Hello everybody,

I just released Thunar 0.8.0 and exo 0.3.2 as part of the long awaited
Xfce 4.4.0, which will be released in a few hours. The separate tarballs
are provided for users of Xfce 4.2.x refusing to upgrade to Xfce 4.4.x,
and users of other desktop environments. This is the final release of
Thunar, but since not all items from the roadmap were completed, it is
not yet the 1.0.0 version.

You will need at least libxfce4util 4.2.2, GTK+ 2.6.4, shared-mime-info
0.15 and desktop-file-utils 0.10 to build and run Thunar. In addition
Gamin or FAM are highly recommended to enable file system monitoring in
Thunar. For HAL support on Linux, the libhal-storage-devel package is
required (0.5.0 or above). Furthermore if you want to use the trash
panel applet, you will need the Xfce Panel 4.4BETA1 or above and D-Bus
0.34 or above. The README file contains a complete list of dependencies
and optional packages.
