I just released Xfilemanager V0.2.0.

Xfilemanager is a X11 based Unix filemanager that looks similar to the
Mircosoft filemanager and obtains Drag&Drop abilities.

- Drag&Drop
- Singlewindow ("Microsoft"-mode) or Multiwindow display
- a few desktop operations
- supports XPM-Icons or X11 bitmaps.
- customizable filetypedetection and usersworkspace (desktop)

Changes: Version 0.1.0 to Version 0.1.1
- X11bitmap support
- runs now on SunOS 4.1.3 (thanks to Jeff Jennings)
- should work with Ultrix 4.3-machines (thanks to Andre Beck)

Changes: Version 0.1.1 to Version 0.1.2
- some small bugs while moving file by draging them in directorywindows have
  been fixed.

Changes: Version 0.1.2 to Version 0.1.3
- The Clock-Widgetbug on Suns has been fixed
- The workspacesize will be saved and restored.
- The workspaceresizinghandler has been improved.

Changed: Version 0.1.3 to Version 0.2.0
- Targetdetection for draging files has been improved.
- Bugsfixes of some serious problems, especailly the workspaceeditor.
- system(3) call has been exchanged to be usable on Linux-Machines too.
- User-quotas for Ultrix. (Mail me the Imake-define and the quota-call for
  your system and I will implement it for your machine)
- The{*filter*}manual is nearly finished (has been a port of some 0.1.3 version - not all)

Machines supported:
HpUx, SunOs, Ultrix, Linux

Needs an ANSI-C compatible compiler (I tried acc and gcc)

I think there will be many other bugs, but I haven't found them yet
(except the menu-bug under X114, but I don't know the reason yet)

--------- (there are some other programs to. You are free to
                              use them too).

I will implement a mount-interface and a diskfreeinterface for root-users soon.
There are also these two function in the pulldown-menu which still need to be filled
with some life.
And there is also the beginning of a multiselection-mode. (Only same-filetype-executions
are prossible now - use the middlest mousebutton)
Perhaps the program will be divided into two part (the filemanager and a desktopmanager),
but this will take a while.

Comments, ideas and bugfixes are welcome. Flames will be ignored.
I hope you will enjoy it, if not, your problem.

My thanks to all gentle people who reported bugs. (They are to many to list them all here)

Bye, Ove.

Product:  Request or statement (see above)
Warranty: Normaly less than half'n hour, but sometimes longer
Reason:   My opinion changes very quick cause it depends on creative
          processes of thinking and not on doctrins like common
          politicians do.

Below this line I could write a sentence of A.Lincoln, but he's
allready fallen to dust and it would be unfair cause he wouldn't be
able to correct his words.
