ok. I've simply overseen this piece. To me it seems a little hard to
understand, too, for someone unfamiliar with gcmd. For example, send
what to where ? And file operations via context menu are standard
anyway, i would not mention this explicitly.  How about something like 
"The right-mouse context menu can easily be extended by entries calling 
external applications (like special viewers or custom shell
scripts) to process selected files or directories."

oh, well. :)

yes, ok

bug free is not quite right, at least for 1.01

This crashes with some mount actions (i didn't track by now)
and also did hang sometimes when i copied large amounts of files at
once. Maybe a FAM issue, i don't know.
Also some minor but annoying issues, like you can't  create a new dir 
in a window frame by right-mouse menu where's no 'empty'  space left to
right click ?  Or the fact that i still don't understand the F5 copying
-- it's  not working like the mc analogon somehow (but should, IMHO) 
... and no safety prompt when moving or copying whole directories - this
is an important feature with drag and drop i believe ... and delete
actions don't get updated by FAM here ... and i can't save the dir
positions for next startup (which would be the easiest way to assign
start directories). I could probably add more. But all of this should be
easy to fix.
