Now you can have desktop icons that point to devices that the
user has permission to mount. For example, floppies and CD-ROMS

eject/mount/umount the devices with a single click!

Bug fixes, assorted enhancements:
Auto-restart on crash when running under GNOME session.
An option to quit the file manager. 2 query dialog boxes are
there, so you wont quit it by mistake.
Symlinks to executables now behave propery from the
property-dialog box point of view.
Drag and drop bugs fixed. I dragged pretty much everywere on my
system. It is a miracle I figured how to move things back to their
original location. Morale: dont leave me close to a gmc console in
your root account.
URLs pasted to the entries actually work.
Support for non-GNOME compliant window managers work (ie, the
desktop menu is available for everyone).
Memory leak fixes found by a kind sould running Insure.
Alpha fixes (George Lebl).
Desktop menu includes an option to create a new window.
