Description Javier Jardón (IRC: jjardon) 2009-08-05 10:37:29 UTC
GnomeVFS is going to be deprecated, new vfs framework for GNOME and GTK+
application is GIO/GVFS, available from glib 2.16.0. 

In short: "GIO is a gobject-based library that abstracts out various forms of
I/O, designed to separate out dependencies by allowing apps to depend on
abstract APIs, and then letting various implementations fill in these APIs.
GVFS is one such implementation, similar to gnome-vfs, which plugs into gio."
