Test Releases

As with most open source projects, PortableApps.com makes available test versions of our software for people to test before we post a 'final' or 'stable' version of an application.


Releases labeled 'Pre-Release' are either late beta or release candidate quality builds of applications posted for final testing before release. These are applications that are already in the application list or will be once they've been fully tested by the community.

Development Test Releases

Releases labeled 'Development Test' and bearing the black and white PortableApps.com Development Test Release splash screen are alpha or beta quality builds of applications meant for developers to test new features and new applications or for newer developers who have not yet released software on PortableApps.com. As some may be from inexperienced developers or packagers, they should be scanned for viruses before installation and tested in a secure environment. These releases are for testers only and are not intended for everyday use.

Apps To Be Added

Developers with apps that need to be added or updated should post a comment here. Comments will be deleted once the app is added/updated. This is not a place to request apps. Those requests belong in the Request Apps Forum.

This is the template that will yield the desired format for posts. (this is only an example, you must replace all links and text with their proper values)

      &lt;td&gt;&lt;a href="http://taskcoach.org/"&gt;Task Coach&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt;
      &lt;td&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Office:&lt;/strong&gt; to-do list / task manager&lt;/td&gt;
      &lt;td&gt;&lt;a href="http://portableapps.com/user/24376"&gt;Patrick Patience&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt;
      &lt;td&gt;&lt;a href="http://portableapps.com/node/11939"&gt;0.69.1 Dev Test 2&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt;

Please also note that the ampersand (&) must be escaped as &amp;: thus "Music & Video: this & that" must be "Music &amp; Video: this &amp; that". When trying to get it to produce the code that way, that means that you need to escape it a second time as &amp;amp;. (and to produce that in the source here I had to escape it three times!). Also where possible try to make the short description lowercase as it's neater.

What will be accepted

Only applications in the PortableApps.com Format as Development Tests (or Pre-Releases after that) will be accepted for this page. Additionally, full packages and online installers will be added, but launcher-only packages which don't include the base application and will not download it automatically will not be.


      <td><a href="http://jetbrains.com/idea">IntelliJ IDEA 13.1 Community Edition</a></td>
      <td><strong>Development:</strong>Java IDE environment</td>
      <td><a href="http://portableapps.com/user/266194">M J </a></td>
      <td><a href="http://portableapps.com/node/41906"> Dev Test 2</a></td>

The online installer downloads http://download-cf.jetbrains.com/idea/ideaIU-13.1.4b.exe but looks for the MD5 checksum of http://download-cf.jetbrains.com/idea/ideaIC-13.1.4b.exe (with the incorrect name of ideaIU-13.1.4b.exe). I assume it's supposed to download the 'IC' file, but it won't use it unless it has been renamed to the name of the 'IU' file.

I don't think it should be added to this list till either it (legally) bundles the appropriate version of the base app in the installer, or correctly downloads and extracts the necessary files from the base app's installer without unnecessary user interaction.

BirdFont has been added to the list.
FYI another font editor/creator tool here (FontForge) has been officially released under the "Utilities" category, so I listed BirdFont also under Utilities.

johan.mattsson.m's picture

Thank you. Wouldn't it be better to move FontForge into graphics? Font creation is after all about graphic design and utility can mean a lot of different things.

John T. Haller's picture

Graphics is used to mean more standard graphics apps (mainly graphics creation). Quite a few items overlap more than one field, to be honest. I'm debating whether to split font management and font creation based on your question to be honest. Fonts used to really be independent of graphics, but with the advent of picture-based downloadable web fonts (as we use) it's definitely blurred.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I'm about halfway done verifying that all of these are acceptably in PortableApps.com Format and install properly.
I did notice an issue with PotPlayer: I don't think the Installer's EULA page is supposed to look like this. I've added it anyway, but is this only happening for me or do others see it this way too?

I'll check the rest soon.

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

but I can't figure it out why this is happening. As you can see the EULA is in English and nothing is really different to other EULA's I made.

