Hello, Emacs Community!

Just to inform you that version 3 of the Sunrise Commander file
manager for GNU Emacs is already available at

For more details on the Sunrise Commander and some of its extensions,
please check the Emacs Wiki page:

Here's a short summary of the improvements made since version 2 (rev.
61) was released:

+ Passive navigation (in passive pane).
+ Synchronized navigation (in both panes).
+ List of directories in active pane's history ring.
+ Comparison of directories by file contents (using MD5 sums).
+ Creation of hard and symbolic, absolute and relative links (in
systems that support them).
+ Easy resizing of the panes (using "[" and "]").
+ Customizable directory history length.
+ Improved support for Editable Dired (WDired) mode in regular, as
well as in virtual panes (Careful with that axe, Eugene! Be sure to
play a while with this feature before using it for real).
+ Improved hiding of file attributes: it's now sticky in each pane and
there's a variable that can be customized to have them hidden from the
+ Improved display of hidden files: it's now sticky and there's a
variable that can be customized to have them displayed from the start.
+ Improved management of Sunrise buffers: never more than 2 Sunrise
buffers are now kept alive.
+ Improved management of open terminals, including automatic renaming,
so the last opened one is always named "*terminal*".
+ Virtual copy (copying files/directories to a virtual pane that can
be later saved to a regular file).
+ New command line expansion (CLEX) macros: %n, %N (expand to file
names without paths).
+ Fixed execution of dired-do-query-replace-regexp (Q), dired-do-find-
marked-files (F) and dired-do-search (A) from inside Sunrise.
+ Fast backup of marked files (@!).
+ Customizable font-lock colors and styles.
+ Vertical locking of panes.
+ Start and Quit hooks.

Enjoy ;)
