I don't know if it's still called "Spatial Mode", but what has changed
with the new Nautilus are especially two things:

1. Double clicking the window with left mouse button opens an
additional window, the first one stays open though. For the original
window to disappear, double click with the middle mouse button.
This "spatial behaviour" is still available: Window properties such as
place and size are remembered.
You might need to deactivate "Edit > Preferences > Behavior > Always
open in browser windows" ...

2. Nautilus offers a tree-based browsing within one of these spatial
windows using the arrows to the left - which I find quite cool and
useful, actually. :)


Information is always to be treasured, Raul. It is behind only love
