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
Hidden files and folders option
Disabled predictive text on Rename, New Folder and Search boxes
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
