USBManager 1.0.0 Release

Avaliação: 2 votos, 5,00 média.
Hello all! After a long Release Candidate Freeze, I'm happy to announce the USBManager 1.0.0 release. Who was following the 1.0-rc version will notice that there are few visibly changes. A great part of 1.0.0 improvements are "under the hood", making the application more stable and fast.

I the past months few bugs were reported, most were simple and didn't cause any glitch in USBManager, except for bug #423476. #423476.

The 'system tray' gives you the feature to mount/umount the device with only two clicks. With this feature you're able to call the main USBManager interface very quickly.

A good suggestion is put USBManager to start on the tray with the operational system, so it can monitor all your USB device activity.

In order to have more formating options, I suggest you to install the following tools: mlabel, ntfsprogs and e2label.




Improvements

Visibly the USBManager has the following improvements:


Better support for Red Hat based distributions (as Fedora).
This new funcionality was resulted by the work on Bug #423476. As Red Hat based distributions does not use gksudo was created a routine to pre-select the proper command used to "become root". Actually this routine searches for the following functions: gksudo, gksu and beesu. If none of those are supported by you Linux distribution, please report a bug here, inform which graphical front-end for sudo can be used and I'll provide the correction immediately.
New Disk usage window design.
The Disk Usage window now has colored bars, used to highlight the biggest files and folders. Also, a device macro analysis was added, providing and overview of the total number of files, average size of files, total number of folders and average size of folders.

The most important non-visual improvements are highlighted below:

GOBjects Signals
All objects inside USBManager communicate with signals, reducing the usage of pointers nad bringing more code flexibility.
On demand analysis
The Disk Usage tool was modified to provide file/folder scanning and analysis only when a folder is selected. This modification was made to reduce the Disk Usage Tool startup time and making it more fast and user friendly.
Community translations:
USBManager started using Rosetta, launchpad's translation tool. With this, the USBManager translations can be made trough the Web without the need to install some additional software. The translated strings are sporadicly merged into the USBManager's code.
