Worker is a file manager for the X Window System with the classical two panel interface. It features a fully graphical configuration, while still allowing manual editing of the configuration file without the need to restart Worker. Any external program can be integrated easily into the GUI using buttons, hotkeys, and file type actions. Worker uses file recognition by file content or by filename extension (or both). Different actions with completely configurable commands can be assigned to each file type.

Release Notes: This release adds a new "flatten_dir" command to show all files in a flat list. The filter select command now selects the best matching pattern by default. The path jump command also stores the accessed file in the database. The extended file type test supports checking for broken symlinks. Some bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release improves the path jump dialog. It is now possible to hold entries which matches a given filter and then refine the filter only for those entries. The matching entries can be panelized in the list view. The command menu now also temporarily highlights the button which corresponds to the current entry in the menu. The start prog interface has been improved to support command history and command completion. The left and right cursor keys allow navigation within a virtual directory. Some minor bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: The command menu has been improved to show assigned shortkeys and to list entries about accessing list modes and their configuration. Registered commands are also available in the command menu. The matching characters for a string filter are highlighted in the bookmark, path jump UI, and the list view. The search operation can also be started from a virtual directory. The estimation of the remaining time for file copy has been fixed if elements have been renamed. Some other minor bugs have also been fixed.
Release Notes: In this release, a new command menu is available to allow access to menus and buttons without using the mouse. An update feature has been added to let the user import new configuration entries. MIME description can also be used for file type recognitions from libmagic. The "start prog" command allows you to filter the list of file types. The list view bar shows a message while loading a directory. Some bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: The virtual directory mode now supports all Worker commands (internal and external). It is possible to copy files between real and virtual directories (from search results). The virtual directory mode is the default mode now. Some minor other issues have been fixed and the translations have been updated.
