PortableApps.com Platform 2.0 news?

mo0n_sniper - May 16, 2010 - 2:05pm

Any news on the PortableApps.com Platform 2.0 version?

I am really interested in the upcoming update feature.
Also I would like to know that with the addition of the update feature is it possible also to install new applications from the platform, something like a linux package manger...that would be cool.

I'd like to suggest an addition to the Development Test - Forum Posting Layout.
One of the bigger delays to the release of apps is the lack of feedback from users. As someone recently posted, buggy apps get far more feedback than stable ones, so the stable ones will languish while waiting for user input.
