Due to some limitations and various hard-to-fix problems in the
original pcmanfm, a new project is started.
Now I've created a project named libfm. It's a gio-based library used
to develop file manager-like programs.
This will be the core of next generation PCManFM.
Currently the work that has been done is in branches.
It contains a simple demo program called libfm-demo.
The project is in its very early stage, but you can see the progress here.
After finished, the lib will be separated into two parts, libfm and libfm-gtk.
The former is a generic non-gui library, and the later provides useful
file manager-related widgets.
If someone is willing to help, that'll be appreciated.

Good news! I will check it out!
BTW: have you considered switching to git? SF provides git
repositories. Branching/merging is real pain in SVN (Even with merge
tracking -> which just reflects SVNs defective design under the hood).
I don't see merges in LXDEs history (just svn copy back in the
Git could really simplify/speed-up development (especially at this
early stage of development) not only technically but also
