muCommander v0.8.6 (nightly)

muCommander is a lightweight, cross-platform file manager with a dual-pane
interface. It runs on any operating system with Java support (Mac OS X,
Windows, Linux, *BSD, Solaris...).

Documentation can be found at http://trac.mucommander.com/ .
Please visit the muCommander forums (http://www.mucommander.com/forums) to ask
questions, suggest features or report a bug. Your feedback is always welcome!

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5 or later is required to run muCommander.
Java 1.6 is recommended, you can download it at http://java.com.

Mac OS X users: your favorite OS already comes with a Java runtime so you're
good to go!

If you're having problems launching muCommander, make sure the JAVA_HOME
environment variable points to the directory where your Java runtime is

What's new since v0.8.5 ?

New features:

- Natural file ordering, suggested by 'andraaspar' in the forums. All symbols now come before digits (ticket #282).
- Improved the display of filenames when they are not entirely visible, by removing characters in the middle so that
  both ends of the filename are visible.
- Current folder is now automatically changed to a workable folder when it is no longer available (ticket #333).
- Upgraded the JmDNS library (used for Bonjour support) to version 3.1.
- Upgraded the jCIFS library (used for SMB support) to version 1.3.14.

- New: Turkish translation, contributed by Emre Aytaç
- New: Catalan translation, contributed by Jordi Plantalech
- New: Belarusian translation, contributed by vboo.
- New: Norwegian translation, contributed by Ingrid Amundsen.
- Russian translation updated. Update contributed by Alexey Sirotov.

Bug fixes:
- Pack dialog now implements the same filename selection algorithm as other dialogs (ticket #167).
- When an invalid destination was entered in a transfer dialog, the spinning dial icon would keep spinning.
- Fixed an issue that would occur when creating directories whose extension match that of one of the supported archive
  formats (see ticket #360).
- Fixed a bug that could prevent the deletion of S3 files to fail.

Known issues:
- Some translations may not be up-to-date. Refer to
  http://trac.mucommander.com/wiki/Translations for more information.
- Windows: Recycle Bin not working on Windows 64-bit with a 64-bit Java runtime
  (ticket #234). One way to work around this issue is to use a 32-bit Java runtime.
- Mac OS X: "Do you want the application "muCommander.app" to accept incoming
  network connections?" dialog keeps popping up on startup even if the dialog
  has been previously accepted (ticket #339). This dialog can be suppressed
  by disabling 'Bonjour' support in the muCommander preferences.
- Executable permissions on local files are not properly preserved
  when running a unix-based OS with Java 1.5.
- SMB support may not work properly on non multi-language JRE.
- 'Copy files to clipboard' not working with some applications (files are not
- Mac OS X: some keyboard shortcuts may conflict with global system shortcuts.
- Authentication issues when using several sets of credentials (login/password)
  for the same server (see ticket #76).
- Untrusted HTTPS connections are allowed without a warning.

The following options are available:
 -a FILE, --assoc FILE             Load associations from FILE.
 -b FILE, --bookmarks FILE         Load bookmarks from FILE.
 -c FILE, --configuration FILE     Load configuration from FILE
 -C FILE, --commandbar FILE        Load command bar from FILE.
 -e FOLDER, --extensions FOLDER    Load extensions from FOLDER.
 -f FILE, --commands FILE          Load custom commands from FILE.
 -i, --ignore-warnings             Do not fail on warnings (default).
 -k FILE, --keymap FILE            Load keymap from FILE
 -p FOLDER, --preferences FOLDER   Store configuration files in FOLDER
 -S, --silent                      Do not print verbose error messages
 -s FILE, --shell-history FILE     Load shell history from FILE
 -t FILE, --toolbar FILE           Load toolbar from FILE
 -u FILE, --credentials FILE       Load credentials from FILE
 -h, --help                        Print the help text and exit
 -v, --version                     Print the version and exit
 -V, --verbose                     Print verbose error messages (default)
 -w, --fail-on-warnings            Quits when a warning is encountered during
                                   the boot process.

In addition to these, muCommander will interpret anything that comes after the
last switch as a URI and load it in its windows.
So for example:

 mucommander -b ~/.bookmarks.xml ftp://user@myftp.com ~/dev http://slashdot.org

 - read bookmarks from ~/bookmarks.xml
 - load a connection to myftp.com in the left panel of the main window
 - load ~/dev in the right panel of the main window
 - open a second window and load http://slashdot.org in its left panel
 - load the default directory in the second window's fourth panel
