Back on track

After losing my laptop last month, I'm happy to report that fman is back on track: Version 0.5.3 is out. This release fixes the broken Arch Linux package and brings a few usability improvements. For instance, there is a new command for deleting files immediately instead of moving them to the Trash:

Most of the improvements were a direct result of user feedback. For a detailed overview, please see the Changelog.

It took a while to set fman's development environment back up. Two reasons: First, Dell make it incredibly difficult to buy a laptop. Second, fman's main development used to be on macOS; Now it will be on Linux. My new laptop (a Dell XPS) is gorgeous though:

Thankfully, fman is cross-platform and looks great on Ubuntu ;)

To the next release!

Michael started fman in 2016, convinced that we deserve a better file manager. fman's launch in 2017 was a huge success. But despite full-time work, it only makes $350 per month. The goal for 2018 is to fix this.
