New in 14.2

This release adds support for dual download live installers to the app store and updater for live installation of dual-mode 32+64-bit apps, adds support for update-only releases, and updates to the latest version of 7-Zip for backup and restore. Support for hiding 'portable' in app names has also been improved and enabled by default.

 

New in 14.1

This minor update to 14.0 updates the bundled 7-Zip components of backup and restore to address a recent security issue in 7-Zip. It also updates Simplified Chinese and Slovenian language support.

 

New in 14.0

This version adds a new 64-bit mode to the backup and restore function for improved performance on modern PCs. A new automatic method for closing system tray apps - which have always been a bit pesky - like Ditto and PNotes has been added. Support for more system tray apps as well as the ability for apps to advertise methods of closing to the platform is in the works, too. For users who like using the scrollbar, full page scrolling support has been added by clicking in an empty area. Fixes for ejection on some Windows XP machines and conflicts between the What's New and autorun.inf change notifications are included, too. Updates for multiple languages have been made to make the platform easier to use by all as well. The complete set of changes is available in the PortableApps.com Platform Changelog.

14.4.3 Quick Fix

A quick fix to 14.4.2 has been posted to correct a build error making the 64-bit version of 7-Zip the default. This prevents the updater/app store and backup/restore from operating on 32-bit OSes. If you're on a 32-bit OS and already updated to 14.4.2, you can manually download the 14.4.3 update to fix the issue. Just be sure to install to the directory containing Start.exe (not one of the sub-directories like the PortableApps or PortableApps.com directories) if the installer can't automatically detect your existing install.
