Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 12 October 2015 at 02:51 PM EDT. 28 Comments
A Google Summer of Code student who worked on GTK+ and Nautilus has managed to overhaul the search feature of GNOME's file manager.

The new search feature built into Files/Nautilus is designed to be much more intuitive with new filters and more. The new code hasn't yet been merged and still needs to be reviewed, but looks promising so far.

More details on the new search UI for Nautilus can be found via this blog post by Georges Stavracas.
