OneFinger - The One File Manager
2 aug 2005.
I forgot to put a link to the changelog for OneFinger 5, released yesterday. Here it is.
1 aug 2005: OneFinger 5 released.
In this release, the user interface has changed so much as to justify a new major version number. Tab widgets are now used extensively in order to minimize clutter, and the "popup menus everywhere" idiom, introduced in version 4, has been abandoned.
The screenshots page has been rewritten to accurately describe the new version.
25 mar 2005: OneFinger 4 released.
This is a major new release. The interface was redesigned to a big extent. OneFinger is much faster, and less cluttered. Some wishes from users have been fulfilled. If you did not like OneFinger, it is the right time to give it another try.
Please delete the ~/.one-finger directory before launching the new version. This is important to ensure a correct behavior.
Please notice the screenshots page is now very outdated. The interface and usage has changed dramatically since that page was written. I will try to update that page as soon as possible.
The complete list of changes will appear here in a few hours.
22 mar 2005. There are some major changes in CVS. Who wants to try them should delete the ~/.one-finger directory before running the program.
15 feb 2005: OneFinger 3.4 released. Major new features and minor bugfixes.
The complete list of changes will soon appear in the usual place.
12 feb 2005: OneFinger 3.3 released. Major new features and minor bugfixes. Also, a lot of polish. The screenshots must still be updated.
The complete list of changes will soon appear here.
11 feb 2005: I recently had to slow down development dramatically. However, there are some important new features in CVS. But I need to fix a bug before releasing a new version.
I also added a small section in this page, describing an overlooked feature of OneFinger: the search box.
17 dec 2004: OneFinger 3.2 released. Major new features and bugfixes. The list of changes will soon appear here.
5 dec 2004: OneFinger 3.1 released. This is mainly a bug fix release. Some people were having a crash on startup. Some other people complained about the panel flashing being too disturbing. Please let me know if you still have problems.
About the new features: a new action "Open directory in terminal" was added.
3 Dec 2004: OneFinger 3.0 released. With this release, OneFinger is a completely new program: it does not require knowledge of the shell language anymore. Instead, it has two "modes": MIME mode and CLI mode. CLI mode is like the old OneFinger; MIME mode is more similar to traditional file-managers (but with the benefits of the history panel and the program panel).
The whole site has been rewritten for the occasion, starting with this page. Be my guest! :-)
A more detailed list of changes will soon appear here.
5 nov 2004: OneFinger 2.4 released. This release fixes a major bug, and introduces a major new feature: OneFinger now knows the files you opened with any KDE application. This means that the history panel now also shows files opened outside OneFinger. For example, if you open a text file in KWrite, with KWrite's file menu, the file immediately shows in OneFinger's history panel. And the files in this panel can be completely manipulated, as if you were looking at them from their own konqueror window.
A more detailed list of changes will soon appear here.
5 nov 2004: OneFinger 2.3.2 released. One major speed-up and one major new feature. The list of changes will soon appear here.
4 nov 2004: the screenshots page and this page have been modified to better point out some unique features of OneFinger.
4 nov 2004: OneFinger 2.3.1 released. One minor bugfix: the listbox items were not highlighted on mouseover when selected. This could be disturbing.
3 nov 2004: OneFinger 2.3 released. Major new features in this release. Upgrading is a must. The list of changes will soon appear here.
2 nov 2004: kicker applet 1.2.3. There was a problem with sourceforge that caused the "kicker applet" package to be unusable (the configure file was missing). This is true for both version 1.1 and 1.2 of the kicker applet. I have uploaded the applet again now, and I changed the version number to 1.2.3 to avoid confusions. So, the current kicker applet 1.2.3 should work.
2 nov 2004: Version 2.2.2 released. Two major bugfixes were done: drag and drop was not working, and the "close terminated output windows" button wasn't working either. Sorry for the inconvenience.
1 nov 2004: version 2.2.1 released. Fixed a major bug which caused OneFinger to crash at startup if you were not using the "nuvola" icon theme for KDE.
1 nov 2004: version 2.2 released. Major new features and major bugfixes. The screenshots page has been updated for the occasion, with new pictures and explanations. The installation instructions in the download page have been rewritten too. The updated list of changes will soon appear here.
30 oct 2004: version 2.1 released. Major new features and minor bugfixes. The updated list of changes will soon appear here.
28 oct 2004: A new screenshot of the CVS version is up. OneFinger can now use the KDE icons. The difference is noticeable.
27 oct 2004: version 2.0 released. Major new features and major bugfixes. The changelog is available here.
24 oct 2004: A new screenshot of the CVS version is up. The only thing preventing a new release is that the docs aren't ready. Contributions are welcome.
13 oct 2004: The OneFinger kicker applet is now available in CVS. The applet integrates OneFinger into KDE; it can replace the kde taskbar and allows dragging files from external apps to OneFinger. The applet is meant to be used with the CVS version of OneFinger. See the "download" section for info how to get the applet.
8 Oct 2004: added screenshot of the upcoming 2.0 version.
25 sep 2004: Version 1.9 released. There are major new features. Most notable:
24 sep 2004: Version 1.8 released. This release contains major new features. Briefly: 1. added mime support to better suggest programs; 2. added a new panel which can act (A) as a taskbar (B) paste WIds in the command line (this is useful to simulate drag and drop, thus bypassing the individual programs' file managers).
20 sep 2004: Packages for mandrake cooker 9.1 are now available.
19 Sep 2004: Version 1.1.1 released. There are some major bugfixes from 1.0, and some new features as well.
