I have also been searching for an opensource file manager and came across Saladin. The only other one that look very good is Explorer++
First of all, thank you very much for writing such an excellent application under an open-source license.
Open source is really a very important movement, - NOT because software is free and we don't have to pay for it. That's not the point. Its about freedom of knowledge, building communities that are not based only on a money-profit motive. I'll be happy to make a contribution as soon as this phd is done :)
The thing that surprises me the most however is why there are not more people excited about this great project?
When I went to install Saladin, the installer said it was Alpha software. I'm really rather hesitant to install anything that might destablize my system or lose files. I'm constantly moving research data from backup drives to my main system and could not bear to lose anything at all.
How stable is Saladin? And when might a Beta or full release become available?
