Catfish 0.6.1 Released

It’s been out for a while now and seems to work well for everyone who’s tested it. Catfish 0.6.1 has been released and is the greatest and fastest version yet.

What’s New in the Catfish 0.6 Series?

Considering I never “officially” announced the 0.6.0 release, there’s quite a bit to go on.  Here are some updates from the Changelog.

  • Rewritten from the ground up, with an emphasis on speed and maintainability.
  • Replaced the ‘find’ system command with Python’s own os.walk.
  • The interface has been revamped, improving the 0.4 series and bringing a styled sidebar and symbolic icons.
  • Thumbnail support has been improved.
  • Filenames can be dragged and dropped from the Catfish application.
  • Files can now be deleted directly from the application interface.
  • Operations can now be performed on multiple files simultaneously (including the two new features mentioned above).
  • Improved wildcard support.
  • Simplified strings for easier translation.
  • And finally, Python versions 2 or 3 can be used.

Screenshots are boring and don’t show the power and speed of Catfish 0.6.1. So here’s the latest version in a great demo video.
