Icaros Desktop 2.2.3 public release

A new update to Icaros Desktop is now available for download. It includes many updates to 3rd party applications and the new picture datatypes (mostly vector and old-age bitmap formats) which were missing on AROS. We have fixed many bugs in hosted mode and polished the distribution here and there. As usual, the updated version will be available to patrons only for a while, then it will be publicly released. Scroll down the page to find what's new in this release.
