Translates to other languages



GNU Midnight Commander is a file manager for the shell, which is licensed under GPL and is therefore Free Software.

As Midnight Commander is a text mode application. It can be used locally and/or remotely, on the console or under the X Window System.

This is the new site for the Midnight Commander, due to some restructurements in the development team the repository was moved from savannah into this git repository.

Currently there is not much documentation about the features of Midnight Commander and how you can best work with it. As not everyone is familiar with mc, we'll provide some basic Documentation right here. Please come back soon. :)

Mailing list for developers (or interested observers :])


Mailing list for development-related discussions


Mailling list only for applyed commits into master/mc-4.6 branches (use it as RSS :) )

Mailing list for users:



A list of the lastest releases can be found here. If you are interested in developing please have also a look on our git: In order to get a checkout of the git use this:


You are interested in mc and would like to improve it? Cool! Feel free to post your patches to the tickets and review patches there. If you do this on a regular basis we'll ask you if you maybe want to become a dev. However when you work with the ticket system please have a look on our WorkingGuideLines, so that your work is noticed by us.

If you are unfamiliar with git, you can also have a short view on our GitGuideLines where the workflow with git is described quite practical.

Another way to contribute something is via Google Summer of Code 2009. We are currently looking for project ideas which we collect here. If you are a student and interested in developing Midnight Commander further please contact us via our mailinglist mc-devel(at)gnome(dot)org and discuss your idea with us.
