Re: [Tracker] T-S-T UI Review of .7.x versus .6.x

TST will have all those features by 0.8 release (I hope) - not sure
about option 4 though

the list/icon views are likely to be category specific as follows:

i plan for say music/image category to show a grid with sortable columns
for artist, track name, duration etc

Whilst for documents we will show a list view with snippets

For all others we will just show an icon view as snippets or grids are
not appropriate for them

Having recently switched over to the .7.x version of Tracker I had
some observations and a question about the functionality of the T-S-T
in .7.x.  My primary question is if there are plans or schedule to add
functionality to the T-S-T in the near future.  There are some very
useful features from the .6.x branch that have not been implemented.
Thank you for any responses.  Tracker is a great product!

My observations of .6.x features not implemented in .7.x

1.  No indication of number of files found in total and by category.
2.  No support for list mode in results.
3.  The "snippets" are gone which gave context to the results.  This
was very useful, although in .6.x it was somewhat broken if you did OR
searches (It would give you a snippet for every OR term even if it
wasn't found in the file)
4.  Inability to select more than 1 result and a missing right click
menu with actions to perform.  .6.x had a right click menu that had
open, open folder, move to trash, and save results as.
5.  No page keys on the GUI for paging through results.

The search as you type and globbing support in .7.x which was not
in .6.x are great new features.
