Smb4k 1.0.0 is now available (in source) from the developer's site - now athttp://sourceforge.net/p/smb4k/home/Home/
This is a final release, not a beta.
I have tried to compile it myself, but failed - probably due to my lack of expertise. The problem seemed to be that it could not find one of its help files, though this was actually present, so far as I could tell. Presumably there was some dependency which I had not fulfilled.
A Community version for MEPIS 11 would be very welcome.
