A new release of the Nautilus graphical shell and file manager is 
available. There have been many improvements since Nautilus 1.0.3 was 
released, mostly speedups and bug fixes.

Source code is available at the usual place in ftp.gnome.org (or will be 
once the next update happens).

Some items that are new in 1.0.4:

        Fixes to bugs and other changes to speed up Nautilus's
        display of new directories (Yoann, Darin, Maciej)

        FreeBSD compile fixes (Darin, Gene)

        Fixes to compile with C compilers that don't allow empty
        structures (Darin)

        Fix to the MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME setting code to make the Mozilla
        component work in more configurations. (peter@ximian.com, Darin)

        Make thumbnails always go in the home directory if "Make
        Folder Appearance Details Public" is set to Never (John,
        Michael Rothwell)

        Fixed a few small i18n problems. (Darin)

        Use Bonobo to handle additional key bindings, instead of using
        our own hack code. (Darin)

        Make default Web Search use google instead of the defunct
        Eazel search page. (Darin)

        Fix bug reading track info from MP3 files. (Jon K Hellan)

        Make News panel flash less. (Andy)

        Fixed bug in throbber destruction process (Darin, Owen)

        Added prelighting and tracking to the throbber (Anders, Darin)

        Use Control keys rather than Alt keys to move around in the
        file manager windows because Sawfish changed to use Alt again
        (John Harper)

        Fix MIME bug that might lead to the wrong default component
        getting used. This could have been what caused some people to
        get the text view instead of the web page view. (Darin)

        Fix problems typing non-ASCII characters on some systems
        (Johan Dahlin, Darin)

        Install IDL files for non-C component programmers (Johan
        Dahlin, Darin, Ramiro)

        Support trash on XFS volumes (Caleb J. Land, Darin)

        Updated lots of icons, including most of the ones in the
        classic GNOME theme (Ben FrantzDale, Seth Nickell)

        Updated quick reference, release notes, and user manual in
        help. (Dan Mueth)

        Obfuscate passwords in URIs in thumbnail directories.
        (Miguel Rodriguez Perez)

        Dumb down run-nautilus so it doesn't start Nautilus slowly.
        It is really obsolete (Darin).

        Get rid of Eazel home page and Eazel services in first-time
        druid (Havoc)

        Make standard view components hang around for 30 seconds,
        making it faster to use the same viewer repeatedly (Zbigniew

        Other bug fixes (Juan Pablo Mendoza, limval@yahoo.com,
        Frederic Devernay, Darin, Benedikt Roth, Andy)

Nautilus 1.0.4 does not have any new requirements beyond those for 
Nautilus 1.0.3. Unlike previous releases, you don't need a new gnome-vfs, 
librsvg, or eel. In addition, Nautilus no longer depends on ammonite or 
trilobite, since both of those were there to support Eazel services which 
no longer exist. There are bug fixes and improvements to Bonobo that make 
Nautilus work better, so Bonobo 1.0.7 or newer is recommended.
