Source from git repository

For those of you who feel really adventurous, or maybe want to hack on the latest code, can download the latest development sourcecode or individual files directly from git (just remember to run "" when compiling). But be ware that there can be serious bugs in code from git, this code is for hacking, development and testing purposes.

GNOME Commander has its source tree hosted at To check out the latest code from the git repostory, for the (potentially unstable) master branch, the following command below can be used. See our development page for more details.
