Subject: Nautilus 0.5 and Eazel Web Services Sneak Preview released

Nautilus version 0.5, "Preview Release 2" is here. At the same time, Eazel is releasing the first "Sneak Preview" of our Web services.

Nautilus is a desktop environment for GNOME that provides users of all experience levels a powerful way to access files, applications, media, Internet-based services, and the Web.

The Sneak Preview of Eazel's Web services includes an online storage that looks and feels like part of your desktop environment and a catalog of software with several preview applications installable through Nautilus with one click.

You can get the Nautilus packages and register for Eazel Services at:


NOTE: The machine at this address was changed today. Most people will see the new web site. But if you instead see a "Coming Later Today" message you have to wait for DNS to update. Everyone should see the new site by 7 PM PST.

In addition, the source code for Nautilus is available alongside the other GNOME packages at:


Information about packages required to build Nautilus is in the README.

Thanks to the many people who sent us suggestions and fixes after our first preview release of Nautilus and to those who have contributed to the project so far.

The web site at http://nautilus.eazel.com contains information about contributing to the Nautilus project, including pointers to our mailing lists, and information about helping with testing.

Thank you on behalf of the whole Nautilus team for checking out Preview Release 2 of Nautilus and on behalf of all the people at Eazel for checking out our Web Services Sneak Preview.
