PCManFM 0.9.2 and libfm 0.1.5 alpha

I just released pcmanfm 0.9.2 + libfm 0.1.5 alpha.
The main change beside bug fixes is the ability to set default web
browser and mail client.
This is achieved via a new gio module. Now you can execute
libfm-pref-apps to see it.

By default it’s hidden from applications menu if you’re in Gnome, KDE, or XFCE.
I think it should work most of the times, except in kde programs.

As most of the planned features are already finished, other minor
things are left for the next major release.
Now it’s time to declare ‘feature freeze’ for the first release.
Any objections?

After feature freeze, no new feature is going to be added in git
master branch (new feature is only allowed in other development
Please examine the English strings in both libfm and pcmanfm to see if
there are errors in spelling or grammar.
Later if no big problems are found, we’ll enter ‘string freeze’.

I plan to release the first beta before the end of March.
So, if there are serious bugs, please report.

Thank you all.

  1. Fantastic.

    I’m very much looking forward to trying out LXDE in Lubuntu Lucid? Will these changes make it in there?

  2. I would really like to test but I don’t know how to build. Could you provide just a couple of more steps in the howto you made earlier on the ubuntuforums?


    If you can supply a list of ‘apt-get’ libs or apps that are needed and the ‘./configure’ file which seems to be missing, it will be a lot easier for a lot of people to just follow the commands and test this latest version…

  3. I’m a fan of feature freezes. Thanks for pushing this project as hard as you have been. Compiling now.
