Eel 2.2.3.1
Nautilus 2.2.3.1

Eel and Nautilus 2.2.3.1, "We love you, list view" are released

This release continues the work on the UI bugs that make nautilus
tougher to use.  In particular we've focused on the list view, a
long-neglected part of the nautilus family.  Anybody using the list
view on a regular basis should upgrade, we think you'll be pleased.

Here is a partial list of the changes in 2.2.3.  See the NEWS file for
more:

* List view mouse behavior is much improved.  Drag and Drop is more
  natural, single click mode is usable, and selection behaves more like
  selection in the icon view.

* The list view doesn't cut off bits of icons anymore.

* List and icon view both have keynav and mouse selection improvements.

* Easier to trigger auto scrolling during drag and drop in the icon
  view

* Much better thumbnail queue handling. Visible thumbnails are
  prioritized.

* Show volume and free space in the property dialog for directories

* Clean up by name doesn't leave icons outside the screen anymore

* Automatic notes emblem (requires gnome-icon-theme 1.0.2)

* ... and more
