Hi there,

As a present for Christmas I announce here a new version of 'lfm'.

Last File Manager is a simple but powerful file manager for the
UNIX console. It's written in Python, using curses module.
Licensed under GNU Public License version 3.

Some of the features you could find in lfm:
- console-based file manager for UNIX platforms
- 1-pane or 2-pane view
- tabs
- bookmarks
- history
- vfs for compressed files
- dialogs with entry completion
- fast access to a shell
- direct integration of find/grep, df and other tools
- color files by extension
- fast file viewer with text and binary modes
- ...and many others

Download it from:

or if it doesn't show last version (crap of ISP reverse proxy), try this
low-bandwidth home server:

Changes since last version:
Version 2.1 ("What do you want for Christimas?") - 2008/12/21:

  + Ctrl-H now show/hide dot files
  + Ctrl-Y display directories history
  + It's now posible to move the cursor in the non-active pane
    Consult the documentation for available keys and actions
    This behaviour is de/activated with Ctrl-W
  + added support for .7z compressed files
  + swapped F2 and F12 keys, now F2 rename files and F12 show file menu
  + new key shortcuts in dialogs. Read docs
  + speed up cursor movement
  + lots of code cleaning and refactoring
  + and fixed lot of bugs, some of them:
    - change Iñigo for Inigo to avoid problems when installing
    - sorting by None doesn't crash anymore
    - MenuWin dialog crashed when title length was greater than length of
      entries to show

Of course, all comments, suggestions, etc. are welcome.

Best regards,
Iñigo Serna
