Xfce The Xfce development team is pleased to announce that the first release candiate of Xfce 4.4 is now available for download. A lot of bugs were fixed during the last two months and several new features were added. For example the brand new Xarchiver 0.4.0 is included, trash support was added to Thunar and xfdesktop, and the overall memory usage was reduced. See the ChangeLog for a complete list.

I must say the interface looks a lot more xfce'esque than the current file manager. It's cleaner, more beautiful and undoubtly more user friendly.

I agree wholeheartedly. Traditionally xfce file managers have sucked, unfortunately. SUCKED! I say!

what I found rather neat about it (trying it on debian etch) is how it manages to associate appropriate icons with various executables, as in /usr/bin/amarok shows an icon of the howling wolf head, etc. not for everything of course, but still pretty nifty.

To my surprise (well, actually I just wasn't paying attention) both Thunar and xarchiver 0.4.0 are already in the Arch repo. My first reaction is very positive. It's a bit like nautilus, but done well ;)

You mean in AUR, not in the main or extra repositories?

Can you use Thunar with Xfce-4.2.3 or you need to upgrade the whole xfce to the latest 4.4-RC1?