Added/updated : Pulover’s Macro Creator, ReNamer, SpaceSniffer, WinScan2PDF to the list.

I didn't add SciTE4AutoHotkey for a couple of reasons: I'm not very familiar with Plugins yet, so I don't know if it's right or not, and it's a plugin for an old Dev Test which (AFAICT) is no longer needed as (IINM) you've added it in by default to your current Dev Test of the app it's meant to be install to.

www.MacroCreator.com seems to be down, so I set the homepage link to go to Pulover's GitHub repository.

SpaceSniffer's Dev Test # should have increased when you posted a new version, even if the only change is that the base app is bundled rather than utilising an Online Installer, and SpaceSniffer's GitHub and SourceForge links are switched.

I figured out your EULA issue with PotPlayer Portable 1.6.49952 Dev Test 1. It's because the Installer can't read some of the characters that are in the EULA.txt file if it's been saved as an "ANSI" txt file. (I see “ and ”, but I think there's more because replacing all of those with " still doesn't fix it)
If I open the EULA.txt in notepad, click File > Save As…, change the Encoding setting to Unicode, and save it over itself then PA.cI generates an Installer with a readable EULA page.
This should be posted about in a [Bug] thread for further investigation.

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

SciTE4AutoHotkey is designed for AutoHotkey_L Which old Dev Test are you referring to? MiKTeX is also listed here and it's a CommonFiles plugin.

MacroCreator: He has always some trouble with his host.

SpaceSniffer: Thanks for your hints. I fixes the links.

Thanks for your help with the EULA. The following characters caused the issue " ´ ' . It now creates a readable EULA.

Looks like I was wrong about the relationship of these Dev Tests (and a couple other related ones).
I'll analyse them more thoroughly later and post comments on their threads.

P.S. You might want to remove AutoHotkey from the outdated dev test's.

Added, but since it has all that debugging stuff built in, it's really more than just a macro/script editor, so I called it an "AutoHotkey IDE".

That version contains 1.9.4.msysgit.1 (aka 1.9.4-preview20140815) which is outdated as of today, can you guys get it updated to 1.9.4.msysgit.2 (aka 1.9.4-preview20140929)? or are the differences between the two too minor to bother with?
I'm calling it 1.9.4-1 to differentiate it from the other two 1.9.4 releases (which by my versioning would be 1.9.4 & 1.9.4-2), when it gets updated again I'd recommend following this (or similar) versioning system.

Edit: Looks like it's been updated, but the download link hasn't yet. I've made a note in the thread's comments.

I'm having the same experience as m-alice & John T. Haller when launching this on Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit, both with your up-to-date Dev Test and agdurrette's now-outdated Dev Test. Sad

I've added it anyway because it looks right, it's up-to-date, and issues like this are one of the reasons we make Dev Tests.

Note to testers: PLEASE TEST THIS!

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

I'm going through the list and don't know what to do with "Challenger encryption software".
First, should it be on this list? It's noted in the comments that the app is not open source (indicating that permission is needed if the app is to be bundled), and that the user who packaged it did not (yet?) receive explicit permission to bundle it, however, despite the linked .paf.exe being non-functional, the (improperly) linked GitHub repository contains both the app itself, and a (functional) .paf.exe which bundles the app.
Second (if it is to be kept on the list), it appears on the list as being by "Justin Russul", but the link goes to "orschiro" whose profile shows the name "Robert Orzanna". Does anyone know what's up with that? or what should be done?

This is what's in the list currently:

      <td><a href="http://www.encryption-software.de/challenger/en/index.html" rel="nofollow">Challenger Encryption Software</a></td>
      <td>Folder and file encryption</td>
      <td><a href="http://portableapps.com/user/194165" rel="nofollow">Justin Russul</a></td>

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

Gord Caswell's picture

As this app is a number of versions out of date with no apparent work being done, I'd say you can move it to the outdated list, and fix the user to point to orschiro's profile.

