    Gavin and I are working on getting some new software up on the PowerPC Archive. We would like to open the floor to the members here to suggest software titles. The software must be free or shareware. If you are able to provide links to the software, that would greatly aid the search.

    I have a copy of Transmit for PPC, its shareware though. I have some more stuff floating around my personal archives, so I'll post some more stuff eventually.

    We are working on getting a few new programs uploaded tonight like Adium, Handbrake, and TextWrangler as well as updating older programs like Audacity.

    I love TheUnarchiver for opening every time of archive file in existence. I have a version for PowerPC which I think I got from their website. It's free and just simply works, most of the time better than OS X's Archive Utility.

    I'll have a look on my software backup drive later to see if there's anything good that you haven't got - one program that immediately comes to mind is the stage sound program QLab. Version 2.3.9 is still available for download on the developer's website, but I do have a copy of the impossible-to-find 1.3.5 which is able to run on Tiger.

    I think this is awesome and once I go through my list of apps and .dmgs, I will respond properly. Just a question though, did you guys want to keep dropbox on the website considering the loss os support for the desktop client for PPC? Unless of course that changed recently and I just didn't notice.

    It did change, back in November they switched to GoogleDrive, a move suggested by Altemose.

    And that move is working great for hosting the archive.

    I will discuss adding this to the archive with Gavin.

    As long as it is free or shareware software we can put it on the site. The Tiger version would be nice.

    We will likely keep Dropbox on the archive site as there may be guides to circumvent them pulling the plug on us PPC users. We use Google Drive for hosting the actual archive however.

    @gavinstubbs09 and I are working late to get the PowerPC Archive up to date with the latest software for existing titles as well as adding new ones. Keep the suggestions flowing!

    Heh I was just on today to get themes for my PB. Are you guys going to update the Yosemite theme, or make an El Capitan one? Btw, let me know if you need any help!

    My old partner Rocky had a thing for Windows 2000. He helped me quite a bit on the programming side of the old DyNiForm programs such as MobiText. I haven't talked to him in almost 2 years. He also helped me a bit with my first prize possession, VHD Vault before that was ruined and people tried to take my success back in 2010. Just this time instead of Windows VHDs and ISOs I run an archive for PowerPC Software. Funny how time changes things!

    When we tried looking into the theme side of things, the dock was the biggest concern. We did our best to make it look like Yosemite which essentially was the 2D dock in Leopard. Maybe at some point we can get it released, AquaDock was having issues when he was trying to make it appear as Yosemite's dock!

    Just throwing in a little side note on Gavin's thoughts. In OS X Leopard, the 3D Dock takes a .png and rotates it to draw the background. In theory, one would assume the 2D Dock would be similar however, the only portion drawn by an image is the outer light gray rim. The internal color is all drawn by computer, so there is no easy way for us to prepare a Yosemite Dock. That being said, I can easily make a script to freely change Docks for those afraid of the Terminal.
