Catfish 1.0.2 Released

I’m happy to announce that Catfish 1.0.2 has been released.  Find out what’s new in this release!

What’s New?

I thought the delay in previous release announcements was embarrassing… but there have been several stable releases since my last post (0.6.1).  I’ll try to keep this brief.

New Features

  • Switch to toggle standard and preview modes
  • Search filter for directories

General Improvements

  • Full Python3 support
  • Improved locale and encoding support
  • Updated to support the latest PyGObject APIs (minimum 3.6)
  • Introduced SudoDialog to handle user authentication (shared with Mugshot)
  • Code cleanup, removed unused template code, improved installer
  • Improved list logic with item selection
  • Interface refresh, mimicking common gnome applications
  • Improved handling of symbolic icons
  • Improved strings
