Re: Stock Items Deprecation

2013/9/11 Emmanuele Bassi <ebassi gmail com>:
as the author of GtkRecentAction, I'm honestly not concerned.
GtkRecentAction was a stop-gap that covered users of the old
EggRecent* API, and was never really useful; in a sense, it was a
class used to paper over a deprecation. shoving a bunch of recently
used files with only the name and a 16 px MIME type icon as a
differentiating feature in a menu (or in a toolbar menu button) always
seemed to me like a very bad UI. the file selection widget has a
better list of recently used files, these days.

The "recently used files" thing in the open dialog is utterly
confusing. It looks exactly like a directory listing, but the shown
files and directories are not actually in a single directory. The
first few times I encountered it, I thought there was some filesystem
disaster that mixed all my files together.

Maybe if the display was changed so that it did not resemble a
directory listing so much, it would be less confusing; but for now I
find this feature unusable.
