Nautilus was written by Bill Dorsey, Andy Fingerhut, Paul Rubin, Bill Soley and David Miller. Their Old Homepage "http://www.lila.com/nautilus/" was put offline by the original developers, maintenance/archival has been taken over by german developers.
Linux Packages for various distributions are prepared in a repository on the opensuse Build service
On Linux Nautilus uses the old OSS Sound system. Modern Linuxes often only offer the new "alsa" sound system. To use nautilus anyway you can install alsa-oss and then write "aoss nautilus" instead of "nautilus". Tested on Intel x86 architecture.
Nautilus Sources are no managed in a CVS repository at a German Sourceforge Clone called "Berlios". Check it out here. If you want to contribute, please get a Login at the Developers Main page. You can also subscribe to the nautilus project mailing list.
The 1.7c release integrates some minor patches. Modem init strings are now possible, config files handling is more UNIX-like in the UNIX Version, building the Linux Version works smoother. Also we added Binary Linux Packages. A regular 1.7c source release to some soon
The 1.7b release is the last release done by the original developers. They say it is only a bug-fixing release. Several bugs have been corrected in the Unix version and the occasional crashes reported earlier with the 32-bit Windows version appear to have been corrected. Source code for the 1.7b release (both Unix and Windows versions) is available for download at from this site.
An experimental address registration service has been set up at this site for the convenience of Nautilus users. If you are wondering how to figure out the IP address of people you'd like to talk to using Nautilus, click here to give it a try. If you just want to see who is currently registered, click here.
