now 1.1.1 is out

It turns out that the preview bug was a syntom of a bug that didn't display xpm's correctly. This should now be fixed.

Now, on to 1.2 -- whatever that may be.

1.1 is out

I've released 1.1 -- my first release as a maintainer. Not much has changed -- the biggest difference is better icon support.

There seems to be a problem with preview -- icons on the Toolbar don't appear. I can't figure out why -- but I released this because it's been too long (most of the changes I put in when I first took over) so I released what I had anyway.

IceMe -- under new management

Hello, I'm Mike Hostetler. I had a few ideas of where to take IceMe, and asked Dirk if he would be interested in passing the reins over to me. And he did quite willingly.

Things that will be added, some sooner than others:
* check for changes to any of the three menus and ask on quit without save
* use Distutils for package management
* create Preferences editor
* have IceMe find other icons besides *_16x16.xpm and mini/*.xpm files... read more
