Polo v17.7.1 (Beta 9)

Polo v17.7.1 (Beta 9) is now available. It can be installed from my PPA or by downloading installers from the Releases page on GitHub.

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install polo-file-manager

What's New

Option to select terminal shell

Fish is the default shell for terminal panes. Other installed shells can be selected from dropdown.

Selection & Filtering

Items can now be selected and filtered by name. This makes it easier to find and select items in large folders. Simply click on the list view or icon view, and start typing to select items that match the name. A selection bar will pop up at the bottom of the pane with an option to either select or filter. Refer to the wiki page for more details.

Statusbar Improvements

Statusbar now displays count of selected items, and uses icons for indicating file and directory counts.
