Hi. Though the new beta1 of Thunar is great, I wish it had adjustable icon spacing when viewing folders in the icon view. There aren't that many options to configure Thunar at present, but I hope that this one can make it into version 1.0.
Thunar is none too intelligent right now about wrapping filename text or deciding how many icons to show per row; resizing the window to allow for more horizontal space does not always add new icons to that row, so being able to adjust the spacing between the icons themselves would be very handy for the power user to see loads 'o icons on the screen at once.
Thanks for the hard work so far!
I will add these options as GTK style properties, so you can override them in your theme or ~/.gtkrc-2.0.
