PortableApps.com is proud to announce the PortableApps.com Platform Version 11.0 (codename: Curiosity) stable release.
This release adds platform accessibility and keyboard navigation, an enhanced app store with better ways of finding new and updated apps, incremental platform updates (new features faster!), lots of new advanced organization options, and updates for French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil) and Slovenian locales.
Like previous releases, it has automated app updates, customizable folders (categories) in the menu, a full themeing engine with multiple chrome styles, the Portable App Directory app store for automatic download and installation of portable apps, find-as-you-type search (just type / or F3) to easily find apps in your ever-growing collection, an improved updater, more-complete translations into more languages and lots more.
And the awesomeness will just keep on coming as we've already begun working on 12.0. If you'd like to see more features and functionality keep coming, please read a personal appeal from PortableApps.com founder John T. Haller to help! The new platform release is available for immediate download as well as for purchase bundled on the World's Best Flash Drive: The PortableApps.com Companion, which is now on sale for as little as $29.95.

Existing users can automatically update by clicking Manage Apps - Check for Updates
11.0.1 Update: A quick patch release to fix an issue with the portable fonts and apps with unresponsive Windows. 11.0 users will receive a 1MB fast-install patch automatically.
This release adds platform accessibility and keyboard navigation using the arrow keys and TAB to the menu as well as an alternate screen-reader and keyboard friendly selection method to the updater and app store (via Advanced Options). Three new app store views mean you can now view the available apps by category, title, new releases and recent updates, so you'll always have the latest software right at hand. We've added advanced options so you can show installed apps in the app directory, make favorites more visible, improve categories and even create a report of all your installed software for trouble-shooting and bragging (Help - About - Apps). We've also fixed several bugs and updated translations for French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil) and Slovenian locales. Read the PortableApps.com Platform Changelog for the full list of features and fixes.
