What is thunar-volman?

The Thunar Volume Manager is an extension for the Thunar file manager,
which enables automatic management of removable drives and media. For
example, if thunar-volman is installed and configured properly, and you
plug in your digital camera, it will automatically launch your preferred
photo application and import the new pictures from the camera into your
photo collection.


Release notes for 0.5.1

This is a quick follow-up release on 0.5.0 which had a weird bug related
when not built without debug features, resulting in many block devices
not being detected properly.

For the hackers amongst us: Somehow, g_udev_device_get_devtype()
returned a /dev node instead of e.g. "disk" when there were no prior
calls to g_udev_device_get_property().
