The last bug fix update for Dolphin 2.2 has been shipped recently. Here is a summary of the changes that you can enjoy if you upgrade:
- Bug 320823: Rename the right item when items are added to the view while renaming. See git commit 4de9a233, review request 110909.
- Bug 319912: Do not rename files unexpectedly when changing the URL while renaming. See git commit 5948dc0f, review request 110908.
- Bug 310705, bug 312014: Ensure that switching to “Sort by Type” takes effect without reloading the view. See git commit 735c046d, review request 111004.
- Bug 320897: Prevent that the rubber band selection rectangle gets a width or height of zero pixels. See git commit 22d93e8f, review request 111144.
- Bug 321234: Allow renaming multiple files without providing one or more ‘#’ as a placeholder for a number if all extensions are different. This was an “accidental” feature that we were not aware of at all until a user reported that it had been broken by a recent bug fix. See git commit 6f2e1403, review request 111079.
- Bug 316209: Prevent possible infinite recursion in the ViewProperties constructor, which caused crashes on MacOS. See git commit 04229f8f, review request 111182.
- Bug 307336: When dragging a file from a search result to KMail, use the correct URL. See git commit c847aacf, review request 111209.
- Bug 321198: Make searching recent files work correctly. See git commit 25a2255e.
Moreover, Dawit Alemayehu, who has fixed an amazing number of kdelibs bugs that affect file management, made two more commits last month which:
- Bug 317676: Dolphin freezes/hangs when copying large files. See git commit bf2bb486, review request 110834.
- Bug 299156: Handle ramfs mounts correctly so copying files to them works. See git commit af114cc9, review request 111115.
These improvements were contributed and/or tested by Dawit Alemayehu, Emmanuel Pescosta, Kurt Hindenburg, and Vishesh Handa. Thanks for your help! If I forgot anyone, please let me know.
Unfortunately, I’m unable to attend Akademy, but I hope that everyone who is in Bilbao has a good time there!
