Like Opera, just wish it did not updates every week. Another today, never know what is updated, security, or unimportant.

Upgraded to 60, only 1 extension icon is visible. Does anyone know how to get them back? They can not be used when invisible.

Simple solution, download new installer, install to new location, add all extensions to Opera, change settings, import bookmarks. Easy upgrade, HA!

Frontend and easier config can be found here http://dfendreloaded.sourceforge.net/

Smurf, that looks sweet, if it is portable I suggest this be added to database. (possibly as a replacement?)

There's a note:
D-Fend Reloaded may be installed in a portable operation mode (for USB-Sticks etc.).

My eyes lit up when I read that.

SYSTEM on 2011-07-17 09:39

I have updated the extraction instructions. Chris Morgan had pointed out that DOSBox is not portable if launched without any command-line switches.

Thanks Chris. :)

In my opinion, v6 is a step back (looks more "modern", but lacks versatility) compared to v4 (they are being worked on simultaneously).

smaragdus on 2015-05-29 14:46

In fact the latest version of Sleipnir 4 series is 4.4.3.4000.
I agree with joby_toss that Sleipnir 6 is modern beyond usability.

smaragdus on 2016-08-03 20:48

English page is gone, latest versions (as of 2016.08.03)- 4.5.0 & 6.2.0.
