Hrm. We could really use a place to post releases of generic windows software, where it didnt get bogged down in the thread list by help requests and the like, thoughts?

Thanks for the kind words all, i appreciate it!

Awesome apps! Now let's see ppl building widgets for it too!

This could possibly fall under Aqua Related Apps >> Releases Only.

Samurize scripts can be ported like butta, like butta baby ;)

If you have a script you want ported, get permission from the samurize author, jump on the kapsules board and post the link and the permission and ill port it for you. :)

As far as Konfabulator widgets working with this, thats doubtful. Ive my reasons :)

If you have suggestions or helpful comments, I would like to encourage you to drop them at the website's forum. That'll help your friendly neighborhood developer ;) and the other users as well.

Yup. Those are Third-Party widgets, which arent shipped in the installer.

The other 5 (yeah, i know there arent many.... YET) come with the installer.

But again, I dont always have time to check these forums, such questions would be great in an email to me or on the site's forums :)

looks great so far. thank you for this andrew...very helpful indeed. I would suggest if you do have time to check these forums...I'm sure a lot of support could be had for your program as this is a popular place. who knows...down the road you may even be able to get your own forum, and lots of exposure for kapsules.

just a thought. :)
