MorphOS: Trashcan released
Jacek 'jacadcaps' Piszczek, member of the MorphOS team, has released the first version of his TrashFileSystem, which provides a trashcan under Ambient.

Attention: Beta testers of MorphOS 3.10 should not install it, for "you downgrade vital components of the system to 3.9, which causes other parts to fail. Wait for the next beta iso."

  • Can trash files and directories on any writable volume
  • Collects all trashed files/dirs into a virtual Trashcan volume
  • Files in Trashcan are read-only; directories can only be restored (no read access)
  • Has two virtual disk.infos for empty/full state - the only file that can be written
  • Supports removable volumes
Ambient integration:
  • Trashcan icon on desktop - can be emptied with the context menu, supports dropping files
  • Regular listers/icon views - files can be trashed with a hotkey or context menu
  • Lister/icon view inside Trashcan - files can be restored to their original location

Instead he will focus on the Odroid models XU3/XU4 as well as the Raspberry Pi and the Orange Pi. For the U2 and U3 there will be only available AROS updates, but no ones for the Linux part.
