As we're leading up to the launch of the next release of the Platform along with many of the key apps, we're in need of some assistance with translation of strings for the new Installer. This will be used both for apps we release here on as well as by other publishers that are packaging apps in Format. Works On Vista

Since the release of Windows Vista, there have been a number of inquiries about whether the Suite and the rest of the apps published here run on Vista or not. is proud to announce that, yes, everything here works on Vista. The Suite 1.0 has worked on Vista since the day it was released in November 2006. Since that time, all the apps that are not bundled with the Suite have also been updated to work correctly with Vista.

For anyone wondering why it's been a little quiet around here, there's been a lot going on behind the scenes. We're getting ready to release a new set of updates to the apps and we'd like to get a few more beta testers to take a look at some of the pre-releases. Updated versions of Firefox Portable, Portable, AbiWord Portable, Gaim Portable, FileZilla Portable, ClamWin Portable, Portable Apps Backup and more have been posted in the Beta Testing Forum. These updates add new features, new functionality and Vista compatibility among other things. They're not quite ready for general release, so, the more folks we have testing these out, the better. If you have a few minutes to spare, please pop into the Beta Testing Forum and give a few of them a try and post your results back to the appropriate topic. Thanks! Launches!
