I'm pleased to announce the release of Rodent Beta, version 4.6.2. (in past times known as xffm, although Rodent has evolved to the point of unrecognition, save for the Rodent icon theme).
Rodent Beta now sports a brand new "rodent-diff" helper application
(replacing aging xfdiff). With the new rodent-diff, practically all
the options of the GNU diff program are available in a graphic front end.
For creation of such a powerful backend to rodent-diff, we are grateful to:
* Paul Eggert
* Mike Haertel
* David Hayes
* Richard Stallman
* Len Tower
If you have trouble compiling from source, please see the Notes section located in the README file. A
binary .deb file (32 bit, compiled on Ubuntu 10.04) is available for this release.
Translations are now active for many languages.
What is Rodent?
Rodent is fast, small and powerful file manager for the GNU operating system
(but it also works in BSD). That's one way to look at it. Another way is to call it a graphic shell
(that's probably more accurate).
What Rodent is not?
Rodent is *not* a filemanager for dummies. Emphasis is on ease of use for the
advanced user, not the computer illiterate. Rodent is a cross between a command line terminal and an
iconview filemanager: the centaur of open source filemanagers.

(or just look up "rodent filemanager" at sourceforge.net).

Rodent Beta is considered stable, as intensive testing has been performed on production machines prior to release, but bug reports can be filed at http://bugs.xffm.org.
Comments and suggestions from the xfce community will be appreciated.
What is this librfm and where do I get it?
rodent: error while loading shared libraries: librfm_gridview.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Must do a "sudo ldconfig" after "sudo make install" so that your OS can find newly installed dynamic libraries (see README file).
