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 4.16.8
Sorry for the inconvenience,

I introduced a regression by 9165a61f (Dont execute files, passed via
command line due to security risks), leading to xfdesktop and appfinder
not able to launch files via thunar any more.
This should be fixed now.


- Activating Desktop Icon does not Use Default Application (Issue #575)
- Translation Updates: Spanish
