Hello everybody,

I just released Thunar-0.5.0rc2 and libexo- as part of
Xfce 4.4RC2, which will be released in a few hours. The separate
tarballs are provided for users of Xfce 4.2.x that don't want to upgrade
yet, and users of other desktop environments. It is planned to be the
last release candidate before the final release, so please help with
testing so we can locate and elimate the leftover bugs for the final

You will need atleast 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.
