Apps Ready For Official Release, Post Here

If you've created an app that is currently posted as a Development Test and the following apply:

  • it has been tested by folks and no bugs are found
  • it conforms to the guidelines below
  • you are willing to support it on an ongoing basis (at least 6 months)

... then please post a note in this thread. Please note that this is for the actual authors/packagers only. Please don't nominate someone else's app for inclusion. Developers/packagers, you can list up to 10 apps in a single post, but please don't continuously add new apps to one of the top 10 comments and please don't remove apps once they are crossed out. Once a post is within the top 10, we will whittle it down and then move on to the next post.

Here are the Development Test guidelines:

  1. Compile the Development Test Splash Screen into your launcher
  2. Follow the current PortableApps.com Format™ specification.
  3. Use the current PortableApps.com Installer (see PortableApps.com Format™ specification for details).
  4. Doing a new release titled "Dev Test 1" or appropriate number. The installer should follow the standard naming convention of AppNamePortable_1.2_Dev_Test_1_English.paf.exe

Posts will be removed as the apps are released.

Apps that are not in PortableApps.com Format and ready for official release on PortableApps.com will be removed from this thread.

Java and .Net apps delayed

We won't be releasing Java or .NET apps just yet. Java we're waiting on licensing finalization with Oracle and will shortly have the only fully legal portable Java implementation which we'll work apps from. .NET apps are awaiting the new app directory which will have a special section for apps requiring .NET which will be hidden by default and include information on why it won't work on most public PCs (which are XP and have no .NET installed at all).

Note: This topic was originally retired but has been revived and we've been having developers pickup and revise some older apps that never made it to release. We're working on the newer postings quicker, but the old ones are getting picked off one by one as well.

I'm curious as well. Is this post still the way to submit an app for inclusion in the directory? If not, is there any other way?

No Official Process

I think the worst thing here is that there is no open known policy for releasing new products.

On one hand there is known problem of human resources taking care of new releases but on the other you see new applications with no need (Like the 4th application doing the same as other 3) released.

I wish there was an open and robust process (Which include real measurement of demand).

For instance there are few great applications perfectly maintained by mwayne that for some reason are ignored.
Not to speak on a great release of Visual Studio Code (https://github.com/garethflowers/vscode-portable).

I think that we have to see

I think that we have to see what's on John's plate first. He just released a major update to the platform and added .net app support. I agree with what you are saying though. It might dissuade authors from releasing apps and maintaining PAFs. Maybe it's time to start a dialogue with John on how new apps are getting added and how it can get more streamlined. This is my 2 cents.

Off Topic, Too Many Abandoned

This is off topic here as this is solely for apps that are ready to be selected from. At present, I wind up handling about 90% of app releases due to developer abandonment. So most apps that are added are less intense (in terms of packaging, testing, frequency of release, and support) or publisher driven (the publisher themselves is on board and doing things). In the future, we'll likely have an upkeep requirement where in order for an app to be even considered for release developers must promise to build every update within 48 hours of the base app being released for at least a period of 1 year. If you'd like to discuss this further, please create a new topic (don't reply here) and it can be discussed. All of these comments will be removed in the near future.

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

done!

I created another topic for that some time ago: https://portableapps.com/node/57754
My app is still ready for official release in my opinion: I'm doing the updates quickly, and I'll do it for a year at least Smile

I'll wait till you have the time to consider Zotero as an official app Yes
