[Dec 8, 2005]  Beesoft Commander

Beesoft Commander is a file manager (like Norton Commander) for Linux. It is based on Qt-GUI.

Release focus: Major feature enhancements

Changes:
A so-called "Finder" interface was implemented. In this interface, alphanumeric keys are not function keys; rather, the default reaction for any alphanumeric key is to start a search for files in the current panel whose names contain the typed characters. This "finder" mode is ended with Esc or Return. Esc returns the current position in the panel the position before searching, while pressing Return opens the found file with the default action.

[Oct 16, 2005] Letter to the Editor:

Norton Commander 1.0

Hi,

I'm still using Norton Commander version 1.00 (1986) in Windows 98SE,
even in Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP.

I prefer it's small size and fast, and I can write with it small batch programs.

    freshmeat.net Project details for Jfilerunner

    Jfilerunner is a file manager for Unix systems. It features file associations in which a user can define actions to take when double-clicking a particular type of file, a running history of directories navigated, with simple history navigation, the ability to bookmark favorite directories, the ability to download a file from the Web via HTTP. There are multi- threaded file and GUI operations, and the ability to change the Look And Feel dynamically.

    Release focus: Minor feature enhancements

    Changes:
    An additional version is available that uses the NiceSTEP classes for a NeXTSTEP/GNUstep look and feel. The ability to view and extract the contents of Java jar files was added. The View button will view the contents of archive files (jar, tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, tar.Z, zip) instead of viewing them as text files. The external unzip program is no longer needed for viewing or extracting zip files. Improvements were made in panel updating, file selection, and fonts.

    [Jun 9, 2005] Linux Today - Community Krusader on the Move

    Although Krusader still needs a lot of work to match TC the progress is evident with the release of version 1.6. "Popular URLs idea is definitely a good one...

    With this release of Krusader, the need for a Linux TC port has become obsolete! The Krusader Krew showed once more that they can satisfy user requests, feedback, and "fine tuning"; and make significant product innovations simultaneously!

    Perhaps the most major enhancement of the Krusader is the "User Actions" system, which was incrementally introduced in the past few releases. User Actions are user specified scripts for common tasks or file operations. These scripts are already readily available via the Right-Click Menu, but with new version can also now be added to the Special Actions Toolbar that resides below the Menu, or even as common User Menu entries.

    The Special Actions Toolbar can also utilize Bookmarks! This combination of functionality, easily at hand, makes Krusader 1.6 the most User Friendly file manager available for Linux! The biggest advantage of the User Action scripts is that they can be easily added or modified, and you do not have to be a programmer to work with them! But if you happen to be a programmer, the "User Actions" dialog allows for quick and easy import, export, or advanced editing of scripts and batch files. In depth information about using and writing your own User Actions can be found in Krusader Handbook.

    ... ... ...

    "Popular URLs" is functionally similar to "Bookmarks", but contains a weighting system to rank the URLs actually visited, whether you have assigned the URL a Bookmark or not! In "Popular URLs", the URLs are not stored in a "bookmark view" but have ranked entries based on visitation frequency drawn from the History file. The "Popular URLs" feature is particularly helpful for online research, programming projects, and for those who use the Internet in their daily work. You can "pick up where you left off" without having to bookmark dozens of pages that you may not visit regularly after the current project is completed. The "Popular URLs" list is, by design, dynamic, and self-updating! This type of listing has many advantages over "regular" bookmarks for speed and reviewing, and enables the overall Bookmark System to manage local and remote, and temporary and permanent, web destinations in a more organized, granular, efficient manner.

    ... ... ...

    Virtual Filesystems are basically a container for URL's from different file systems used in the "feed to listbox" feature of the search module. Actions that are performed on the "Virtual Filesystem" files are performed on the real files, wherever they reside. This means that deleting files from the "Virtual FS" also deletes them from your hard drive, NFS drive, etc.! The "Virtual Filesystem" is only virtual in that it makes files from different locations and media appear to be in one "virtual" location, with Krusader mediating the details of how to "get to" each specific file to carry out the desired file operations ordered by the User.

    On the other hand, Virtual Folders *do not* work with the actual files, but rather with virtual files and only the last action manipulates the files. Check the Krusader Handbook for more details on the distinctions between these two "virtual" file management features.

    The most fascinating implementation, in terms of usage, that comes with the new release is "Disk Usage", based on the Filelight. The Disk Usage feature shows you how your disk space is being used, using a graphical representation of your file system. There are several viewing options: The "Overview" is possible in simple line view where occupied space is color-coded and ranked, the "Detailed View" contains additional information about files and folders, and finally "Filelight View", which shows a set of concentric segmented-rings representing your entire filesystem.

    The biggest advantage of "Disk Usage" is the ability to set the starting point of the display tree. Any user on the system can easily check how much space his files occupy while Administrators (root) can easily check how much space individual users are using on the system. The "Ringed View" is also useful for a quick overview of the server directory structure. Disk Usage can be executed as a stand-alone function, or from inside the 3rd panel of Krusader.

    [June 8, 2005] MC_4_6_1_pre4 was released by Pavel Shirshov.

