Xfce?s Apps Update for March 2021 Covers New Releases of Thunar, Xfdashboard, and Gigolo

The development team behind the widely used and lightweight Xfce desktop environment have done a great job this month keeping several important apps and plugins updated with new features, improvements, bug fixes, and updated translations. The star of this month is Thunar, Xfce?s default file manager, which received not one but three maintenance updates to version 4.16 that re-introduce alternative shortcuts for the zoom functionality, add the ability to select the copied files after copy operation, prevent it from merging folders when creating a copy with same name, add the ability to reload the current directory before selecting new files, add the ability to hide the ?properties? menu-item for unmounted devices, and revamp the documentation to modernize and uniform it across components.
