Marlin is dead:
https://answers.launchpad.net/marlin/+question/193884

Let's get the word out - it will need a new maintainer.
Not to be a nag, but it seems that it has been a while without any activity. Is Marlin still under development, or has the developer lost interest?

Hmm, this isn't good, I hope it isn't true. Marlin is something I've been watching (especially due to the Miller Column view mode, that is something I really like).
 
That is unfortunate for sure (I did glance briefly at the link, but obviously not close enough). Hmm. I wonder what is involved?
 
(As in, what is required to be the maintainer?)
 
Oh, just go there and write an article :D
Anyway, +elementary folks - +Cassidy James and others, perhaps you are to revive Marlin, after all, it's the File Manager for eOS Luna.
Please, please, please, somebody revive it (or at least fix Nautilus 3 UI) ... and no - don't look at me, I don't know anyway near enough Vala ...
 
If we're going to fix Nautilus 3, I want my Miller Columns, dammit :)
 
I can't make up my mind if this is news worthy or not... arrrgh damn you lack of sleep! >_<
 
But it'd be a shame to waste an epic headline: Le Marlin est mort, vive le Marlin
 
I am sad to hear that. I hope that a new developer community will be able to continue the project. One of the biggest problems of the open source community is that we have too many 'one man show' projects...
 
Oh hey, btw, we asked +am monkeyd if he'd be willing to let +elementary head up the development of Marlin and haven't received a response. We're planning on continuing development one way or another; stay tuned.
