Thanks to jdkcn, Open Explorer now supports multiple file managers (not only nautilus) in Linux, it will detect your system file manager and use that by default i. I also added a preferences page for this, so you can customize it if the default doesn’t make you happy.

Alright, this time I will let all the screenshots speak, as they’re inherently international.
So, what’s new?
anything else? Yeah!
Essentially, this is just a bug-fixing and maintaining release. In this release, we addressed an issue on linux platform (with nautilus installed, currently seems all bugs are reported from ubuntu), similar to this one.
I’ve thoroughly tested it in Eclipse Galileo (3.5), Helios (3.6), Indigo (3.7) on Mac OS X 10.6.8, Linux (Ubuntu 11.04) and Windows XP. While I try my best to maintain the plugin compatibility with the latest Eclipse version and latest OS release, it does may have some backward compatible issue. If you encounter any problems, please consider upgrading your eclipse and OS to the latest version and try again. If this doesn’t solve the problem, please do not hesitate to report defects here or simply leave comments below.
To upgrade the plugin, just replace the jar package in your $ECLIPSE_HOME/plugins or $ECLIPSE_HOME/dropins directory.
Last but not least, thanks for all the support and feedback so far. I hope you enjoy it.

I usually do, and I almost repeat the same routine everyday (Right click the directory-> Choose Properties -> Copy the Location-> Open Explorer(e.g. “My Computer”) -> Paste the Location -> Enter), which make me feel boring and silly.
