretty good, I've been using git master
for while now, but due big changes carried by Alexander (in preparation
for gtk4 and making the code easier to maintain) expect a couple of
rough edges.
We hope to get feedback (and bug reports) from early adopters as soon as
possible in order to fix all regressions in time for Xfce 4.16 ;)
