Is marlin still under development?

Asked by Roland (Rolandixor) Taylor on 2012-04-17

Not to be a nag, but it seems that it has been a while without any activity. Is Marlin still under development, or has the developer lost interest?

Well, this sucks. Marlin is already among the best, cleanest file managers for Linux imho. Nonetheless, thank you for your work.

Will you be open to someone else taking up development?

Aww, snap! This was the only browser that followed nautilus-elementary. Hope somebody else picks it up :)

Sad to read that. Even with the occasional segfault I prefer marlin over the competition.

Arg, it is really paining me thinking about going backwards to another file browser. Ah, well...

The elementary team agreed to maintain it: http://2buntu.com/2012/04/26/marlin-is-dead-maintainer-needed/

Very good news; thank you for continuing.

I hope you don't mind asking: What is the relation between marlin and pantheon-files (going to be)?

Given the additional commits in files, it seems more efficient to rejoin both.

Marlin and Pantheon Files can live together, Marlin is the upstream
project, Pantheon Files is a rebranded version of Marlin, but the
projects won't diverge a lot, core things will go to marlin, and if the
elementary team want some UI fixes that we (Marlin developers) don't
like, they will put them in Pantheon Files.

Don't worry, this is managed efficiently, so, we won't lose time because
of these two projects ;) .

Sounds good. Thanks for the answer.

(They could choose a better name than "files", though: With such generic name it'll be a pain to search information for it on Google & co.)
