It is available in 20 languages.
What's New
Version 0.9.0:

New features

  • Tabbed browsing support (ticket #185).
  • Added support for Xfce desktop environment (ticket #394).
  • Text viewer and editor can now display line numbers.
  • New quick list for root folders, mapped onto Alt+5 by default (ticket #400).
Improvements
  • Natural file ordering, suggested by 'andraaspar' in the forums. All symbols now come before digits (ticket #282).
  • Improved the display of filenames when they are not entirely visible, by removing characters in the middle so that both ends of the filename are visible.
  • Current folder is now automatically changed to a workable folder when it is no longer available (ticket #333).
  • Upgraded the JmDNS library (used for Bonjour support) to version 3.1.
  • Upgraded the jCIFS library (used for SMB support) to version 1.3.14.
  • Better RAR archive support (ticket #152).
  • Text viewer and editor can now wrap long lines (ticket #101).
  • The bookmarks quick list is now displayed unsorted (ticket #416).
  • Changed the quick search mechanism in quick lists to match the one used in the folder pane (ticket #171).
  • Added an option to change the font size in the text file editor/viewer by pressing Ctrl while rotating the mouse wheel (ticket #409).
  • Application state is now persisted on shutdown in a dedicated snapshot.xml file, instead of being stored along with preferences in preferences.xml (see http://trac.mucommander.com/wiki/StatePersistence).
  • Changed the color of hidden files to be different from regular files (ticket #262).
  • Changed the default keyboard shortcuts of the 'open in both panels', 'open in other panel', 'recall next window' and 'recall previous window' actions, to make room for the new tab-related shortcuts.
  • File editor/viewer is now getting the focus when initiated (ticket #92).
  • Comic Book Archive files (cbr, cbz, cb7, cbt) are now recognized as archives (#454).
Localization
  • New: Turkish translation, contributed by Emre Aytaç
  • New: Catalan translation, contributed by Jordi Plantalech
  • New: Belarusian translation, contributed by vboo.
  • New: Norwegian translation, contributed by Ingrid Amundsen.
  • Russian translation updated. Update contributed by Alexey Sirotov and Evgeny Morozov.
  • Ukrainian translation updated. Update contributed by Oleksandr Kovalchuk.
  • Spanish translation updated. Update contributed by Xavi Miró.
Bug fixes
  • Pack dialog now implements the same filename selection algorithm as other dialogs (ticket #167). - When an invalid destination was entered in a transfer dialog, the spinning dial icon would keep spinning. - Fixed an issue that would occur when creating directories whose extension match that of one of the supported archive formats (see ticket #360). - Fixed a bug that could cause the deletion of S3 files to fail. - Fixed an exception on shutdown (ticket #377). - Fixed an exception when trying to update text files in archives using the internal editor (ticket #408). - File renaming is now cancelled when the filename editor loses focus (#428). - Fixed a deadlock that could prevent the application from shutting down (#431). - Fixed an issue that caused unpacking of 7z archive file to produce corrupted files (ticket #347). - Fixed several bugs related to SMB handling (tickets #351 and #436).
Known issues
  • Some translations may not be up-to-date. Refer to http://trac.mucommander.com/wiki/Translations for more information.
  • Windows: Recycle Bin not working on Windows 64-bit with a 64-bit Java runtime (ticket #234). One way to work around this issue is to use a 32-bit Java runtime.
  • Mac OS X: "Do you want the application "muCommander.app" to accept incoming network connections?" dialog keeps popping up on startup even if the dialog has been previously accepted (ticket #339). This dialog can be suppressed by disabling 'Bonjour' support in the muCommander preferences.
  • Executable permissions on local files are not properly preserved when running a unix-based OS with Java 1.5.
  • SMB support may not work properly on non multi-language JRE.
  • 'Copy files to clipboard' not working with some applications (files are not pasted).
  • Mac OS X: some keyboard shortcuts may conflict with global system shortcuts.
  • Authentication issues when using several sets of credentials (login/password) for the same server (see ticket #76).
  • Untrusted HTTPS connections are allowed without a warning.
  • Windows Vista/7: "java.net.SocketException?: Permission denied: recv failed" error can appear when trying to access FTP sites. This seems to be a Windows firewall problem, with a possible workaround: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_idp77696

Has been user of muCommander for a long time. But not anymore.

Now I use FastCommander. Finally I can really enjoy my Mac.

It is new, native Cocoa app. It is very fast, small, takes much less memory, has consistent platform look, is simple to use and has pixel perfect UI.

No bugs, no problems, no Java and loads 10 times faster.

In the interest of full disclosure, the reviewer above ("Unspecified") is in fact the developer of the application he upholds, FastCommander.

I would like to try your app.. Do you have a demo available?
I am a gig fan of dual pane file browsers, OSX Mavericks has finally incorporated it into the finder, but it is a poor attempt at a much needed solution.

One of the best Norton-like commanders on Mac.
Stable, simple and very easy in use.
New Mac OSX block installation of this app, so you have allow yourself to install apps from different sources in the security tab, system preferences.

no mission-control compatibiliy, you can't drag window to another workspace. You can't make it fullscreen. All dialogs are modable, you can't minimize main window until operation ends.

It is a horrible joke, as most so-called utilities designed to other platforms and then ported to Mac.

The true utility MUST BE NATIVE.

This is so good software but in lastest mac os x version I have problems while install it.

When I running once show me message:
" "muCommander" is damaged and can't be opened. You shold move it do the Trash. "

But, If I run this software in command line, It works fine.

This problem may be a litte configuration.

OS X version is 10.8.3

I solve it in:
System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General -> Allow Applications downloaded from: -> Anywhere.

Copy package to applications and run it.

The MacUpdate download is corrupt. The download link from developer site is dead. I don't see an easy way to report the problem here or on the developer web site.

For some reason, when I donload that, it still claims to be version 0.9.0 (not 0.9.1).
Much thanks though, it's a really really great tool

I used the linux equivalent of this program for years. It's well worth it to give it a try... you'll be surprised how intuitive it is, in spite of what most would call it's "un-mac-like" interface.

I've been using MUCommander to browse inside .zip files without having to decompress them first. This feature alone makes it worth having around. It saved me hours when all I needed was to find a specific image inside a 675MB .zip archive...

One of the few positive things I remember about a job I had where I was moving files around a pre-networked office was that Norton Commander made the job a lot easier. muCommander does a good job of presenting a Norton Commander style presentation of your hard disk, and a lot more besides. You'll see lots of things in this app that you'll wish the Finder included.
