Changes in Tilix 1.5.8 include:
- window state is now saved and restored between sessions (e.g. if a window is maximized when closed, it will be maximized when you launch Tilix again);
- sessions can be detached using drag and drop. They can also be re-attached to another Tilix window;
- sessions can now be reordered using drag and drop or by using Ctrl + Pg Up / Ctrl + Pg Dn;
- if Ctrl + C is assigned to copy shortcut, tilix is smart enough to only copy when text is selected otherwise normal interrupt is passed;
- added new variable for titles at session scope for active terminal title;
- added support for GTK active CSS style. This sould enable better styling of terminal titlebars;
- added support for VTE hyperlink functionality;
- bug fixes.

|Polo file properties – audio info|
Other Polo features worth mentioning:
- multiple views: list, icons, tiles and media;
- easily open folders as root (with pkexec support);
- extended details when replacing existing files;
- statusbar that displays the number of files, folders (including hidden), along with available disk space and a disk space indicator, and the filesystem type;
- bookmarks support (web browser-like: a star is displayed at the right of the pathbar);
- media view: when Polo detects you’re browsing a folder containing photos or videos, it switches to a 256×256 size icon view to make it easier to browse through items;
- media info in the file properties dialog, which displays EXIF tags (such as exposure, iso, camera model and much more) and audio info (artist, album, track name, along with audio format, bit rate, etc.), PDF metadata, etc.
- tabs can be renamed;
- keyboard shortcuts;
- toolbar button and context menu to open current folder in a terminal.
Work in progress
While in my test, I only encountered two major bugs (very slow copying folders with a large number of files and the app crashes when entering a folder with a large number of images), there are a few major features that are missing, like support for drag’n’drop and trash, along with many missing bits and pieces (like type-ahead). And, of course, there are some bugs as well. But that’s to be expected since Polo is beta software.
The next beta version is expected to be released on April 8.

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will go back to using GNOME as the default desktop environment, instead of Unity.
“I took the view that, if convergence was the future and we could deliver it as free software, that would be widely appreciated both in the free software community and in the technology industry, where there is substantial frustration with the existing, closed, alternatives available to manufacturers. I was wrong on both counts.
In the community, our efforts were seen fragmentation not innovation. And industry has not rallied to the possibility, instead taking a ‘better the devil you know’ approach to those form factors, or investing in home-grown platforms. What the Unity8 team has delivered so far is beautiful, usable and solid, but I respect that markets, and community, ultimately decide which products grow and which disappear”.– Mark Shuttleworth
