Newly introduced eject feature


I just wanted to thank you regarding the introduction of the eject functionnality. I used the Platform 1.0 for a while and was a bit annoyed that such a feature wasn't available, so I switched to Portable Start Menu from another developer. At the moment I think Portable Start Menu has the most user-friendly and most efficient eject feature from all the portable application launchers.

I know the 1.1 Platform just came out, but I would like to see the eject feature to evolve in that direction. To be more precise, gracefully close the opened files on the current USB key with a visual indicator there is something going on (number of softwares still opened), and then automatically eject the USB key with a prompt to remove it.

An example of the software can be found here

Thanks again for all those portable applications, I use a lot of them daily.

The eject feature right now was just to have something that works in there. There's no solid open source eject feature at the moment (PSMenu is closed source/proprietary). We have one coming in the next release, though.

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

Eject feature improvements

I like the eject feature. Can it automatically eject the device instead of linking you to the eject menu...that would be much faster

above yours, John said that there will be something like that in the 1.5 release of the Platform.
