nautilus.MenuProvider.get_file_items_full
nautilus.MenuProvider.get_background_items_full
nautilus.MenuProvider.get_toolbar_items_full
nautilus.MenuProvider.emit_items_updated_signal
- Added complete gtk-doc documentation: tutorial and reference. Enable
by adding the --enable-gtk-doc argument to ./configure or ./autogen.sh
- Updated the autogen.sh file so it is not a copied-over obsolete version
of gnome-autogen.sh, but a shell that calls the user's installed
gnome-autogen.sh.
- Removed obsolete .spec file
- Removed obsolete examples/documentation.py file
- Added an example plugin for the LocationWidgetProvider
- Look for python plugins in $XDG_DATA_DIR/nautilus-python/extensions. This
includes ~/.local/share and /usr/share (or whatever $XDG_DATA_DIR is set
to)
