App/Data path change?

I've installed the "suite" when John first released it a while back. As far as I can remember, there was always an "Apps" directory and a "Data" directory. When I extracted ClamWin, I noticed it created an "App" directory instead of an "Apps" directory. This really throws the launcher off its groove. Has the structure changed since the initial release of the suite? Will it now be "App/Data" and not "Apps/Data"? How can I change my install so all the apps can live together in happy harmony once more?

Thanks,

Tom

It Supports Both

You can split what's in Portable ClamWin up into Apps/PortableClamWin and Data/PortableClamWin as in the suite if that's your preference. The next release of the suite may do away with the Apps/Data split and rely on an App/Data split within the app directories themselves. This makes it easier to do upgrades and share a single app with someone else. It will make backups a bit tougher, but I'm releasing a new utility to handle that, too.

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