How applications are added to the menu

Hello all,

I have added few application (some of them written by me) to the PortableApps directory. Is there any way that I can control which applications show up in the menu?

For example I'm using Opera@USB. The problem is that there are a couple of exe files in the directory and the menu picks all of them up. Is there a config file that can be put in the app directory that can specify what should be obtained and what not?

Another helpful thing would be if one could configure the name of the application via same configuration file.

Thank you in advance.

No

We are all eagerly expecting these options to be added in the next version.

Not yet

John will be adding it in a up-and-coming version.
On that note, he still hasn't emailed me back Blum

I might

But on that note, please don't remind me about emails, especially if it's been only a few days. I know. I just have too many of em. Current email messages awaiting a response from me: 547 across 5 email accounts. And these are actual emails to me or contact@, not mailing lists or spam.

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

No

Its sort of "Company Policy" here that no release dates are given.
We all like surprises...;-)

RE: release date

John takes the Steve Jobs approach and says "By the way, here it is" rather than the Bill Gates approach saying "It'll be ready next week" every week.

Didn't he do that with the iPhone?

I think he was doing a conference on something and he said "oh, and by the way, here's the iPhone" Smile
