Krusader 1.90.0 "Power Stone" released!

The Krew is finally bringing you the _last_ release of Krusader the file manager for the KDE 3.x series. In this release you can expect many new Krusader Extensions sent in by our users and bugfixes.
We would like to thank all of the community for keeping us sharp all these years throughout our release cycles.

IMPORTANT: Crashes in Krusader caused by Qt 3.3.5
We've been getting a lot of emails and bug reports regarding random crashes in Krusader, especially during some file operations (copy/move etc.). These crashes are related to Qt 3.3.5 and NOT Krusader.
It seems that Qt 3.3.5 introduced a serious bug which is now causing random crashes in many KDE applications including Konqueror. You can google for it to find out more.

As far as we know, Debian and SUSE already posted new Qt binaries that fix the problem, and Gentoo has masked Qt 3.3.5 completely.
As for now, you either need Qt 3.3.4 or a fixed Qt 3.3.5, depending on your distribution. For more information is available on our website at

Krusader 1.90.0 contains plenty of changes, bug fixes and updates in response to reports and requests from our users.
Special thanks goes to Václav Juza for testing, debugging and general help!
