That sounds like a good compromise. I will make sure this is added to the list.

As a rule we don't try to predict future product release dates. All I can say is that there are several projects under development for 2010 - including a brand new NeoBook plug-in.

I have noticed that the quality of the icon degrades when compiled in NB 5.7.1 compared to NB 5.6. This is noticeable to me in the small icon size that appears on the task bar. The larger views seem to be okay, but as soon as I recompile something under 5.7 it gets all ragged on the edges in the small view. I am only supplying the old 32x32 format icons.

You should supply a multi-resolution icon containing at least a 32x32 and a 16x16 icon. Otherwise, NeoBook's compiler will create a 16x16 for you. Depending on the source icon, this may or may not be acceptable.

Sounds reasonable, but I haven't had a new icon editor in nearly a decade. Can anyone recommend preferably a freeware icon editor that is up to date?

Thanks.

Thanks, but that doesn't seem to be an icon editor. I have a program that does what the above does, but it doesn't save .ICO files.

There are dedicated icon editors out there by the gozillions, but most are junk. I'm looking for a recommendation on one of the up-to-date ones that is still freeware.

From the File Formats (near the bottom)

"The file format support ranges from the common likes of JPEG (JFIF), GIF, PNG, TIFF to special use formats such as the multi-resolution and multi-color-depth Windows icon files. The architecture allows to extend GIMP's format capabilities with a plug-in. You can find some rare format support in the GIMP plugin registry."

good luck !

Thanks, but again, that's not an icon editor. I am not looking for a full graphics program. I already have one

Hi,

Take a look at SibCode Free Icon Editor. And, if you want to get a shareware program, try MicroAngelo Icon Editors programs. The first one is free, apparently only show a "nag screen" when start. The second one is not free, but, maybe more complete, and not to much expensive, in my opinion.

Thanks, I'll check those out. MicroAngelo was the one I had a decade ago. It has been long since lost to system changes, crashes, etc.
