Hello everyone! Here is VitorMM! I’m here to talk about the last Porting Kit release, which is filled with news. The last time I posted about an update was almost three months ago, with PK 2.6, so there are plenty of things to talk about.
FROM PORTING CENTER TO THE PORTING KIT
One of the main news is that we are moving all the Porting Center features to the Porting Kit slowly. Eventually, the Porting Center is going to be fully replaced by the Porting Kit. With that, features that belonged to PC will keep evolving in the same rate as PK features.
DRM CLIENTS (STEAM, ORIGIN, UPLAY AND GOG GALAXY)
We also had some problems with Steam, Origin and Uplay during that meanwhile. In case you missed that, you must have the Porting Kit 2.6.84 or superior to install a port with any of these guys. From that version on, PK should check the method to install them on our website, so DRM clients should not need any PK updates to work (for now, at least). Also, we finally managed to have out first 64Bit GOG Galaxy port, which was a great achievement :)
Due to lots of hard work, one of the focus during that transition was to keep PK stable as stable as possible, and so we did. Most of the changes in 2.6 were improvements and fixes, so the Porting Kit can give the best experience as possible.
LEGACY VERSION RELEASE
That’s what you heard! Porting Kit 2.7 have a legacy version release as well! And it comes with a great new for legacy users: with a new method developed by me, delivering the legacy version releases should be much faster now! So Porting Kit Legacy won’t be as outdated as it was before!
Now, be aware: the last Legacy release was almost one year ago. I’ve made a few tests in the Legacy version. It’s functional, however I can’t say if it’s completely stable yet. So if you see any error, or anything abnormal in Porting Kit Legacy, let we know in the forum or by mail ;)
That’s it! Thanks for reading and until next time!
