Below are all of the applications I am currently packaging. This page will likely be more up to date than the official Test Releases page (at least for my stuff).

With a few days off sick for a throat/chest infection I don't have much to do but scour Sourceforge, play games, and make a few of the more interesting ones portable (in between bouts of coughing, sleeping, and feeling like my chest is going to explode and drive my concrete-filled skull through the wall). Thus the recently added dev tests of I Have No Tomatoes and Pentobi, with hopefully more to come.
PortableApps.com Status Update (2012-11-16): Hurricane Sandy Impact, New Apps, 12.0 Schedule, Donations, Site Status
Submitted by John T. Haller on November 17, 2012 - 2:21am
Now that we've caught up after the impact of Hurricane Sandy, we thought it would be a good time to do a 'PortableApps.com Status Update' to let everyone know what's going on. We've got new apps, an update on the first 12.0 platform beta, some more site tweaks, and more. Read on for the details

I wanted to take a moment to update you all on the possible impact of hurricane Sandy on PortableApps.com. Firstly, our servers for our website and downloads are located outside of the affected areas, so we've got nothing to worry about there. One of our US mirrors for downloads of open source software hosted by SourceForge may be affected, but the system will automatically fail over to the other dozen plus mirrors, so users will likely not even notice. You can continue downloading the platform and apps and using the website.

Dear PortableApps.com User,
Today, just after the new 11.0 release of our platform and the start of work on 12.0, I am going to ask you to support PortableApps.com with a donation. Why, you might ask, would a a popular software platform like ours need donations? Read on to find out the full story and to help PortableApps.com free and growing for years to come...

Been a couple of years since I posted a blog post here at portableapps.com, so I guess I'll change that up a little.
Most of you all know I'm the main developer of PChat and PChat Portable, things are a little slow at the moment and I do apologize for that fact, been trying to balance a life, coding and well just everything in general (doesn't mean I'm giving up on PChat though, heck no I'm getting ideas on improving things ).
Firefox 3.6 End of Lifed, Extended Support Release (ESR) of Firefox and Thunderbird Portable 10.0.4 Released
Submitted by John T. Haller on April 26, 2012 - 2:02am
For those who don't know, the 2+ year old Firefox 3.6.x release is officially discontinued and unsupported. It will receive no more security updates or bug fixes. All users on 3.6 should upgrade to the current Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition 12.0 immediately to ensure they are running a secure and stable browser going forward.

We've got a new test build of the PortableApps.com Installer for everyone to test. It's got a brand new look and a ton of new features including improved online installer support, improved Windows 7 taskbar integration, 2TB+ drive support, better error handling, run on finish, and more. We'd like to get a few folks testing it out so we can release it as soon as possible. You can test it out and report your findings in the PortableApps.com Installer 3.0 Pre-Release 1 (and Google Chrome Portable installer) forum post.

We're in the process of updating the PortableApps.com Installer and Format to bring in a few bug fixes (2TB+ drive issues when used with the platform), features (automated/integrated file associations), and a new set of branding to modernize the look.
