 Log Message:
 Update to 0.88, provided by David Howland in PR 34021:
 Version 0.88 (released 02-07-2006)
 - now the global Desktop file is copied to the local registry ~/.foxrc/XFileExplorer/XFe at the first launch of Xfe
  (or if the file doesn't exist). This allows the user to easily edit the Xfe file to suit its needs.
 - improved the performances on Linux systems when computing the dirsize (not recursive) of the root ('/')
   directory by avoiding to scan the mount points (could be time consuming on a slow network)
 - for archive operations use the directory name as a starting guess for the archive file name
 - removed a lot of global variables (global options)
 - added two new color options (foreground / background) for the file and dir lists in the Preferences/Colors dialog.
   The foreground (font) color and the bacground color of the file and dir panels can now be set independantly of
   the global interface
 Version 0.87 (not released)
 - temporarily disabled the print menus in XFileView and XFileImage because they were not implemented at all!
 - when dragging files from a read-only directory, converted the move action to copy (useful when dragging files
  from a cdrom for example, thanks to pechkov for the tip)
 - major update of the Desktop file (now only uses lower case file extensions)
 - added more file associations and icons (OpenOffice, StarOffice, etc.) Thanks to Vidar Jon Bauge <>!
 - added a specific icon for broken links and fixed a small bug relative to the status bar in FilePanel
 - added russian translation (thanks to Dmitij Lebed <>
 - added danish translation (thanks to Vidar Jon Bauge <>)
 - fixed a problem when creating a file or a folder with Xfe : umask was not respected. Thanks to marvin6161
   <> for providing a patch
 - fixed a segfault when right clicking in the DirPanel on a mount point with permission 700
   Thanks to marvin6161 <> for providing a patch
 - fixed a segfault that sometimes occured when dragging a file to the directory list
 - fixed a problem with supplementary groups not taken into account (thanks to Armin Buehler
   <> for providing a patch)
 - updated to gettext 0.14.5
 - fixed some problems with executable file names like zip, cc, etc. Now, they should be handled correctly
 - now there is no more difference between upper case and lower case file extension
 - set the big icons and mini icons views in ICONLIST_AUTOSIZE mode to avoid file names truncation
 - updated Italian translation (thanks to Claudio Fontana <>)
 Version 0.86
 - added norvegian translation (thanks to Vidar Jon Bauge <>)
 - added a waitpid call in statout(), lstatout() and mt_lstat() to avoid zombies processes
 - the directory size is now periodically refreshed instead of updated every FOX event. This allows Xfe
   to be more responsive.
 - renamed function dirpath() into pathsize() in
 - added the possibility to cycle through the three panels when the right panel is shown
 - restored the "one panel" and "tree and two panels modes" since some people find it useful
 Version 0.85 (not released)
 - fixed a problem when archiving directories with escape characters in their name
   (thanks to for discovering and patching this bug)
 - fixed a bug in checkTimeout() and removed the test on now.tv_sec
 - added .wri and .dpatch extensions to
 - fix compilation on amd64 platforms with gcc-4.0 (patch from Andreas Jochens)
 - added the "New window" menu item to allow starting a new Xfe session from the actual window
 - set the KDE and GNOME themes more actual and renamed them to GNOME2 and KDE3
 - replaced the mini file manager icon with a better one (thanks to antonix  <>)
 - replaced the zip file icons with better ones (thanks to antonix  <>)
 - fixed problems with the German translation (broken shortcuts)
