nautilus-follow-symlink/caja-follow-symlink 1.2.1 released

I've just published an updated nautilus-follow-symlink/caja-follow-symlink.

After more than a decade I'm updating this little project as my guinea pig for my conversion of older projects to git. It was no longer compiling with current versions of GCC so that I made a couple changes to get it working again.

You can download the updated version as usually at
Can be downloaded as a source tarball or a pre-built binary for Debian Stable (amd64).

Besides the tarballs, the source is available at my new git repository and at GitHub:

nautilus-follow-symlink 1.2 released

I've just published an updated nautilus-follow-symlink, in case anyone is actually using it 😛

I've finally tested this version against both GNOME 2 and GNOME 3, and I'm also providing a variant to build against MATE's Caja (MATE is a fork of GNOME 2, and Caja its fork of Nautilus).

I've also written a version for Thunar, though that one I'm not publishing just yet.

This is pretty much a final version, I started looking for alternative desktops after GNOME 3 clashed with my brain, and as a consequence I've reduced my use of Nautilus considerably. I'll try to keep n-f-s buildable, but that's about it.

You can download the updated version as usually at
There's both sources and binaries for Debian Stable (i386 & ambd64) and Fedora 17 (i686).
Additionally there a binary package of caja-follow-symlink for LMDE (i386).
