Release Porting Kit 4.2.29

We just now released Porting Kit 4.2.29. There are some import fixes in it which made us rush the update now then waiting a couple of weeks. There is for example an important timeout build in when a specific Winetrick file source is unavailable.  Instead of hanging for a long while, it will now choose another file location. Also a more common bug should be fixed regarding: “There is no Windows Program configured to open this type of file” should be fixed as well.

Updating may take a long while (depending on high traffic even an hour). Alternatively you can select the autoupdate feature and then all will be done in the background anyways. When you have no patience, then you download latest version from the Porting Kit Website manually :)
