I would love to see the ability to limit access by role to certain folders when using elfinder. (want to keep them out of root /files directory)

elFinder have ability to set custom permissions to directories. This feature will be implemented in future.

In current development branch was added custom filesystem root configuration with token support (%name - current username, %uid - current user id, %files - system file path).

UPD: In D7 supported only generic tokens %name - current username, %uid - current user id, %files - files directory path. Token API support in TODO.

Where is this configuration set? I cannot seem to find any information on this. Is it on the actual elFinder library configuration?

It was odd because there was not ElFinder section under admin >> configuration on the install I am running.
