fman 1.1.9 fixes many bugs

fman 1.1.9 just came out. It fixes quite a few important bugs. Check out the Changelog to see what's new.

Meanwhile, work is underway on the second-most requested feature: Filtering files as you type. This lets you very quickly hone in on the files you want to work with. Say you have a directory with the following folder/files:

  • apple/
  • banana.txt
  • bananajuice.txt

When you type p, only apple/ remains in the list of files and p is shown/highlighted. When you then press Escape, all files are visible again. When you then type banana, only banana.txt and bananajuice.txt are visible. Here is a very preliminary screenshot:

Implementing this feature will likely take a little. Reading this blog, you'll be among the first to find out when it's done :-)

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.
