Hello,

Version 4.5.21 of the GNOME file manager has been released. Only bug fixes this time.

* Where

ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/mc
ftp://ftp.nuclecu.unam.mx/linux/local/devel

* What is new

Here is a list of the bugs fixed and the new features in 4.5.21:

- I changed the version number :-)

- Icons changing randomly bug has been fixed. Reminder to hackers: const is a useful tool.

- Desktop devices are fixed (various different bugs were reported about this, in various shapes, they were all caused because I had forgotten readlink semantics). Fixed.

- More artwork from Tigert is included.

- New global file: $prefix/etc/mc.global.

You can use this file to configure the directories that gmc should *not* scan and should *not* even try to scan.

We already had support for various popular formats, now a sysadmin can configure this for all the users on the system.

Enjoy,
Miguel.
