Itinstalls several modules which are automatically used by the API applicationsusing libgio. There is also support fuse allowsapplications not using gio to access the gvfs gvfs filesystems.The model differs from eg gnome-vfs this mustbe mounted file systems before they are used. It is a central daemon (gvfsd) which manages coordinting frames, and each mount is (typically) in its own daemon process (although frames can share daemon process).

More backends are planned.gvfs also contains modules for Gio that implement hal volume monitorsand URI gnome-manager configuration.There plan is a set of programs from the command line beginning with "gvfs-" thatlets you run commands ( like cat, ls, stat, etc.) on file in the gvfsmounts.
