I recently updated to 13.04 and everything works smoothly but I can't seem to find a solution to show more metadata columns in Files 3.6 (Nautilus).

On 12.10 I was able to install nautilus-columns to add this functionality. That doesn't seem to work anymore. Is there anything I can do on 13.04 to show the metadata columns?

I already tried downgrading Nautilus to 3.4 but that didn't work out well. I'd really appreciate it if someone could find a way to show the columns without changing the file manager installed.
