The bugs closed in this release are:

  • Do not register "send to" as last used app (Bug #14118)
  • Use https where possible
  • Dont restart the folder monitor on each refresh (Bug #13364)
  • Fix XML declaratation in uca.xml (Bug #13623)
  • Always show the executable checkbox (Bug #15605)
  • Replace Trash action with Delete as needed (Bug #15352)

And there's also translation updates for Armenian, Finnish, Kazakh, Portuguese (Brazil), Swedish, Thai and Turkish.

One of the bugs, #13364, caused "ghost files" to remain after moving files. That can still happen in some cases. Bug #13364 addressed the issues related to the folder monitoring technology. Other problems remain. The remaining corner-case problems are tracked as bug #15704. There is no fix for this bug in thunar 1.8.8.

You can acquire the new Thunar technology from /thunar/1.8/.
