File Manager 0.2.3 Beta Released for Nokia N9/N950 – MeeGo Harmattan

The Application File Manager for the Nokia N9/N950 (MeeGo Harmattan) has been released as a Beta now! What that means according to Nik Rolls is “File Manager has reached Beta stage! This means it is pretty stable and feature-rich, however just needs a little public testing to iron out any bugs I may not have found yet.”

As you can see, there’s been a reasonable version jump since the last release. On using the application you won’t notice too many changes as most of the modifications are in the back-end, but the good news is that they pave the way for the new cloud features which will be coming in future versions.

The new features in 0.2.3 are:

  • Splash screens implemented to improve perceptive loading speed. Splash screens should reflect current theme (light, dark) and orientation
  • New modular threaded back-end to pave the way for other sources and to increase speeds
  • Folder searching
  • Hidden files and folders option
  • Disabled predictive text on Rename, New Folder and Search boxes
  • Graphical enhancements
  • Automatic updates
  • Fixed bug where cancelling an ongoing operation didn’t close the progress window
  • Added Swedish language translation (thanks to Felix Woxström from MeegoSweden)
  • Added About page to credit creator and translators
    Still to do by official Store launch:

  • Some icons don’t load on first screen
  • Improve loading speeds
  • Any other bugs you may find
