I couldn't tell what updates were made as this is in Italian but its a year between these updates so I'm assuming there's some good changes. It seems to be in line with the non-portable official Inkscape release (http://www.inkscape.org/).

"Official" Inkscape

If you open up the official site, the folks there are listing a PAF file that's identical to PA's version.

Official:
http://inkscape.org/download/?lang=en

PA:
http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_p ... e_portable

I tend to like pointing to things that the developers are pointing to because when people ask for help with something that we can't tackle here in the forums, I don't want to create unnecessary confusion. Support questions are already difficult enough. If however there's no real difference between the two programs, its obviously a non-issue.

Edit: I wrote all this before I read the comments on the official entry by Chris Morgan about his work on the PA version. Evidently this is old news.

It's an old issue but it's still unresolved as it's linking to the WinPenPack portable package instead of the portable package that Inkscape.org links to and hosts.

Inkscape (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=657) has just been updated to v0.91, but besides the ready made PortableApps.com/WinPenPack packages, precious little is know about its portability caveats. So, along with completing this here official forum topic, I'd like to profit the bump to pick any knowledgeable minds out there... :mrgreen:

Midas, I'd like to enlight you with my currently won findings based on the 0.92.2-x64-version:
The 7-Zip package from inxscape is a little pig :lol:
Registry: ...not that much, only

Code: Select all

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\inkscape.exe
AppData:
- \Local\recently-used.xbel
- \Local\fontconfig
- \Roaming\inkscape (here are all preferences, user presets etc.)

Half a year ago I tried to put the x64-version into the portableapps-package, it did not work, the x64-version seems to have a slightly different settings-behaviour...
Since the impacts on the system are moderate, a portable launcher should be no problem - but seeing now that the x64-version has no speed advantage at all, I don't feel doing it... will stick with the PortableApps-x32 :mrgreen:

edit: damn! The PortableApps-Package also lefts "AppData\Local\fontconfig" behind :shock:

I know version numbers (and 1.0 status) doesn't mean quite the same thing as it once did (Firefox 1.0 for example was a very big deal), but I'm still glad that project has come so far.
