[Geany-Devel] Geany Portable

Hi All,

I was working on some changes to Geany that may affect "Geany Portable" 
so I figured I'd have a look at the changes it makes to Geany to see how 
it handles binary relocation, but I can't seem to find the source 

The link on PortableApps.com[0] seems to indicate that 1.24.1 is 
available but when I check the sources on SourceForge, it only has 0.20 
code (and it's not clear if it includes the changes or is just upstream 
source). I'm pretty sure Geany's source code would have to be modified 
in order to allow it to be "portable", since the location to the Glade 
file is fixed at compile-time, which happens to be tightly related to 
what I was curious about.

The website GeanyPortable.org linked on PortableApps.com seems to 
redirect somewhere else now (judging by the pictures, I can't read the 
language it's in).

Is the person(s) who release GeanyPortable on this mailing list, and if 
so, would you mind providing me a copy of the modified source code so 
that I could review it to make sure we don't further break "portable" Geany?
