TkDesk release 2.0, code name "Lazarus," is now available for download.
Please keep in mind that the primary focus of this release was to provide Tcl/Tk 8.4 compatibility, as opposed to fixing bugs and adding features. If you have submitted bugs against release 1.2, do not be shocked if they have not been fixed. However, the overall goal of the 2.x set of releases will be to fix existing bugs, clean up the code, and generally prepare for major functionality improvements in later releases.
That being said, there were some new features, fixes, etc., included with this release:
Release 2.0 Highlights
There are no plans at this time to provide pre-compiled packages for this release. (Volunteers?)
It has been over three years since the last release of TkDesk. Rather than dwell on the reasons for the hiatus, suffice it to say that TkDesk has refused to die. This is evidenced not just from the almost continuous stream of emails reporting bugs and bitching about the lack of new releases... :-) but from the number of emails praising TkDesk as well. At a time when development of modern feature-full file managers is rampant, the fact that users continue to speak so highly of TkDesk is a credit to the original design and implementation, and a positive indicator of TkDesk's potential.
We hope you find TkDesk useful, and should you be interesting in contributing to the project please visit the developers page for more information.

Though nobody will believe this, the fact is that TkDesk 2.0 is currently under active development, loosely following the published roadmap. There is no set release date as yet (of course), but it is coming. Honest.
I mean it...
Stop laughing at me...

We have received word (thanks, Maik!) that Herr Bolik is still lurking around - fantastic news. Anyway, everyone can stop turning over those rocks now. Thanks.
