A major update to this homepage. The website has had the same look since 2004 and we had grown a little tired of it. We hope you like our new face to the world, though most of the content are the same as before, just some updated screenshots.
As for the program itself, development goes on, 90-something changes in the changelog since the release of version 1.2.4. We do not have a timetable for the next release, but it is getting closer as the code matures and some more glitches are beeing worked out.
The GNOME Commander team is proud to announce the next stable release of GNOME Commander: 1.2.4.
This release has some new features and some bugs have been fixed.
The Gnome Commander code has now begun a migration from C to C++. Both the HEAD and 1.3 devel branch are now initially migrated and seemes to be working quite allright. Seen from a user perspective this migration is not supposed to change anything, the change is done due to coding reasons. Tests and bugreports on the GCMD SVN code are of course, as usual, much appreciated. Further info on how to download the source from SVN can be found on our Development page, but remember that this unreleased SVN code is to be considered unstable and only for testing purposes.
Gnome Commander has now found its way into the Fedora "Extras" repositry. Users of Fedora 5 and 6 has now got convienient official binary Fedora packages to install from, available for the architechtures i386, x86_64 and ppc. The authors of Gnome Commander thanks the team behind Fedora, and wish them a happy 2007.
Fastest new release so far ... This is a bug fix to the problem introduced in the yeasterday release 1.2.2. Please upgrade to this latest one where this bug 384752 - Permissions for new dirs is fixed (we hope that not too many of you had time to upgrade to 1.2.2, sorry for the inconvenience).
The GNOME Commander team is proud to announce the next stable release of GNOME Commander: 1.2.2.
This release is mostly about bugfixes and not so much about new features, though the advanced renaming tool now has got support for ID3 metags in advanced file rename templates.
Piotr has now closed bug 349631 for v1.2.1 and the work in the 1.2.2 release can continue as planned. Thanks to the feedback on this issue.
Unfortunately we have to delay the launch of the planned 1.2.2 release. There is still a very irritating bug concerning SMB networks, which we have a hard time to pinpoint, so we need some quality bugreports and feedback on this. Our bugzilla is now stormed by mostly ubuntu users reporting gcmd crash when SMB browsing. Any help will be very welcome, since we cannot reproduce this bug. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org (our developer mailing list info page) if you are experiencing this bug and want to help us with info to track this down.
The GNOME Commander team is proud to announce the stable release of GNOME Commander: 1.2.1.

On the "surface" there are not much difference from the last release 1.1.7, but underneath there are a couple of new features and some bugs have been fixed. This version-jump to 1.2.0 also marks the first stable release from the new GNOME Commander team, it is also the first release under the new version numbering where new and experimental functions first are developed and tested in an unstable odd numbered development branch of the project. The 1.2.x version will get updates, bugfixes and also successful features backported from the 1.3.x devel branch.

As we are getting closer to the release of GNOME Commander 1.2.0, we need updated translations before the release that is planned to happen around mid April.
If you'd like to contribute a translation, please read the guide on the development page to see how to do a translation. All contributors are very welcome and will get the gratitude of GNOME Commander users world wide!
The mailinglists are working.. The folks at lists.gnu.org seem to have got things working again, lets hope it will be stable now.
The mailinglists are not working..
This project now needs a new host with a working and stable setup of mailman.
The mailinglists are up and working again.
For a long time the only mails coming of the lists have been spam, but now the lists are being moderated again since the new project management gained admin access to them. All posts from non members of the lists are now being held for approval, this will stop spam effectively. Tough anyone are welcome to sign up on the lists.
Gnome Commander 1.1.7 is now released, available at the gnome.org FTP-server. This release has some bug fixes and a couple of new features, this release requires GTK+ of version 2.6.0 or above.
Read more in the release change log about bug fixes and new features.
This project has been unmaintained for quite some time, two years since last release, but it is not unmaintained anymore. Piotr Eljasiak has agreed to maintain and keep on developing this project. One more developer, Assaf Gordon has also joined the project and recently submitted some new code and patches. So, this project is alive again and the work for next release 1.1.7 has begun = more news to come...
This version improves keyboard navigation and adds some other miscellaneous polish.
This release mostly consists of numerous small bug fixes. The only new feature is that the directory indicator above each file list now can be used to navigate to parent directories.
Bugs in GNOME Commander can now be reported using Bugzilla here:
The product name to use is gnome-commander.
The cvs tree for GNOME Commander has now moved to the gnome cvs server. Se this page for information on how to work with it:
The program now handles filenames in non UTF-8 encoding much better. Lots of other smaller issues were also fixed.
Pure bug fix release.
Aight then, here is finally the first release in the unstable 1.1 serie.
New stuff to be happy about is SMB-browsing and a port to GNOME 2.
Now there is a somewhat working Gnome2 version of Gnome Commander available in the development cvs tree.
This daily cvs snapshot is just for development use and is not ready for ordinary use.
This is the "production stable" 1.0 release. Mainly small bugfixes from previous version. The source can bee dowloaded from the link above, sources in other formats and packages such as rpm's will bee added at the gcmd Savannah archive.
We're getting close to v1.0 so make sure to report all problems with the 0.9.11 release to the mailinglist. A common problem if running RedHat8 or Mandrake8.2 is instabilities in the search-dialog. See section 6 in the README for info on how to deal with that.
Not so much big news this time but some annoying bugs were fixed
If you have lots of ftp-servers stored in your ~/.gnome-commander/ftp-servers file you should make a backup of that file before upgrading, otherwise they will be lost since the format of that file has changed in this version.
Since the file is stored as text the motivated user should find it quite easy to convert to the new format in any text editor.
The 0.9.10 tarball is now available. Notice that Savannah has some bug in the file area that makes this release appear in the end of the list and not at the top. Here is a direct link.
Lots of user visible changes in this version:
There are not so many new features in this version. On the other hand there are lots of improvements all over the program so the old features are now a lot more useable than they used to be.
Some highlights from the ChangeLog:
If you downloaded the 0.9.8 release as source, you may have noticed that the directory name in the tarball was wrong. That has been fixed now, but there is no need to download again since the directory name is all that has been changed.
New things in this release are autoscroll at DND, better quicksearch, mounting and unmounting, file lists refresh without FAM, last visited directory history and more.
Many people seems to have had problems building the 0.9.7 release. If you are one of thoose you should try the new tarball at SF which solves some of the problems at least.
Since this is the swedish national day I decided that all the other folks out there should have something to celebrate too. So here is a brand new release to get excited about.
MIME support has been added and bugs have been fixed.
Added an embedded terminal and fixed some bugs.
Added FAM support, DnD and more.
A couple of more bug fixes.
Improved stability and less memory leaks. CVS disabled until it actually works well.
Improved userinterface and lots of other small hacks. If you're confused by the version numbers, it's all my fault.
This is the first public version of GNOME commander. Bugreports and feedback is wanted at marbj499 at student.liu.se
