Thunar 0.8.0 and libexo 0.3.2 releases

I just released Thunar 0.8.0 and exo 0.3.2 as part of the long awaited Xfce 4.4.0, which will be released in a few hours. The separate tarballs are provided for users of Xfce 4.2.x refusing to upgrade to Xfce 4.4.x, and users of other desktop environments. This is the final release of Thunar, but since not all items from the roadmap were completed, it is not yet the 1.0.0 version.

You will need at least libxfce4util 4.2.2, GTK+ 2.6.4, shared-mime-info 0.15 and desktop-file-utils 0.10 to build and run Thunar. In addition Gamin or FAM are highly recommended to enable file system monitoring in Thunar. For HAL support on Linux, the libhal-storage-devel package is required (0.5.0 or above). Furthermore if you want to use the trash panel applet, you will need the Xfce Panel 4.4BETA1 or above and D-Bus 0.34 or above. The README file contains a complete list of dependencies and optional packages.

The official announcement is available at:

thunar-volman 0.1.0

I just released the first version of the Thunar Volume Manager. It adds automatic management of removable drives and media to Thunar, without adding another daemon to your desktop sessions. It requires Thunar 0.5.1svn or above, HAL 0.5.0 or above and D-BUS 0.32 or above.

Thunar 0.5.0 and libexo 0.3.1.12 rc2 releases

I just released Thunar-0.5.0rc2 and libexo-0.3.1.12rc2 as part of Xfce 4.4RC2, which will be released in a few hours. The separate tarballs are provided for users of Xfce 4.2.x that don't want to upgrade yet, and users of other desktop environments. It is planned to be the last release candidate before the final release, so please help with testing so we can locate and elimate the leftover bugs for the final release.

You will need atleast libxfce4util 4.2.2, GTK+ 2.6.4, shared-mime-info 0.15 and desktop-file-utils 0.10 to build and run Thunar. In addition Gamin or FAM are highly recommended to enable file system monitoring in Thunar. For HAL support on Linux, the libhal-storage-devel package is required (0.5.0 or above). Furthermore if you want to use the trash panel applet, you will need the Xfce Panel 4.4BETA1 or above and D-Bus 0.34 or above.

Xfld 0.3 release

Unfortunately I have the flu and so I'm somewhat late with posting old news here... Anyway, Xfld 0.3 is finally available for download. This time it's based on Xubuntu. And as usual it is the perfect LiveCD for nearly every use case. ;-)
