Since the embedded help file has been dropped, your system menu, likely in your backup will need to be adjusted. Edit/remove such entry.

The following have been added to the default /opt/.xfiletool.lst:


Items likely in your backup or persistent store that need to be updated

Attention extension makers, please test the new recursive dependency process, but hold in abeyance until recursion final is announced.

About the new toggle in appbrowser, between search and provides; I think mere toggling it shouldn't need to affect the list.

Currently the list is cleared on toggle.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Also concerning appbrowser. robc once wrote:
This is more of an annoyance then a bug, especially when loading extensions with many deps such as compiletc from appbrowser. Would it be possible for the new windows to not take the user's focus so the user can do other work while waiting?
I have decided to drop the many popup windows that appear while using appbrowser. It is, soon to be was, annoying that you could not effectively use other windows as the focus would constantly be grabbed by the popups. On some window managers and desktop environment, the many popups did not look good, e.g., window clipping. Appbrowser will now show status within the appbrowser window in the next release.
