Release of 4Pane 0.5, a file manager for Linux

I'm pleased to announce the first file release of 4Pane, a four-pane detailed-list file manager for Linux, designed to be fully-featured without bloat. In addition to standard file manager things, it offers multiple undo and redo of most operations (including deletions), archive management including 'virtual browsing' inside archives, multiple renaming/duplication of files, a terminal emulator and user-defined tools. There is more information, including screenshots and an online manual, at

Although this is the first beta release of 4Pane, it's already fully working and stable.

Included in the release are binaries for the current versions of Debian, *buntu, Mepis, SUSE, Fedora, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS and Slackware.
Binaries for older versions, and a Gentoo and Sabayon overlay and ebuild, are available at
as are source rpms,

There is also a repository for the various debs and the PCLinuxOS rpm. See
