Other news
Unless critical bugs are found, this will be the last release in the 0.3.x series. It will most likely also be the last version of based on C#, GTK# and Mono.

Work has started on on a brand new 0.4 release where much of the core design are rewritten. This work is currently being done in Python, using pygobject to target GTK+ 3.

The release/0.3 branch will remain accessible for anyone wanting to fork it and continue the Mono based version.

    Thanks for the update.

    0.4 release, will it only be GTK+ 3 compatible or GTK+ 2 too?

    • Christian says:

      Only GTK+ 3 at the moment. The release is still quite some time away, so hopefully GTK3 will be mainstream on the various distros at that time.

    Nice idea to switch from mono to python.
    Nice work! I love !

    I love the idea of switching from Mono to python
    Btw is going to be rewritten so could it have some graphical interface changes too.
    By graphical interface changes i mean something more modern like no application menu, but simply a menu button which contains all that stuff (like in chrome/elementary applications).
    It would be cool if would get some cool and modern interface changes like cyberduck, ubuntu one client, elementary applications or even like the new gnome mockups http://live.gnome.org/Design/Apps/.

    Keep up the good work !

      The move to gtk3 makes it a bit easier to style the app in general, and I’d sure like to modernize the gui in the future.
      I plan to keep the gui up-to-date as gnome in general evolves. I also hope the move to python will help to attract some contributions from other devs.
      The focus for the first python based release however is simply to get everything working, and working well (better than the current version). The gui will look more or less the same as today.
      So far everything looks very promising.

    This sounds very good to me. I hope the new design will integrate nicely with Unity and GNOME 3, but first the fonctionality ! I embrace the python version let’s get a mono-free ftp client but wouldn’t a rewrite from Mono to Vala be easier ?
