There was a post back in 2015 mentioning that a SysInternals Suite was about to be added.
What happen to that?

Indeed it has been added and, after a while, I changed my idea and melted it into the main suite.

It was senseless having two separate suites when the search filters had become so powerful. Try to add a custom filter called ":pub sysinternals" and you will have the Sysinternals suite with no other programs in the grid.


The right question instead should be: why the hell the NirSoft suite is still separated if the filters are so powerful?
Well nobody has asked it yet so it remains a mystery...

I prefer the separate suites for things that can modify the Registry, the boot sector, format or re-partition drives, do DoD erasing, run surface tests....

(i.e. a completely separate toolbox for those things I consider to be a bigass hammer)

But I assume after adding a package from any suite; will be added to the same SyMenu as everything else.
...oh well...

I studied a project that allows a user to create and publish its own suite from a different host than ugmfree.

I called it "the private suite extension".
This private suite thing is naturally a themed suite: a user publishes graphical tools, another system tools, one other school tools, and so on

The private suite can even be protected with credentials if the owner wants to distribute it only to certain other users. Is anyone thinking about a paid subscription?

In your case you could create your themed suite using already available SPS, publishing it from your website/blog/whatever, and being completely independent from the official SyMenu suite.
Nice uh!

It's a really complex project and I'm not actively working on it but who knows what will happen in the future...

Today SyMenu only supports custom local suites along with its own suite and NirSoft suite (https://www.ugmfree.it/SyMenuManual.aspx#CustomSuites).

The custom local suite works like the future private suite extension but it can't be published and distributed automatically. You can create your SPS collection and distribute it manually... indeed it's not a great way to publish something.

Yes when a program is added from any suite, it's included in the same old boring SyMenu. It's on you to create logical separation through the folders or different SyMenu.
