Today I got most of file moving working in nautilus-gio, so that means that most functionality is there, even if its quite raw and not very tested. Its time to get more people involved in testing and working on the new codebase.
So, I just merged the nautilus gio-branch to HEAD.
WARNING: Its still far from done, and it might eat your files. Don’t use in anger! If it breaks you get to keep both pieces.
There is a list of things left todo on the wiki. But even after that is finished there is bound to be a bunch of stuf to be fixed.
So, use with caution, and give feedback.
UPDATE: Please file bugs against the GIO component of nautilus in bugzilla, so we can track this
