gentoo is a modern, powerful, flexible, and utterly configurable file manager for UNIX systems, written using the GTK+ toolkit. gentoo aims to be 100% graphically configurable; there's no need to edit config files by hand and then restart the application. gentoo is somewhat inspired in its look & feel by the classic Amiga program DirectoryOpus 4 (by GP Software), but is not a "clone". gentoo has been successfully tested on a variety of platforms, including Linux (x86, Alpha, and PS2/MIPS), Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD.
Here are some key features of "gentoo":
· Written from scratch, in straight ANSI C and utilizing the GTK+ toolkit.
· Aims to be 100% graphically configurable, and comes pretty close, too.
· Powerful file recognition system allows you to configure how files of different types are shown (with colors and icons), and what happens when you doubleclick them (spawn image viewers, music players, etc).
· Includes more than 120 original pixmaps icons (16x15 pixels).
· Internal support for most file operations (copy, move, rename, makedir etc).
· Licensed under the GNU General Public License, and thus Open Source software.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· This release improves UI flexibility so that gentoo now runs better if you configure it to not have any command buttons.
· It fixes a bug that prevented the Information window from successfully closing.
· It rewrites the core of the Move command to not compute the size before trying a rename, saving huge amounts of time for deep/complex directory moves on the same device.
