The Thunar 1.8 release also features a completely revised pathbar, GOjbect introspection support, styling updates, and a variety of other changes.

More details on the Thunar 1.8 file manager update via the release announcement. There's nothing new to report meanwhile on when the big Xfce 4.14 release might finally materialize.