But should it be on the list at all? Isn't it technically illegal distribution? if so, we should probably remove the listing, (and the link[s] in the thread too?) right?

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

OK, I removed the "Challenger Encryption Software" list item, but technically we still have a link to an illegal package in the opening post of the thread. Should said link be removed? (If so can somebody do so? I'm not a mod)

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

Could I convince somebody to take a look at this, I'm not sure if it should be added to the list here or not:

Edit: Also, you keep leaving the name out of your FastStone entries. Good thing I don't just Copy/Paste. Laughing out loud

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

Can somebody please delete some of these comments? Most if not all of them are taken care of, and it's getting cluttered.
I don't have moderator privileges, so I can't do it myself.

Stop moving my apps to the outdated tests section.

"The applications listed in this table are of unknown quality and status. They may not be up to the latest PortableApps.com specifications, may not contain the Development Test Release splash screen, and Dev on these portable apps seems to have halted. These releases are for developers only, and should be updated or marked obsolete."

My apps are not of unknown quality or status, are up-to-date regarding the PA.c specs, and development has not halted on any of them (DSpeech being the only one I've been lagging on, but that will be updated soon as well). Clearly, my apps do not fit the description of what should go in that section.

Thank you.

I figured it was done due to the outdated base app, but that would be unnecessary to do for apps that are active since it would become a bit overwhelming to do for every app every time a new update for the base app is released. That and if the app is going to be updated within a week or so, it seems tedious to move it there anyway.

Though I'm mostly just complaining because I had to move it back, which takes just a tad bit longer to do than find it and adjust values. Sticking out tongue

As someone with dyslexia, I find the template extremely difficult to work with, please can the website be modified so relevant areas requiring alteration are presented in black while remaining code strings are shown as mid-grey?

Thank you kindly,


PS: It is not as bad viewed in preview or final post, difficulty is mainly in edit mode where formatting is more compressed and many parts are also underlined in red.

     Sorry but I won't add this to the list as it currently sits. This is because the license doesn't clearly allow for the kind of repackaging that you've done.
Please either repackage it as an Online Installer (see the installer.ini section of the PAL Manual), or get (and give proof of) permission from the Developer/Publisher of the base app.


Also, while what you've described sounds like it might be nice, implementing it sounds pretty difficult. The closest thing I can think of is syntax highlighting, which, while a good idea, is unnecessary on this site and likely more work to implement than it's worth.

If you want it badly enough though, there might be an extension to add it to your browser, otherwise I recommend that you copy/paste your post out to an external editor that supports syntax highlighting (e.g. NotePad++), edit it (you may have to tell the editor which language to highlight it as), then copy/paste it back when you're ready to preview/submit it. (IIRC there's a Firefox extension to automate the process, or you could try Text Editor Anywhere which sounds like pretty much the same thing except anywhere, and activated with a hotkey.)

I didn't look too closely at this one, as winterblood seems to be taking an interest in it and I don't deal with Java very much so I'm not sure I could test it adequately; but for future reference, the Dev Test number is supposed to reset to 1 for each new base app version.
(e.g. 2.0.3 DT1, 2.0.3 DT2, 3.0.0 DT1, etc.)

I didn't take too close a look at this one either (I'm not in a Java mood, sorry) but I'd think you can probably redirect the %USERPROFILE%\UMLet folder with a -D command-line argument; if you don't get it figured out yourself before I get back around to looking at it I'll see if I can figure out what exactly it would need and post on it's thread directly.

Being for a game that isn't open-source or free, I've only made it an online installer. Once installed and run, the Minecraft Native Launcher will download the rest of itself.

From there it's the same as a standard installation of Minecraft from the new launcher.

I will be working on making a more complete online installer and launcher (PA.L) once I figure out how to work the NsJSON plugin for NSIS.

I think I've done all the info correctly, will appreciate the feedback.
Through communication with John via the comments here: http://portableapps.com/node/43397

I've decided to not try and get this official (as John is already working on a build of this himself). It will still be available, but purely as an alternative.

It will be done when it's done.
