More Info:

 Dolphin is a file manager for KDE focusing on
usability. The main features of Dolphin are:
- Navigation bar for URLs, which allows to
navigate quickly through the file hierarchy.
- View properties are remembered for each folder.
- Split of views is supported.
- Network transparency.
- Undo/redo functionality.
- Renaming of a variable number of selected items
in one step.

Dolphin is not intended to be a competitor to
Konqueror: Konqueror acts as universal viewer
being able to show HTML pages, text documents,
directories and a lot more, whereas Dolphin
focuses on being only a file manager. This
approach allows to optimize the user interface for
the task of file management.

Dolphin is currently in beta stage, but provides
already most features for daily usage. The final
1.0 release is scheduled for end of this year.


- Renaming of a variable number of selected items
in one step is supported now.

- Translations for Estonian, French, Hebrew and
Polish (thanks to Ain Vagula, Stephane Lesimple,
Patrice Tremblay, Itai Alter and Piotr Malinski).

- When dragging a file A above file B, file A is
copied into the directory of file B instead of
replacing file B itself (Bug 1559793).

- Use larger icons in bookmarks menu applied, this
allows a faster access (patch submitted by Patrice

- The default bookmark for 'System' has been
replaced by 'Storage Media', 'Network' and 'Trash'
(patch submitted by Patrice Tremblay).

- General Settings page: use "Home URL" instead of
"Home" as this prevents some translation issues
for French (patch submitted by Patrice Tremblay).

- Minor fixes for the disk space information
(patch submitted by Patrice Tremblay).

- Replaced "Edit Location" icon (submitted by
Patrice Tremblay).

- Refresh the icon positions when a file has been
deleted (Bug 1548249).

- New service menu 'Open as Root' for directories.

- Fixed possible wrong selection in Details View
(Bug 1547516).
