CornHolio the Gringo on 2017-07-14 19:52

Always wanted to use this PIM because it has E-Mail integrated.
But the E-Mail function lacks too many obvious functions, like
blocking external web-content.

PAFuser on 2018-03-24 13:06

Starts with an upgrade ad every other start, does anyone know how to disable? Must click skip to go to program.

Version 4.5.2 available.

smaragdus on 2015-09-05 03:36

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

rbon on 2018-09-22 16:46

Starting from version 8.0 Tor project builds both version of TorBrowser: 32 bit and 64 bit.
- TorBrowser page: https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html
- TorBrowser repository: https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/8.0.1/
So You can add on description the link for download 64 bit version 'torbrowser-install-win64-8.0.1_en-US.exe'

WinSCP 5.5.5 (5.5.5 Build 4605) has been just released.

webfork on 2017-10-12 21:03

I've been a huge FileZilla fan since it came out back in 2001, but got a chance to test it today and WinSCP is amazing. I was able to resolve an issue with WebDAV via that program that no other program seemed capable of.

Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

refack on 2017-04-22 14:53

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Midas on 2017-07-04 10:04

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

freakazoid: is there an advantage to using the portable version? I couldn't find anything on the site explaining it and the default program is natively portable.

freakazoid on 2012-06-02 20:22

webfork: Because it's their preferred portable build. Not everyone will need the full package. The lite / portable build should be sufficient for people building a website for testing locally and on the go.

olliebean on 2018-10-19 14:51

Just for clarification, is the full version portable? Because the only version labelled "portable" at the download link appears to be the lite version, without FTP or Mail.
