Thanks! I'll give it a try.

Thanks! I'll give it a try. I'm assuming that the "?" after German means that it MAY be available in English. lol

I don't know

The release notes say "Added translations", but I haven't found an option to change the localization. Maybe it automatically changes the language.
The keyboard layout QWERTY-USA has been added, so maybe an english locale too.
If an english locale is included, I'll create an english package too.
Thanks for testing.

The program seems to work

The program seems to work fine (Windows XP SP3), but it's all in German as far as I can tell. I hope there is an English translation floating around somewhere because I really want to use this.

Thanks

Ok, thanks.
Seems that I need to contact the author and ask at least for an english GUI. (lessions could be created on your own). Maybe the PortableApps.com community could help improving Tipp10. Smile

Tasting like it's not PAF-compliant (any more).

Because you said that, I had to quickly test its PAF compliance. Here's the report (I haven't looked at it manually at all except to note that you're missing the "Development Test 1" from the PackageVersion - you renamed the installer to fix that, wrong way):

PortableApps.com Format validation failed with 4 errors and 1 warning.

Errors

  • File App/AppInfo/appicon_16.png is missing
  • File App/AppInfo/appicon_32.png is missing
  • appinfo.ini: [Details], required value AppID is missing
  • appinfo.ini: [Details], required value Language is missing

Warnings

  • appinfo.ini: [Format]:Version needs to be updated from 0.9.8 to 2.0

Information

  • The PortableApps.com Launcher is not used. Please consider using it.
  • Suggested file App/AppInfo/appicon_128.png is missing

Two years have passed and what was probably valid back then is no longer Smile

Nothing new

And for the records: I won't do a new release just for the sake of a new release. It's stable and these PAF changes are minor. Furthermore I guess that we will celebrate the next birthday before official release too.
Thanks for testing!

Refresher

A refresher is likely to get it noticed more for release. In particular, if you switch to PAL it's much more likely to go forwards (this should be considered to have been in testing for quite a while!).

One point, though: it can't go in English, can it?

Haha,

The next version can go in English. See above.

Switch to Beta?

Want to switch to the beta build so we can get some more testers on this? I think a release soon after the official 2.1.0 of the portable version would make sense.

No

We don't need more testers. Blum
Also there is a beta for the local install version only, not a portable one. The local version writes settings to the registry and the database to %UserProfile% whereas the portable version is portable and uses its own folder.
And btw, 2.1.0 is around the corner. Smile

You've only had 1 tester respond and Chris pointed out some packaging errors, so I'd say it could use more testers and an update to fix the issues. As most folks here speak English, I'd say that's the reason.

Well,

no news is good news.
Tipp10 Portable is in testing for over 2 years. The base app is very popular and has over 1 million downloads (not bad for german only, huh?).
Why should I do an update which adds 2 *.png and modifies the appinfo.ini? No change to the launcher is required. Sorry, but I don't waste my (and Patricks) time and bandwith that way.
Particulary with regard to 2.1.0 final this month.

report

all was clean here (Win XPSP3, limited)- I just never posted it.

Id say its better to wait for the next version with an update.
