And I don't see where I am aggressive at all. But I am very well aware of many people not being able to read the real content of a written message. They prefer to interpret the content as mean as possible instead of remembering that this is an international forum. So you do not only see lots of different persionalities, but also lots of cultural and educational differences.

Moderators do not delete contents that contain information that is interesting for other people. As you can read in various posts all kind of criticism including XnView is accepted and kept. Having and allowing different opinions is actually quite important.

We moderators expect a friendly tone in the forum. But we do edit and/or delete things that we consider as aggressive and/or provoking. So if someone writes something in that direction or tone he/she must not be surprised if that this is deleted. Please see the Rules & Guidelines.

Now, please all return to an objective and friendly discussion. If you want to further discuss personal or moderator issues, please contact me or one of the other moderators via personal mail.>

:) Hello !

• The 1.5 version of GFIE Pro is available, SAME URL.
• Main additions :

- *.ANI support, with animated preview,

- Maximal file-size enhanced for file-types else than *.ICO¦*.CUR¦*.ANI
(1024×1024 pixels guaranteed, more at your own risks).

• Many graphic (and else) bugs fixed…

• Now, it can be used for retouchs with reasonable-sized images, not only as an icon editor.

… and we have a wish-list @ the Author's for the next version ! ;)

IcoFX 2.0.1 is no longer freeware. :?

Well, I guess you can't really blame the guy for going shareware. It's still a good piece of software, just not worth the price. Especially when you can get the Microangelo toolset cheaper, which I consider to be the best icon / cursor editor there is.
