I'm pleased to announce the XYZCommander version 0.0.2!

XYZCommander is a pure console visual file manager.
Main features:

    * Tight integration with python run–time system — most of the
settings can be changed "on the fly" via management console.
    * Powerful configuration system - define own actions, aliases,
internal commands, key bindings.
    * Extensible plug-in system - even core functionality implemented
mainly using plug–ins, keeping base system small and clean.
    * Events & hooks subsystem - a flexible way of reacting on certain
system events.
    * Customizable look-n-feel - every widget component look can be
changed via skins.
    * Unicode support

XYZCommander runs on *nix platform and requires python version >= 2.5
and urwid library.
