Builds a pre-formatted PortableApps.com beta test thread.
I created this primarily as an offline beta test thread editor so I don’t have to check the clock when I go to post a new development test (in case it is forum maintenance time – which seems to be when I usually want to post something). If others also use it I am hoping it may help normalize the data that is posted as a beta test thread, and currently mirrors the existing forum template for beta tests quite closely, apart from the addition of a source link for open source releases. It also emulates the forum’s styling (eg. multiple new lines will be replaced by a maximum of two new lines).
Please note that the built-in update check will not work right now because the version DB file that it looks for does not currently exist due to the forced transition from the original site to this one. I hope to do something about this soon.
