This release has been outdated by an updated release:
PortableApps.com Platform 1.1 Beta 4
I've posted a package of Portable Apps Menu 1.0.2 Beta 3. I'm calling it a pre-release until I can get some folks to verify that it introduces no new bugs over the 1.0.2 Beta 2 release.
New in this version:
GPL Issue Resolved - The GPL issues mentioned before around certain icons have been resolved by moving those icons outside of the compiled binary. (GPLed code can't be combined with Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike licensed objects, but it can be distributed alongside them).
Initial Theming Bits Added - The precursors of the theming engine have been added. This will allow folks interested in trying out the theming abilities to start working on things. Keep in mind that the theme file format and structure hasn't been finalized yet. I've put together an example theme so you can see how it works. Just download the file ThemeExample.zip and extract it to the PortableAppsMenu\App\DefaultData\Theme directory (after installing this new Menu, of course... and backing up your original files). It's just a quick example of what will be possible... I went with a basic black for the folks that may want to use it with Vista or a dark Windows theme (like me). Here's a screenshot of the theme in action.
Initial Localization Bits Added - I added some quick code to show what will be possible with the localization system I'd mentioned earlier, too. By placing a test.locale file in the same directory as PortableAppsMenu.exe, you can get a feel for how the locale system will work. I've posted two examples to get people started, too: test.english-us.locale (handy for starting a new localization to contribute to the project), test.swedish.locale (contributed by Johan, our Swedish translation lead). Just save them to the same directory as PortableAppsMenu.exe and rename them to test.locale. Here's a screenshot of the Swedish locale file in action.
Download Portable Apps Menu 1.0.2 Beta 3 (Pre-Release 2) and extract the files to your existing PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu directory to try it out
Download Portable Apps Menu 1.0.2 Beta 3 (Pre-Release 2) Source - This is a Borland Delphi 2006 Project fileset. It should contain all the necessary files to compile and run. If any Delphi folks could verify this, it would be appreciated.
That's it for now. This should get us back on track to releasing menu updates monthly (at a minimum) and be able to start adding some of the most popular feature requests.
UPDATE - Pre-Release 2 fixes the issue with the menu missing your last app.
