Hey Giuseppe,

I'm sorry if my reply gave the wrong impression, I did not mean to be
rude. I can see that my wording may look somewhat snappy.

I did update my svn checkout shortly after the release, because, as I
mentioned, it didn't work at all for me. It does work for me now, that
is extracting archives and dragging files on Thunar windows, both of
which didn't work before. And I do appreciate your efforts on making
XArchiver more stable.
Please understand, my advice was motivated by the fact that the last
versions were unusable for me and if you focus on bug fixes I am
usually more motivated to test if problems are resolved.
