== TODO == === tasks that always apply === * update documentation and homepage/wiki/on-line user guide * find solutions for FIXMEs in the code * find & fix memory leaks * additional translations (ja, fr, de, ru, pl, zh_CN exist now) Volunteers welcome ! === probable changes === * code restucturing and clean up === worth considering === * support regular expressions in rename-plugin * update tracker-plugin as tracker’s API matures * provide atk/gail assistive-technology support in all relevant places * plugin-based support for general namespaces, not limited to root of the mounted filesystem, e.g. archives, remote filesystems (via gio/gvfs etc), collected items (probably tagged), chroot === low priority things that can be done when there’s time and interest === * add missing API documentation * complete documentation about action arguments * support non-english-ascii letters (replacing dDfFpP etc) in macros * find a way to have those small lines in the treeview as kde/qt or windows provide them * add tooltips to context menus where now missing * find a way to tap into shell’s completion process, to enhance command-line tab completion (not directly possible with bash) * support theming for custom icons === changes that may not be worth the effort === * interrogate shared-configuration data for more filetype handlers (but FDO spec is still too immature) * strictly incremental update of displayed filelists (if a reliable change-monitor ever becomes readily and widely available …) * show filetype/dir icons in file lists * undo, for completed file operations (needs lots more cacheing of information about processed items and anything affected by the operation) * custom formatting of hyperlinks displayed in the output pane === known bugs/problems === * some default keybindings might not work, if other things’ bindings prevail * auto-refreshing file panes (without FAM/gamin) does not notice item size, mode, ownership changes (consequence of the way the fs works) * auto-refreshing with gamin does not notice most changes involving symlinks (gamin bug) * auto-refreshing with gamin and gnome (at least) and dnotify backend does not notice changes to the trash dir (gamin bug) * sizing of any command-line combobox in a vertical toolbar is illogical (wishlist = gtk support for “drop-across”) * hard links are processed as separate files * refreshing a filelist changes the access time of the displayed directory * for some? gtk versions, recreating filelists creates leaked X memory (gtk bug?) which, if repeated too often, can lead to swap-thrashing and even a hang * gtk (in later versions at least) behaves badly when dragging a column-header boundary to change the column width – at first it thinks it’s dragging selected item(s) ! * the output pane captures stdout and stderr messages from child processes, but not from any other process started by a child (“grandchild”) * a command which in turn causes another command to be run using the same glib functionality (g_spawn_async() etc) can hang, because completion of the spawned child command is not reported to its parent application – maybe some intermingling of child exit signals * mnemonic activation of toolbar buttons (when their labels are shown) does not cycle focus between buttons with the same mnemonic key, as it should do. Seems to be a gtk problem related to GtkPaned
