In seriousness, april fools is over, reverted to the old GUI.  Soon
there will be a run-time switch to change the mode on the fly, though.

Hey there, ranger users.

I think the time has come to admit that while ranger's the Miller
approach to file browsing may have been an interesting experiment, the
one and only, the true way to browse your files is demonstrated by
Midnight Commander. The dual pane view.

So we have decided to ditch the old GUI and develop a multiple pane
for ranger!

Just upgrade the ranger-git package and you will experience the rush
intensity that, uhm, the rest of the world has since 1986 already!

How to navigate the panes:

1. Create a new tab with Ctrl+n to create a new pane. (Yes, tabs are
    the same as panes!)
2. Tab between them with <TAB>
