Network management workflow (or, GSoC report #4)

Things are moving absolutely faster than I could expect. Since the last report, I was able to improve the new Other Locations view so much!

I could spend a few boring paragraphs trying to explain how things work now… but no. I love videos. People love videos. Technology enabled us to make videos, so let’s watch a video!

You know what’s best? It’s really getting in shape for merge. It also fixed a very annoying bug in Nautilus (though this work is happening in Gtk+). Next step is Nautilus!

    Some people – and we may be ornery, cranky old people waving sticks at the youngsters on our lawns, but we’re people nonetheless! – can’t stand videos and would much rather have the boring paragraphs next time. I can read something 5x faster and with much less disruption to my workflow than I can watch a video of it.

    1. I by no means meant to offend anyone with this paragraph, and I apologise if you felt offended in any way. There is a list of changes in the description of the video, if you care to look.

  2. Hey, would it make sense for the samba “root” (or whatever smb:/// is) to appear inside the disclosure triangle ? – or … well, some way of browsing the network routes – I guess it would need some design ?

    1. I’m porting the exact same functionality of the old Nautilus’ “Connect to Server” dialog. The dialog also saved “smb:///” root, and so I did.

      I don’t want to break with the current workflow people may have developed with Nautilus, so I will keep it like that until we find a very good reason to not keep “smb:///” & cia.
