SpaceFM Testing: New Queue
The next branch of SpaceFM (what will become the 0.8.1 release) has some new queuing capabilities for running tasks that took shape pretty well. It can use some thorough testing on a variety of systems – now that SpaceFM is more widely used I’m trying to keep the master branch fairly stable. So if you can help with testing, you can install the next branch by following the BUILD NEXT instructions in the README (or on Arch Linux use the AUR spacefm-git package). I think you’ll have fun playing with it (I know I am). Even if you installed SpaceFM from a package, you can try next out by simply pasting those commands as-is into a terminal (even paste them all the lines at once if you like, just like a single command). Then you can always reinstall the 0.8.0 package to revert.
It’s running great in my tests, but when using the next branch it’s good to update every day or so, so you get the latest adjustments. You can always see what’s happening in next.
If you’d just like to read about the new features, or use the docs to compare with actual behavior, the next manual has a new section which fully documents the Task Manager. So if you’ve always wondered what Tasks|Errors|Stop If First does, now you can know its secrets.
Also, you may have noticed the new Donate buttons on this blog and the SpaceFM website. Obviously I don’t develop this software for money, but I do invest hundreds of hours in it, so even if a small tip or donation rolls in occasionally it does help me out. So thanks for keeping me in mind. Also, by request I added Flattr, which is a microdonations alternative to PayPal. Looks interesting if you haven’t seen it, and it was easy to work with. The Donations page has the skinny.
