It's been FIVE years it has been reported that File Roller can't drag and drop files from itself to Nautilus, Nemo, Dolphin in my case, and probably other file managers. It makes File Roller extremely cumbersome (unusable imo) to use as you can only extract by manually selecting the output's path. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=776635

It is very stable overall, but there is no indication of progress (at least there wasn't with the one-large-file 7-Zip archives I've had to extract).

And the lastest stable release is the 17-Aug-2016.

Well, it supports a lot of archive types via plugins. But with current GTK3 incarnation, it become typically quite ugly outside of Gnome3 Desktop and has a minimum on options.

I understand your point. It'd be nice if there was just one toolkit used throughout all linuxes so all apps look great on each.
