** Visibly the USBManager has the following improvements **

 - Better support for Red Hat based distributions (as Fedora): This new funcionality was resulted by the work on Bug #423476. As Red Hat based distributions does not use gksudo was created a routine to pre-select the proper command used to "become root". Actually this routine searches for the following functions: gksudo, gksu and beesu. If none of those are supported by you Linux distribution, please report a bug here (, inform which graphical front-end for sudo can be used and I'll provide the correction immediately.

 - New Disk usage window design: The Disk Usage window now has collored bars, used to highlight the biggest files and folders. Also, a device macro analysis wes added, providing and overview of the total number of files, average size of files, total number of folders and average size of folders.

 - EXT File System formating support: USBManager 1.0.0 supports formating for the following file systems: FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, EXT2, EXT3 e EXT4.

 - Smart umounting: The device is automatically umounted before changing the device label.

- More notifications: Some more new notifications were added in 1.0.0. Ex: Umounted device notification.

** The most important non-visual improvements are highlighted below **

- GOBjects Signals: All objects inside USBManager communicate with signals, reducing the usage of pointers nad bringing more code flexibility.
On demand analysis: The Disk Usage tool was modified to provide file/folder scanning and analysis only when a folder is selected. This modification was made to reduce the Disk Usage Tool startup time and making it more fast and user friendly.
-Community translations: USBManager started using Rosetta, launchpad's translation tool ( With this, the USBManager translations can be made trough the Web without the need to install some additional software. The translated strings are sporadicly merged into the USBManager's code.
- More translations: Further on Brazilian Portuguese translation were added more 5 languages (thanks for the lanchpad community contributions): Dutch, French, German, Russian and Spanish. Actually, there are unfinished translations for Thai (25% translated), Turkish (84% translated) and Arabic (23% translated).
