Thus, the dual pane view, a mode in which two or more windows could be displayed side by side no longer available in recent versions. The developers say they aim to further simplify the interface, but many Ubuntu users are not talking about the return of functionality.

The discontent is not just heard. Among end users So give Ubuntu developer and Canonical employee Oliver Grawert to that Canonical wants Nautilus slide to the side and wants to switch to a new file system. This should not only get back a lot of functionality, but also optimized for the still ontwikkkeling Unity 8 interface.

Launchpad is now a project created for the new file manager. The aim is to replace Ubuntu 14.10, which should come out in October. Nautilus Release in the next LTS release in April is not feasible. Incidentally, the file system not only run on the desktop, but also on tablets and smartphones.
