4Pane is a highly configurable file manager for Linux and GNU-Hurd. It has dual twin-panes, each of which has a directory tree-view pane and a detailed-list pane for files. Advanced features include multiple undo and redo of most operations (including deletions), archive management including 'virtual browsing' inside archives, multiple renaming/duplication of files, a terminal emulator and user-defined tools.

When moving or pasting files, optionally retain their previous modification date.
Support extracting/verifying 'rar' archives, if 'unrar' is installed, but not 'rar' creation.
'unrar' is freely available (though with a licence restriction) but the 'rar' licence is too restricted.
Previewing images now supports svg files too.
4Pane no longer builds with wxWidgets 2.8; it now requires 3.0 or higher.
