PeerBlock Portable 1.1 r518 has been released. PeerBlock is an IP firewall with support for blacklists and whitelists. It can be used to block advertising, spyware, activity monitoring and more. Both legacy and modern versions of PeerBlock in 32-bit and 64-bit variants are included and automatically switched between in PeerBlock Portable, so it will work on all your PCs. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.
From the publisher: PeerBlock lets you control who your computer "talks to" on the Internet. By selecting appropriate lists of "known bad" computers, you can block communication with advertising or spyware oriented servers, computers monitoring your p2p activities, computers which have been "hacked", even entire countries! They can't get in to your computer, and your computer won't try to send them anything either. And best of all, it's free!
PeerBlock Portable includes the 32-bit and 64-bit variants of both the legacy and modern versions of PeerBlock, automatically selecting the appropriate one, for full support on every PC you use.
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
PeerBlock Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.
