  • What is this? - this was a project dedicated to building an up-to-date collection of great, free portable software for easy installation and use.
  • What's in it? - list of included freeware
  • v. 1.3 beta - note that this release is over a year old and contains very out-of-date software. I haven't worked out how to solve licensing issues. Download

Flight delays due to lack of fuel

Because of troubles over at portablefreeware with Dreamhost in the past few weeks and PortableApps focus on an Installer platform rather than new or updated software, there haven't been a great deal of accepted updates by the community to add to the next Kitchen Sink collection. As a result, I'm going to change the release schedule to every 4 months and hopefully there will be more of a reason to post. Need more time to find a BitTorrent distribution system anyhow.

In the meantime, I'll be focusing on my portablefreewarereviews site, which will hopefully help me find new and better software to throw in.

Update: Of course right after I write this, both sites put out updates. Sigh.

Portable platform is here

Great news: Portableapps Installer just came out, which allows other developers to modify their own applications for PortableApps. This is great because its basically creating a platform for portable software that makes it easy for other developers to get on board and hand their software to users without their users needing to be tech savvy. Hopefully this will pull more developers towards making portable software and this will only increase the size of Kitchen Sink.

Great job, PortableApps.

Software addition: Testdisk

After a number of stellar reviews, I'll be including this in my next release. Probably Photorec too.
