GNU Interactive Tools (gnuit) 4.9.5 has been released.

gnuit (GNU Interactive Tools) is a set of interactive text-mode tools,
closely integrated with the shell.  It contains an extensible file
system browser, an ascii/hex file viewer, a process viewer/killer and
some other related utilities and shell scripts.  It can be used to
increase the speed and efficiency of most of the daily tasks such as
copying and moving files and directories, invoking editors, compressing
and uncompressing files, creating and expanding archives, compiling
programs, sending mail, etc.  It looks nice, has colors (if the standard
ANSI color sequences are supported) and is user-friendly.

One of the main advantages of gnuit is its flexibility.  It is not
limited to a given set of commands.  The configuration file can be
easily enhanced, allowing the user to add new commands or file
operations, depending on its needs or preferences.

gnuit is available from
