Nemo version 1.0.0 was released in July 2012 along with version 1.6 of the Cinnamon, reaching version 1.1.2 in November 2012. It started as a fork of the GNOME file manager Nautilus v3.4 after the developers of the operating system Linux Mint considered that "Nautilus 3.6 is a catastrophe". Developer Gwendal Le Bihan named the project "nemo" after Jules Verne's famous character Captain Nemo, who is the captain of the Nautilus.
