I've spent some time on the Commander project this weekend, a lot of nice changes have been implemented and one of the bigger changes is the new Command API that let's a user/developer to write his/her own commands and plug it in. The built in commands uses this as well. I will continue on this for a bit more, but it seems to be working.

You can read about all the changes on Github

After getting some positive feedback on the quick hack I did Monday night, I've continued to hack on the command window replacement for Windows.

I've made the command window a wee bit more stable, and removed some of the annoying flickering when listing large directories as one example.
