gxTar 0.0.6 released

[email protected] writes:

I am happy to announce the second public version of gxTar
(0.0.6), a Gnome/GTK+ front-end to the common unix archiving
utilities. gxTar is naturally distributed under the GNU GPL.

gxTar is (yet another) Gnome/Gtk front-end to common archive
utilities under unix. The goal is to make it the winzip of the unix
world. Currently zip, gzip, tar, bzip2, and arj are supported.
Current functionality includes the ability to open and create
archives, and to add, delete, extract, and view files. Drag &
drop support is coming soon (really).

The current release has been tested on Linux with the latest CVS
release of Gnome (though the latest RPMs should work). It is no
longer possible to compile a GTK+ version.. I finally got tired of
re-implementing all of the functions that gnome provided. Perhaps I
will bring the gtk version uptodate again someday, but not now.

I have massively re-written everything related to the actual
process of opening and creating files. I have also added command
line options and cleaned everything up. The Changelog and TODO
files have all of the details. The three big things remaining to
fix are:
-replace static buffers with dynamic ones
-Drag ‘n Drop
-real automake/autoconf/configure setup
