GVFS consists of two parts: a shared library which is loaded by applications supporting GIO and GVFS itself, a collection of daemons which communicate with each other and the GIO module over D-Bus. This moves the virtual file systems out of client processes, unlike GnomeVFS, but somewhat similar to KIO.
As of July 2009[update], 107 of 113 registered GNOME components have been ported to GIO, as necessary to support GVFS URIs. For components that don't currently support GVFS URIs, the GVFS-Fuse module is used, which gives absolute paths to applications, mounted under a folder in the user's home directory.
