I'm pleased to announce case, a two-pane file manager for N900. It aims to provide clean and effective interface to allow you to fast and comfortably manage your files. Get it from extras-devel while its hot

Get the newest version from extras-devel.

WARNING: This is still beta version. It may and will be buggy. There is a real chance you can lose your data while using it. Please try it out, but backup your data (using something else that this filemanager). I take no responsibility for anything that happens to your files.

Right now it can move, copy or delete your files in the background (allowing you to keep using the file manager and do more operations at once), provide progress indication and overwrite/error handling.

Any suggestions, notes and bug reports are most welcome. I have some good ideas to extend the user interface and the functionality. I will write something down to the project's garage page, which you can also use for bug reports.

Usage:
I hope the interface is intuitive, the active pane is marked by a focus rectangle. Delete operates on files selected in the active pane, copy and move moves, resp. copies from active pane to the inactive one. There are also buttons to clone/switch the panes. You can also use Ctrl+H to show/hide hidden files, although it is a bit buggy (see below).

You can click the free space above error/overwrite dialogs to hide the dialog. The operation will be paused and you can fix things. Tap the bar to pause/resume an operation, long press will bring up the abort prompt.

Known Issues:
- The interface can be sluggish when an operation is in progress. Not much I can do about that, its partly caused by the I/O load and partly because linux sadly does not support setting priority for threads.

- When hidden files are shown and hidden again, some will stay visible. A bug in QT.

I want to try it, but this sentence keeps me off:

On linux file systems, files or folders starting with a period are 'hidden'. I'm guessing it's the same here. They're mostly configuration files and the like.

Yeah... What do you need them for? Get it from extras-devel repository if you can't add extras-devel to your Application Manager.

I didn't have time to even look at that part of garage, right now I'm even unable to push the changes to garage git due to some strange error.
