Bitvise SSH Client (formerly Tunnelier) is a fast, secure FTP and terminal client with a variety of "tunnel" options to create secure connections, similar to a VPN. The program can forward Windows file shares over SSH, an FTP-to-SFTP protocol bridge, port forwarding and more. See forum discussion for adding secure FTP to existing portable software.

Includes support for single-click remote desktop forwarding for graphical server access, vt100, strong auto-reconnect and a scriptable console-mode SFTP client. Integrated SOCKS and HTTP proxy are available for dynamic forwarding. Security measures include wide encryption protocol support including public key exchange and optional integrated compression. Supports profiles and optional encryption of local passwords.

Functional in 64-bit.

Sorry, but i can't find version 6.03 on the website. It's still 4.60

FYI, Tunnelier has been renamed Bitvise SSH Client and the current third party PAF repack is v4.60 Rev 2.0 (see http://tp.vbap.com.au/download). The current upstream Bitvise SSH Client is v6.03 (changelog at http://www.bitvise.com/ssh-client-version-history). Both still freeware...

I used BitComet as the first torrent client back in the ol days.
Then uTorrent arrived, and I stuck with it for the low resource usage.

@billon
The download links for BitComet version 1.50 - "404 Not Found" (both for the archive and the installer).

Midas on 2018-05-17 14:09

Confirmed just now: https://www.bitcomet.com/en/archive/ shows links for both packages but all you get is an error for v1.50. Alternative download locations pointed to by the homepage don't work either.

The "No VLC" and "Full" versions differ significantly in size:
"No VLC"- 27.0 MB (28,334,764 bytes) uncompressed
"Full"- 109 MB (115,235,866 bytes) uncompressed

Unless they have very specific needs, most 'portablists' should go with the "No VLC" version -- and get portable VLC if they need it...

I figured out how to uninstall the user-chosen (custom) languages but it takes a little work.
1: Open PSPad.ini (if you opened it with PSPad or if PSPad is running, save it as something else).
2: Delete the UserHighLighterName# value / data pair where the language is listed (the crosshatch is either null or a number between 1 and 4).
3: Delete the language key and all value / data pairs appertaining to it.
4: If PSPad is running, close it - then replace the PSPad.ini file with your changes. Voila! Your user-selected language slot is ready for another language!
I have posted a request to add a mechanism to do this automatically on the PSPad forum which is very active and the author of the software posts often - not what you'd expect from "dead" software.
BTW: Be cautious about using the installer - it seems to have had some problems. Use the zip file instead and unpack the files to a folder of your choice.

If it's ok, I'd just like to make a few more comments:
Viniciusban writes that PSPad has no comment-out tool. I don't know if that was true when he posted, but it has one now:
Format menu / Add/Remove Comment.

Webfork writes that it has trouble handling Very Large Files (VLF). In my experience, there are only a very few editors that can handle VLFs without absorbing all available RAM and none of them (with the possible exception of UltraEdit) is as full-featured as PSPad IMHO. If I must view / edit a VLF, I always use HiEditor from WinASM.net as it is made specifically to work on VLFs without hosing the computer. Unfortunately, it isn't offered on PortableFreeware.com but it is completely portable, writes all settings to an INI file and is very fast.

Tom mentions that the "stable" version is 4.5.4. Currently it is 4.5.6 and was uploaded about 11 months ago. Beta version, available from the forum and updated August 2012, is very stable - if the latest version is wanted, grab it from there.

PSPad has its problems but they all do - that's why there isn't just a single text editor that everybody uses. While Notepad++ is (undeniably) the most popular text editor for programmers, I find its interface somewhat obscure and its learning curve a bit too steep to make it useful to me. PSPad's interface is much cleaner and simpler and, if I don't use it for months at a time, I can come back to it without worrying about relearning anything - that's why PSPad is my text editor of choice.

I wanted a paf version of PSPad and I tried the online installer version of @prapper which unfortunately does not work.
So in the discussion https://portableapps.com/comment/242253#comment-242253 I left a note (# 22).
Be careful: when you extract the installer you have to delete the folders:
- $ PLUGINSDIR
- 7zTemp
and copy the rest into .\PSPadPortable.
Then update to the latest portable version which must be unpacked in .\PSPadPortable\App\PSPad\
