Nautilus resurfaces from Eazel wreckage

File mangler breathes again

It's a terrible thought, but Eazel's demise may prove to be the best thing ever to happen to Nautilus, the software libre file manager.

Eazel went titsup.tar.gz in March, having burned through $13 million trying to make a business of selling services around Nautilus.

But the GPL software lives on. A new release 1.04 issued yesterday includes both real and cosmetic fixes, and doesn't keep trying to force the now-defunct Eazel services down the user's throats. So it's leaner for that.

A quick list of fixes can be found here at LinuxToday, or at the Nautilus home page at FreshMeat.

It's Friday, and we feel an apt-get coming along... ®
