Here's the latest revision which will probably be version 2.2.
Thanks to Johan Spee who told me that GPRename 2.1 cannot handle
accents which has been fixed and he also made a Dutch translation.
I also added some code that modify the cursor to a watch while
GPRename is renaming, listing files or previewing to tell the user
that GPRename is not dead, he's just processing stuff. Of course
for a few files no one will see the cursor change as it is too fast,
but for a few thousands files you'll see it. But the cursor doesn't
change if you open up a directory in the tree, I have problem with
this function and here on my computer, opening up /usr takes about 10
seconds but while the cursor doesn't change at least I can clearly
hear my hard disk spinning reading all these files which is telling me
that GPRename is not dead :>
By doing this I came across a bug with files starting with a dash (-).
If you ever worked in console you'll know that these files are quite
problematic, 'touch -a' doesn't work, you need 'touch -- -a' and
same thing to remove them, it will be 'rm -f -- -a'. But that has
been fixed, GPRename can display and rename them now.
So that's it for version 2.2, I'll release it around this week-end.

I have been using r121 and r123 and have not
encountered any problems. I am glad the accent
character and leading '-' bugs were found, because I
am sure I would not have known how to handle those had
I encountered them.
The ability to rename leading-hyphen filenames is
probably more an accomplishment than I am able to
I encourage you to contact Gnome (and KDE, given how
disgustingly awful KRename is) about incorporating
GPRename into their environment. If I can help with
the wording of any such proposal, please let me know.
GPRename has come further under your guidance than it
ever did under the guidance of the original author. It
is now a functionally complete tool in my opinion,
with a simple and intuitive interface easily
understood by anyone who opens it for the first time.
KRename cannot claim that ease of use.
Thank you for turning a rusty old pipe wrench into a
polished precision tool that I use almost every day
TV dinner still cooling?
