    Congratulation… Nemo is moving so fast ! Much appreciated !

    Will we have an option for a second path bar when we split the screen ? One per folder would be nice. That could be a good help ;)

    Nice, but to me the most critical improvement needed is to bring back the “compact mode” for the icon view. Having a 200% spacing makes the icon view unusable…

    I noticed that updates for Cinnamon and Nemo are released very frequently now. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate it. Thanks for all the work, and thanks for sharing even small updates with your users!

      Thanks, but this is exceptional. We’re working hard to integrate nemo and cinnamon into Mint 14. That’s why you see all these commits and quick iterative releases. That’s also why there are so many pull requests on cinnamon not being merged.

    Big kudos to all the Cinnamon team. This is such a fine product and your commitment to improve it quickly is amazing.

    Thanks a lot to all of you.

    The new Nemo is infinitely more useful than what Nautilus has become – many thanks.

    I have a question on Cinnamon and Nemo in general though:

    Will new versions of Cinnamon and Nemo be backported to 12.04 LTS for the entire length of 12.04′s lifespan (the full five years)? I would hate to think that after two or three years while I’m still using 12.04 that I won’t get any more updates of the desktop environment and file manager.

  6. Is it possible to make Nemo the default desktop in MATE instead of Caja? I want as much of the “up-to-date” features and feel of Cinnamon in MATE, since my laptop won’t run Cinnamon usably. I’ve replaced most of the MATE tools (text editor, etc.) with the Gnome 3/Cinnamon versions, but can’t seem to get the Nemo or Nautilus desktop to integrate in. Caja won’t budge.

    Can someone please explain how can I get the latest updates?
    I have nemo 1.0.2, quite new to LM, and can’t see new builds via Synaptic nor Update Manager.

      Hi Amit,

      They’re in Romeo (aka, Mint’s “unstable” repository). You can either enable Romeo from Menu->Software Sources or you can wait for them to get in Mint 14 and then get backported to the stable Mint 13 repositories.

  8. Thanks! Could we mabey see a “tree” view option on the left?

    Nemo 1.08 crashes on my 64bit system when I attempt to select preferences – is this a known issue ?
