Just a note on usability:
Though even the Table Manager was not the obvious tool to manipulate attribute tables, cause it wasn't even installed by default, now the Refactor Fields function in Processing is even less visible to people.


It would be great if this function could be kind of hard-wired to the attribute table with a button (like the field calculator, formatting etc.). I think especially ArcMap-users (but not only) will struggle to find that function.

Cheers

Hi folks!

I'm going to discontinue the Table Manager. It was always a dirty workaround, and nowadays (with recent QGIS versions and GDAL 2) numerous data corruptions are reported. As QGIS finally contains the Refactor Fields tool and doesn't
need any external plugins, I believe it's the high time to kill the Table
Manager. I'm going to release the final version that displays a farewell
message pointing users to the Refactor Fields (and still works, beside that message). Of course if someone is willing to take the development and keep it
up to date with the changing GDAL‚ I can abstain :)

Table Manager was translated into French, Russian and Ukrainian, so I'd like to ask the translators for help with that message. However... I can't remember who was the original translator. A massive shame on me, as it seems I didn't
put any credentials anywhere! I don't know how could I overlook it :(( I
apologize and promise to fix it as soon as we find the right persons.

I believe it was Maxim for Russian and Alex for Ukrainian, were you? But who made the French translation? Régis, maybe it was you or do you have any ideas?

Best regards

Borys
