Nautilus gains Recent entry in its sidebar (Ubuntu 12.10)
Sometimes, as seen in various apps' development cycles, throughout a radical change, there is, first, a removal of various features, shortly followed by a refreshed stack of functionalities, with the main purpose of replenishing the targeted app's look&feel.
Nautilus removed numerous features and, starting with the 3.5.4 version, introduced a fancy look (featuring monochrome icons, "full" toolbar, search-as-you-type, etc) packed with new features, oriented not only at replacing the "old" ones but creating an overall up-to-date file manager.
Nautilus has received a new handy addition,
Recent, located under
Places, allowing the users to easily 1-click away access recently used items (folders, image files, text files, etc) in a dedicated window with "regular" look and details, identical to how they are displayed in a normal Nautilus window.
Recent, presents recently used files where various actions can be performed, like for instance, opening items and/or accessing their properties.
Locating one item from numerous recent files (directly from Nautilus, apart from the Dash's versatile search) is hassle-free, due to the new search-as-you-type's accurate and fast finding process, meaning, when in the
Recent view, typing a word, immediately hides the unmatched items, displaying only the relevant content.
