X File Explorer (Xfe) is an MS-Explorer like file manager for X. It is based on the popular, but discontinued, X Win Commander, originally developed by Maxim Baranov.

Here are some key features of "XFE":
Very fast graphic user interface
Commander/Explorer interface with two file manager modes : a directory tree and one panel, or two panels
Integrated text viewer (X File View, xfv)
Integrated image viewer (X File Image, xfi)
Integrated RPM viewer / installer / uninstaller (X File Query, xfq)
Status line
File associations
Optional trash can for file delete operations (trash can directory is ~/.xfetrash, deleted file names have the form 'filename__YYYY-MM-DD-HH:MM:SS-µs')
Auto save registry
Right mouse click pop-up menu in tree list and file list
Change file(s) attributes
Mount/Unmount devices (for Linux only)
Bookmarks (up to 20)
Color schemes (GNOME, KDE, Windows...)
Drag and Drop in Xfe and from and to your favorite desktop
Create / Extract archives (tar, zip, gzip, bzip2, compress formats are supported)
Tool tips for long file names
Progress bars or dialogs for lengthy file operations
Thumbnails image previews
Ability to enqueue multimedia files (open command)

What's New in This Release:
fixed a bug when dragging files from Gnome (or other desktops?) to Xfe. The number of files was incorrectly set to n+1 instead of n.
fixed a small regression that occured when trying to copy or move a directory to a place
where a directory with the same name already exists
simplified the source tree to reduce the compilation time
