Detwinner Linux Edition 0.2.0

Hello everyone!

Today, almost one year after the initial release, we’re happy to present the updated version of our open-source duplicate file finder for Linux systems.

Main changes in this version:

  • A warning will be shown in case if the deletion of a file fails.
  • Program name is now correctly displayed in the taskbar instead of Untitled window.
  • Deletion will not stop if one of the files was already deleted elsewhere.
  • Recent shortcut is not shown anymore in the places sidebar.
  • Application menu has been removed to align with GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.
  • Flatpak now supports interactions with the trash bin — so it’s re-enabled in the flatpak version of Detwinner.
  • URLs and copyright notices were updated.
