K-Meleon Portable 1.5.4 Development Test 1

K-Meleon Portable 1.5.4 Development Test 1
Application: K-MeleonCategory: InternetDescription: K-Meleon is an extremely fast, customizable, lightweight web browser for the Win32 (Windows) platform based on the Gecko layout engine (the rendering engine of Mozilla).

Download K-Meleon Portable 1.5.4 Development Test 1 (English) [6.3MB download / 18.7MB installed]
(MD5: a3dc7fd950637da82b4863545aff8c97)

This PAF is based off my 1.5.3 Dev 1 update to Travis Carrico's original work on the 1.5_Development_Test_1 release. The most current Ad-Block plugin for K-Meleon is included as a PAF plugin option.

Languages supported from the K-Meleon official locales package:

  • English - tested
  • French - tested
  • German - tested
  • Polish - should be available but I could not test as I do not have this codepage installed on my test systems
  • Russian - should be available but I could not test as I do not have this codepage installed on my test systems
  • Spanish - tested

The specific locale is installed based on the language you select during the PAF installation itself.

Testing Notes:

I have tested this release on the following platforms...

  • Windows XP SP3 32bit
  • Windows Server 2003 SP2 32bit
  • Windows 7 32bit
  • Windows Server 2008 64bit

I found the release to install and run just fine in the platforms listed above. I do NOT test on Vista and I never will - I leave that for others to try.

The issues with Vista/Win7/Win2008 on the 1.5.3 dev test were partially due to MSVC DLLs that needed to be packaged for the newer platforms and K-Meleon itself. According to the 1.5.4 K-Meleon release notes, this update helps address some of those issues of running on the newer Windows platforms.

Release Notes:

1.5.4 Development Test 1 (2010-03-12)

  • K-Meleon distribution updated to 1.5.4 final
  • updated PAF configuration files to the 1.0 spec
  • PAF installer updated to 1.03
  • compiled against NSIS 2.46

1.5.3 Development Test 1 (2009-07-26)

  • K-Meleon distribution updated to 1.5.3 final
  • AdBlockPlus plugin updated to 1.0.2 with multilingual support (still handled as a multi-installer option)
  • PAF installer updated to 0.91.7
  • compiled against NSIS 2.45
  • added eula.txt per Mozilla license requirements (copy of the mpl.txt file)
  • added in language pack support via the new PAF multilanguage functions

Tried it on Win7 64bit -

Tried it on Win7 64bit - works OK. Didn't take a regshot, but otherwise no problems. I like it. It does look very clean, simple and fast! Way to go!

Please mark [Outdated] threads as such & link to new threads. ☺

Please edit the threads for old releases as [Outdated]
and add a link to a more up-to-date thread.

should be titled something like

or maybe something like

Also the link for this on the Test Releases page is [Outdated]. ~ Thanks for fixing that.

Other than that:

  • Should be updated to PAF 2.0
    • No rush
  • Works fine for me.
    • Smile

K-meleon portable 1.6.0 beta

Since 2010-12-12 there is a portable beta version of K-meleon 1.6.0. Perhaps it is easier to make this one fit to portableapps standards (apt to the launcher, update etc.)

Regards!

Dead App

K-Meleon is a dead and insecure app and should no longer be used to connect to the general internet. It's got over a year of unpatched security vulnerabilities sitting in it. With browsers, you simply have to stick with legit, regularly-updated software to ensure you stay safe.

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

It's been updated...

K-Meleon is not dead. It was updated today (or very recently) with version 74.0 Beta 4

Not Quite Running Again

If you look at the above post, K-Meleon was well and truly dead in 2012 when the comment you responded to was made. It was dead all through 2012 and 2013 (note the lack of updates from 2010-12-12 to 2014-01-16).

In January of 2014, development was restarted with a partially functional beta released. As of June, it's still in beta and no stable releases have yet been made. It also remains to be seen how well/quickly it will be updated as security releases are done in Firefox/SeaMonkey.

If K-Meleon does become a stable, regularly updated browser, it would then make sense to discuss including it here.

<sarcasm> Not Dead Yet </sarcasm>

Aw, the <sarcasm> tag doesn't work (;•þ) jk

Whether it was dead previously or not (which is was) it's being revived (so far it's only betas, but we'll see), and as a Portable App fan & tester I'd like to see a PortableApps.com version, and, would be happy with a Development Test (for the time being).

Also does anyone know why it's been version-bumped to 74(beta)?

Version 74 has been released.

Version 74 has been released. I'll be looking forward to a new Dev Test.

@Pat.Ord: Will you be releasing an update to this or is it available for someone else to pick up?

[Released]

Not sure if this DevTest was actually used when creating the official release of K-Meleon Portable 75.1, but should we mark this as [Released] as well? If so, please also add a link to https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/k-meleon-portable to the Opening Post.

Thanks again.

Not Necessary

It's not necessary to revive threads that have been untouched for 3 years (and send out email notifications to everyone subscribed) to ask for them to be tagged as Released. We don't generally tag threads like this and it's never been policy to do so.

Sorry

Seeing as the development test will not be maintained after the release becomes official, I thought it was good to point anyone who may have found the devtest's thread (either because they use/used it, or are looking for it) to the official, maintained release, and having seen so many marked as [Released] after they were released, I was under the impression that it had become policy to do so.

Sorry, My bad.

No Worries, Policy?

No worries, I know the intent was good. I'd be happy to make it policy if enough people would like to.

You want to create a proposal post and stick it in the general forum for feedback asking others about it?
