GNU Interactive Tools (gnuit) 4.9.3 has been released.

This release mainly contains bugfixes, with a few small new features.

gnuit (GNU Interactive Tools) is a set of interactive text-mode tools,
closely integrated with the shell.  It contains an extensible file
system browser, an ascii/hex file viewer, a process viewer/killer and
some other related utilities and shell scripts.  It can be used to
increase the speed and efficiency of most of the daily tasks such as
copying and moving files and directories, invoking editors, compressing
and uncompressing files, creating and expanding archives, compiling
programs, sending mail, etc.  It looks nice, has colors (if the standard
ANSI color sequences are supported) and is user-friendly.

One of the main advantages of gnuit is its flexibility.  It is not
limited to a given set of commands.  The configuration file can be
easily enhanced, allowing the user to add new commands or file
operations, depending on its needs or preferences.

gnuit is available from

What's new:

** Fixed MacOS support.

** Fixed large file support on 32bit systems.

** On install, remove files belonging to earlier versions.

** gitfm: Scale file sizes when needed to fit available space.

** gitfm: New panel minor mode AbbrevSize: Always scale file sizes (to
   e.g. 123M). Accessed with escape-e-S (panel-enable-abbrevsize).

** New config variables: GroupDigits, MaxUnscaledDigits.

** Fix parsing of comments in config files.

** gitaction: Added more viewers; If no explicit action defined for
   filetype, falls back to see(1), metamail(1), [on MacOS] open(1),
   and finally $GIT_PAGER.

** Added explicit license notice to many files.
