SkyOS In the next beta of SkyOS, users can look forward to seeing a completely re-designed Viewer. The new Viewer will take advantage of the powerful features of the SkyFS (derived from Haiku's BFS), including extremely fast searching and organizing of files, on-the-fly filtering of files and folders within the Viewer, fast insertion of meta-data into multiple files, and more. Update: Screenshots!

"I wonder how long this will take to implement."

Robert was hoping we could get it all done in 1-2 weeks. He has to completely re-code the Viewer from the ground up. Depending on what else we try to squeeze in, that timeframe may waver a bit, but we're really excited about the feature, so we're going to try to get it in as quickly as possible.
