WinMerge Portable 2.6.12 - Development Test 2 (Testers needed)

WinMerge is an Open Source visual text file differencing and merging tool for Win32 platforms. It is highly useful for determing what has changed between project versions, and then merging changes between versions. It is famous for being used to compare changes by Steve.

Anyway, without any further adieu, et, viola.
<?php
//download('WinMerge Portable 2.6.12 - Development Test 1', 'now') or die();
/* download('WinMerge Portable 2.6.12 - Development Test 2', 'now') or die(); */
download('WinMerge Portable 2.6.12 - Development Test 3', 'now') or die();
?>

Will Test

I shall test.

Edit: Ok, some small tweaks you can make. First off, your icon in App\Appinfo should only have a 48, 32, and 16 of both 32bit and 256bit I believe. Second, you can UPX the WinMerge directory like 4 megs, any reason why you didn't? Now this one sounds stupid, but I believe there's no capitals in the App\appname directory anymore. Third, in the launcher the APP variable is now APPNAME, and FRIENDLYNAME is PORTABLEAPPNAME. The launcer's at 1.5.3.0. The icon in the launcher should link the the App\Appinfo\appicon.ico icon so you don't need the other in their. The outfile should be ..\..\${NAME}.exe. You can use the 'BestCompression' code from the latest Fx launcher. Should the copyrights not extend to 2008 now? You can change the version number and copyrights in the readme as well. John said to use the KompoZer installer, and you left all of the PRE and POST install code for Firefox in there. You're missing an AppSource.txt in Other\Source. And just so you know, it cleans up the registry key fine.

Sorry bout all that. Wanted to make your first release perfect. Smile

OK.

I shall address each of these individually, so as not to miss an insult Blum

First off, your icon in App\Appinfo should only have a 48, 32, and 16 of both 32bit and 256bit I believe.
Take that up with the WinMerge team, I only stole it from them Blum

Second, you can UPX the WinMerge directory like 4 megs, any reason why you didn't?
Maybe because I don't have UPX and UPaX on this computer? Ever think of that, eh? Blum

Now this one sounds stupid, but I believe there's no capitals in the App\appname directory anymore.
To Windows, it's all the same. The NTFS file-system doesn't care about case.

Third, in the launcher the APP variable is now APPNAME, and FRIENDLYNAME is PORTABLEAPPNAME. The launcer's at 1.5.3.0.
Actually, that would be forth, eh? The reason I didn't increment the launcher version is because I haven't taken a look at the other ones yet. All I did was the installer (which you tell me later, is wrong Blum ) and the actual app.

The icon in the launcher should link the the App\Appinfo\appicon.ico icon so you don't need the other in their. The outfile should be ..\..\${NAME}.exe.
I swear I did that.

You can use the 'BestCompression' code from the latest Fx launcher.
Wasn't aware that existed.

Should the copyrights not extend to 2008 now? You can change the version number and copyrights in the readme as well.
Fine.

John said to use the KompoZer installer, and you left all of the PRE and POST install code for Firefox in there.
What he meant was, "Patrick, you can use the KompoZer installer, because you suck. Everyone else, use the most up to date one, which is Firefox" Blum

You're missing an AppSource.txt in Other\Source. And just so you know, it cleans up the registry key fine.
Yeah, I didn't include that, because I haven't uploaded the source yet. You know, couldn't be screwed and all that. And I know it cleans up the registry key fine, I use it myself Blum

Sorry bout all that. Wanted to make your first release perfect. Smile

Doh.

That's what I get for using WinMerge to copy lines across from FFP Blum

Also, while I'm at it, you need to change newadvsplash::wait to newadvsplash::stop /WAIT in all your launchers.

When Upgrading

I haven't upgraded the splash component yet. Haven't checked it out for stability, etc.

SF?

You want to upload it to the SF project and post it in the Dev Test section so it's sure to get wider exposure?

Nope.

SF is way too complicated to upload to for just a Development Test. Uploading to my site is faster.

Ready?

Ryan, you feel like this is ready? If so, please:

1. Recompile it with the official splash (check your email)
2. Double-check everything in the package to ensure all appinfo, help, etc is correct
3. Package and email it to me for digital signing
4. Create the WinMerge page in the app directory within Utilities (leave unpublished)
5. Create an announcement story for it for the front page (leave unpublished)
6. Ping me when ready

Actually,

If I've seen correctly, it has a few association errors, so I'd say not yet. I'm planning to email the author at some point to clarify.

Edit: Those were actually my MRU entries, so everything should be fine. Now, to update the WinMerge Portable page...

Hmm

It's worth noting that I'm using the latest version of newAdvSplash, which you mentioned is relatively untested. Should I downgrade?
