GNOME VFS is the GNOME virtual file system. It is the foundation of the
Nautilus file manager. It provides a modular architecture and ships with
several modules that implement support for local files, http, ftp and others.
It provides an URI-based API, a backend supporting asynchronous file
operations, a MIME type manipulation library and other features.
This package contains extra VFS modules for the GNOME Virtual
File System. It includes:
* the bzip2 module;
* the ftp module;
* the http module (which also includes support for WebDAV);
* the smb module, to browse Windows shares.
