Ok, let's see hear. (ha! get it? see hear?)
That was stupid. Anyway...
PortableApps.com Status Update: 62 New Apps, Site and SourceForge Issues, Platform Delay, Moving Forward
Welcome to another status update from PortableApps.com. As a lot has been happening over the past month and a half, we thought it would be a good idea to do an "all-hands" status update so everyone know what's been going on behind the scenes. There's been some good (62 shiny new apps, LibreOffice from The Document Foundation), some not so good (site performance issues) and some bad (a SourceForge outage and a platform release schedule delay). The good news is that the daily app releases continue, the site performance issues are fixed, the platform work is continuing and the SourceForge fixes are progressing well. We'll be announcing any major developments as well as the platform release on our RSS feed, Twitter, Facebook, homepage and in our newsletter, so keep an eye on one to find out right away. For the complete details, please read on...
Well, I guess that would depend on whether your Oliver or Chris
I've used PAL now to make all my portable apps at first because I wanted to get an official release. Now, though, I've used it so much, I have to say, good job chris (and all you contributors).
I think this has to be one of the most complex, open source NSIS program out there (well, in terms of functions and such).
I was checking out the SF site for portable apps yesterday and I saw ya'll have about 100,000 downloads of PAL.
But only 20 or so new developers?
Here you'll find a list of all the apps I've made portable (and I couple I've made from scratch). I try to keep the list as updated as possible.
These lucky seventeen apps got to go official. Hopefully more will follow.
After three dozen development test releases, I got my first official release. Best Christmas gift ever.
Now, I only wish I could see how many downloads I have of Smart Defrag...
As of today, though, I have 12,939 downloads combined from SF.net and MediaFire. So that's cool. I'm also plan on making a ton of portable apps in the future (I was trying to out-flood John, but this month, I'm just getting slaughtered).
... around 10,000 downloads, 0 bug reports (concerning the portable version)!
All fine here and thanks to all Gramps developers and contributors! But be aware, more windows users are coming (even if it's not officially supported). 8)
Some time over the past couple of days Toucan has had its millionth download Although you can't see it from the stats because you can only seem to get them since February (if anyone knows how to see the old ones that would be great!) Toucan has made it to one million in just under three and a half years, thanks to everyone for their feedback and help along the way, and here is to many more successful years!
