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.

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

Sorry, sl23, no insight on that, since I'm not a user of either SyMenu or PAF portables -- I prefer to roll my own... :)

Notwithstanding, if still interested, check the following forum topic: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21891 ...

TP109 on 2016-04-16 12:34

The download page shows 2.5.1.0 as the freeware version, 3.0.0.0 appears to be the payware version.

Thanks for the nice tip.

@Midas
Not true, Kitty (0.65.0.0 plain vanilla, md5: 4cce0b4f7670492fe06fcb9b673de8d7) + kitty.ini (with savemode=dir) It's not portable, It writes this:
c:\Users\AppData\Roaming\KiTTY\
c:\Users\Application Data\KiTTY\

Midas on 2015-11-15 20:39

@siegfried: I confirm your findings, even after adding a "configdir=" key with a relative path.

I'm not sure the program isn't portable like that, but it sure isn't stealth. In my defense, the method I mentioned was working in prior versions (see above). I posted the issue in KiTTY's forum: http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=forum&id=0653 ... :(

BTW, this update (and the lack of changelog thereof) is probably caused by a version and code synch with PuTTY, which was prompted by a newly found vulnerability patch:

"2015-11-07 PuTTY 0.66 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
PuTTY 0.66, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.65 and before: vuln-ech-overflow."

Website still down, linking to Softpedia.

Similarities with Lupas Rename are obvious. And this is good. But the website has been down for too long. And that's bad.

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.

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'