    I've created a new cvs tag MC_4_6_1_pre4 and deleted MC_4_6_1_PRE5A
    since it had a wrong version number. I've created a new tarball based
    on MC_4_6_1_pre4 - it can be found here: http://pavelsh.pp.ru/mc/

    [Apr 8, 2005] Commander by Michael Vinther      

    File management utility and image viewer. The program has an effective split screen interface with two directory views or a directory view and a file viewer.
    The image viewer can launch MeeSoft Image Analyzer for editing images.

    [Apr 4, 2005] Lexan Software Inc. Palm Commander 

    Actually modern Palms with 200 Mhz CPU and 32M of memory are much more powerful computers that XT with 1M of memory and now some of them accept flashcards (Tangstren E, etc)  that can be up to 1G. So it might make sense to use them with a commander if you have a separate keyboard.

    [Mar 25, 2005] Community: Krusader File Manager for Almost-Geeks

    Most graphical operating systems use single-window file management as their default. The reason might lie in the idea that most of their users prefer using a mouse over a keyboard.

    On the other hand, real geeks use the command line, since that way they won't have to bury themselves in thousands of opened windows. Programmers found out ages ago that there can be a middle path for the file management. Thus, the two-panel paradigm was born and it has its own philosophy: orthodox file management or OFM.

    While Norton Commander ruled the past and Total Commander may rule the Windows world, there is still no real winner on Mac and *nix systems. I will not go into the Mac since I'm not an OS X user, but for *nix users, there might be a good explanation for this lack of OFM applications.

    Not long ago, all *nix users were all geeks--only in recent days have ordinary users started looking at open alternatives. Among these ordinary users there are a lot of so-called power-users that can do sharp things, but still need a GUI to feel comfortable. Windows already had this special group of users, while Linux is still battling for them.

    The open source community serves a lot of commander-type applications, but none of them yet prevailed. The reason might be because of dispersed programming where, everyone rather starts his own project in his spare time, then joins a software group with a decently evolved program.

    One such group that was established for such a purpose and which will probably prevail on KDE, is the Krusader Krew. Their manager project, called Krusader, is an advanced two-panel commander-style file manager for KDE with two panels, command line, predefined function buttons and extensive keyboard shortcuts, terminal emulator, and robust icons on the toolbar.

    Krusader has the standard look and feel of all OFMs on every OS. What makes it special in the Linux world is not these standard features, but many extras. Krusader supported tabbed panels even before its Windows rival did, as well as extensive archive handling, user mounting, SMB and FTP protocols, advanced search, directory synchronization, file content comparisons, powerful batch renaming, and on-key root mode. It is (almost) completely customizable, fast and looks great on your desktop, as the authors put it.

    Krusader is getting complete, but its authors have even more tricks up their sleeves.

    In mid July, Krusader 1.40 introduced:

    Three months later in 1.50, which is still hot:

    An in-depth look at Krusader shows some interesting solution possibilities. The GUI is quite colorful and most of the icons combine mouse or keyboard features. Krusader has right-clickable context menus that allow you to do fast operations with the mouse, too. The most important context features can be used to discover the available commands. The most useful ones compare directories and file contents. In combination with synchronization, this makes Krusader a powerful tool.

    The developers have also made it easy to send a file as an attachment through email.

    Krusader has an implementation of internal viewer called KrViewer, which can handle different file formats and actually uses Konqueror code. This means that it can view every file type viewable by Konqueror. When the file type cannot be determined or when a file is not associated to any action, it disables the 'generic viewer' and the file is treated as a text file. Viewing dovetails well with editing. Krusader's internal editor has almost everything what you can expect of an editor.

    Krusader is deeply integrated with KDE. This might be the only real drawback for users that use GNOME, XFce, or other desktop environments, but in the apt-get world even that is not a problem, since all dependencies get resolved instantly.

    This short review cannot completely show the whole usefulness of this application. If you want more information, you can join the Krusader forum or browse their extensive documentation site.

    [Mar 23, 2005] Krusader - Twin Panel File Management For Your Desktop  is a strong GUI-based competitor to MC.

    Perfect for SUSE as it is based on KDE. Unfortunately the authors sometimes forget, that any function should be invocable by keyboard, but still it is the GOFM for Linux. Functionality reminds Total Commander and its relation to MC reminds competition between FAR and Total Commander in Windows space.  Right now due to crisis in development of mc, Krusader deserves a second look:

    .. is an advanced twin panel (commander style) file manager for KDE 3, similar to Midnight or Total Commander (formerly Windows Commander), with many extras. It provides all the file-management features you could possibly want.

    Plus: extensive archive handling, mounted filesystem support, FTP, advanced search module, viewer/editor, directory synchronisation, file content comparisons, powerful batch renaming and much much more.

    It supports the following archive formats: tar, zip, bzip2, gzip, rar, ace, arj and rpm and can handle other KIOSlaves such as smb or fish. It is (almost) completely customizable, very user friendly, fast and looks great on your desktop! :-)

    You should give it a try.

    [Mar 22, 2005] MC in trouble again. 

    Although the story  with "Linux microsoftizer-in-chef" Miguel de Icaza almost killing mc by trying to convert it into a File Explorer clone had a happy end, mc troubles are far from over.  In 2002 Pavel Roskin became the maintainer and rip off the Gnome related junk releasing in early 2003 more or less stable version 4.6.0. But the good things did not last long. It looks like mc development stagnated again due to Pavel being preoccupied with other things. There was no new "stable" version posted on the official website for more then two years. As of today it still lists:
