John knows...

He gets notified so there is no need to start a thread.

YES

The update is very important

Pidgin:
* Insert Horizontal Rules and Strikethrough text from toolbar.
* Option to show protocol icons in the buddy list, from the
Buddies > Show menu. (Justin Heiner)
* Ability to build with native, non-X11 GTK+ on OSX. (Anders
Hasselqvist)
* Remember the 'Enable Sounds' setting for a conversation.
* Right-clicking the empty space in the formatting toolbar
allows you to toggle back to the old "ungrouped" version.
* Protocols supporting account registration via Pidgin now show
a descriptive checkbox instead of a vague "Register" button.
* Fixed a bug where a tab would be shown on single conversations
when tabs were disabled.

Is there any news on this release yet? It's been quite a while since 2.2 came out.

I know you meant no harm.

90% of the portable apps here are developed or adapted by John Haller. I know MarkoLM helps with OpenOffice some, Steve manages Toucan (his own app). There are others that help with testing and such.

Some are simple to test, update and package, others require much more extensive work.

PLEASE. Nagging, bugging, reminding, asking for updates takes up valuable time when it comes to development. John not only maintains the apps, but does most of the moderating of the forums, which means he reads almost every post. Frivolous posts take up time.

Well actually,

Apart from all the other things he has to do, he's got a huge list of apps to update because open source releases just that much quicker than a propitiatory product. There's, KompoZer, FileZilla, Firefox, Pidgin, WinSCP, KeePass, Eraser, OpenOffice.org and maybe some others. So as you can see, there's a lot to manager since launchers usually need to be updated or modified with each release as well.

Bigger Update

Actually, there are other things afoot. Installer and platform related... I didn't want to do a release this week and then a new release next week for the same base apps.

You'll start seeing some of it tomorrow.

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

Don't leave us hanging Wink

Anyway, how come I don't know about this? Blum
I want to release WinMerge Portable next week with it. It's all finished. WinBoard might be good too and I've got R'n'D PR ready to go tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads up,

Thanks for the heads up, Tom. I installed the full version of Pidgin 2.2.0 on my desktop PC last night and it looks pretty sweet.

And thanks to the PortableApps guys for the original port(s). I'm very much looking forward to the portable version of 2.2.0. The other portable ports on the Web are a bit too scary and/or manual for me.
