    -- Me

I use ranger all the time, but there were a couple of features
missing that would have made it even more useful to me.  They are no
longer missing!

I've wanted to be able to compare modification times more easily.
With the ":linemode" feature, I was able to write a new linemode
(without having to know too much about what I was doing), "mtime",
that shows file names on the left and their modification times on
the right.

I've wanted a way to browse files in different directories as easily
as ranger allows me to browse files in a single directory.  ":flat",
together with ":filter", lets me do that!

Thank you for these new features.
