Warning: This is NOT a stable release. Use it at your own risk
This is the first release of FUSE experimental branch.
* Mount remote file systems via ftp, ftps, sftp, and samba with user-friendly GUI. (utilize FUSE technology)
* Some minor bug fixes.
Note: FTP/FTPS support is provide by curlftpfs. SFTP support is provided by sshfs. Samba support is provided by fusesmb. To use those new features, curlftpfs, sshfs, and fusesmb must be installed.
Besides, for FUSE to work, you must be a member of group 'fuse'. Otherwise, you'll get "permission denied". For detail, please refer to the documentation of FUSE.
* When using ftp and ftps with curlftpfs, the username and password will be passed in the command line, so they are clearly visible with 'ps' command. Use this with cautions.
* The usernames and passwords are stored in ~/.config/pcmanfm/remote-fs.list in plain text without encryption. The permission of that file is 0600, so only the owner and root can view it. However, there are still risks. Please keep this in mind.
