Rename file?

I'm new to FastRawViewer and very happy i've found it. It's a perfect replacement for the abandoned FastPictureViewer.
There is one thing i can't seem to find out: How can i rename an image file i have open in the viewer? I'm sorting a huge amount of screenshots from websites on different topics, and sometimes i need to rename a file while sorting, before i move it to a folder for archiving. In FPV i pressed F2 and renamed the file.
How is it done in FRV?

Current FastRawViewer does not provide file rename function

That's unfortunate. Would you consider to add it to the program? It's the only feature i'm missing, and it's a bit of shocker that a program with such powerful managing capabilites doesn't include a simple rename function.
The issue is evident when you look at this workflow:
I have a folder of 2000 images, i open an image with FRV and start working/browsing, and after 200-300 images i decide that an image needs to be renamed. I need to write down the image name (i.e. 2020-08-01 00 18 08.png), then go to explorer, find the image, rename it and then go back to FRV and continue. Repeat this 50 or 100 times, and it's quite the overhead in the end, timewise and clickwise.

Yes, renaming is already on top in our TODO list for next major update.

Nice. That makes it an easy buy for me then. :)
Thank you!
