Hello list,
I'm glad to announce a new version of the filebrowser plugin, you can get it

This release includes a directory "developers" containing an example how to 
use filebrowser in your own plugin - any comments on this are especially 
welcome. I decided against using Service() that you don't need to have users 
of your plugin to install the filebrowser plugin.


- Added some #ifdefs for simple recycling of filebrowser's classes in other 
plugins - refer to developers/filebrowserdemo/README on how to do this 
(thanks to Gerhard Steiner)
- Superseded the possibility to change the base directory via setup menu by 
sources command to protect system files (inspired by Andreas Leipelt)
- Changed file pattern matching not to treat beginning period specially
- Use ksh-style file pattern matching - refer to 
on how to use this
- Possibility to define filters in sources.conf
- Added possibility to call plugins
  via filebrowser.
  You need to apply appropriate patches to the plugins (or ask their 
maintainers to add them to upstream)

Your comments, bug reports and patches would be appreciated,
