Ubuntu 17.10 to Ship with Nautilus 3.24 File Manager, without Type-Ahead Search

It’s a known fact that Ubuntu is always shipping with an older Nautilus version because Canonical always includes some patches to offer certain functionality to users. And it looks like these patches need to be updated every time a new Nautilus version is out, though some of them have failed to work do to the file manager’s constant refactoring. Nautilus 3.24 will have numerous improvements that we’ve detailed for our readers earlier this week. It will launch next month on March 22, as part of the GNOME 3.24 desktop environment. At the moment, Canonical is using Nautilus 3.20.x for Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), as well as the upcoming Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) release.
