Name        : ranger
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 1.6.1
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/ranger/
Summary     : A flexible console file manager
Description :
Ranger is a free console file manager that gives you greater flexibility and a
good overview of your files without having to leave your *nix console. It
visualizes the directory tree in two dimensions: the directory hierarchy on
one, lists of files on the other, with a preview to the right so you know where
you'll be going.

Update Information:

*** New `rifle` command ***

  * Added a separate file launcher named "rifle" that is configured through
    rifle.conf and is installed as a standalone program.
  * Using "ranger [filename]" from the shell for opening files is deprecated now,
    please use "rifle [filename]" instead.
  * Replaced "apps.py" file with rifle.conf

*** Breaking changes ***

  * Overhauled all config files.  Please update them or use the --clean switch
  * Removed settings: colorscheme_overlay, draw_bookmark_borders, init_function,
  * Removed "keys.py" configuration file in favor of "rc.conf"
  * Removed "texas" colorscheme


  * See /usr/share/ranger/examples/ for sample programs and plugins that can
    be used together with ranger
  * Added new configuration file "rc.conf" which contains a list
    of commands that are executed on startup - mainly used for keybindings
  * Changed appearance of keybinding-hints and bookmarks
  * Changed the default column_ratios to 1/3/4 and sorting method to "natural"
  * Changed :rename so it doesn't overwrite existing files
  * Forbid piping things into ranger
  * Replaced integrated help with an extended man page and dynamic lists
    of keybindings, commands and settings.
  * Now previewing with "i" uses the whole available width.
  * Replaced "options.py" file by :set commands in rc.conf
  * Improved "r" key to interface with rifle
  * Changed key to untag files from "T" to "ut"
  * Changed the flag "d" (for detached) to "f" (for fork) in program launcher
