Nice to know those graphics are of use :).

Out of curiosity, have you any plan to try the other icons (for scripted wizard and file associations)?

Glad you approve :). It really belongs there, IMHO.

You also have alternate resources for the scripted wizard and source file icons? I only found the application and project file icon in the thread I link to on the top of this one. That is where I downloaded the source files from. Otherwise, I will try to reproduce the wizard banners (and other missed icons) with your new logo.

Next, on my list of big changes, are replicating the C::B installer using WiX instead of NSIS (it should be a bit more robust, and allow interesting things like maintenance mode) and actually getting a stable (not crashing) build using wxWidgets 2.9.3. :)

Please don't, you can achieve "maintenance mode" with NSIS, too using either checksums or DLL version checking. However, I am afraid usually it will be of no use. What's would be the real benefit?

See the first post in thread for links; the one I think you want is graphics.7z (edit: be warned that I made several of the earlier sets before realizing their format was incompatible with XP computers).

That is where I downloaded the source files from. Otherwise, I will try to reproduce the wizard banners (and other missed icons) with your new logo.
By source I mean *.blend's and *.psd's (some, but not all, of which I have uploaded already).
I only altered some of the wizard banners, if you have time you could work on replacing more (I am somewhat busy at the moment).

If you do, these files may be of use.

The unofficial installer has been updated to revision 7766 this morning. :) Be warned that the CC plugin is currently slightly unstable (rev. 7766 includes a fix for a hang, though). I added a few more graphical changes to further integrate Alpha icons in Code::Blocks, and this time included it in project wizard banners.

Installer updated to revision 7789. :)

Is there any chance to make this thread a sticky, so that I don't need to pollute it with bump posts to bring it back to the top of the list?

Done.

Edit: BTW: If you want to, you can integrate this:

...too for testing. ;-)

Considering that some people have trouble fetching the installer from GoogleCode, I'm looking for people who would like to mirror the unofficial C::B installer. Please PM me if you can do this.
P.S.: The latest update (revision 8043) to the unofficial installer includes the latest CC bug fixes, and a very cool patch that makes typing strings that much easier. Check it out in the first post. :)

Thank you.  I feel rather special to have multiple items of my own involved in this installer :).  I was wondering if you could (in the first post) list me under one username (Alpha == alpha0010)?

Updated the top post. In fact, I will also add credits to the author of each extra plugin as well as soon as I get a bit of time. :)

Thanks.

By the way, while exploring the new installer, I found it appears that the Editor Tweaks plugin and the CMake lexer are unavailable.  Were these perhaps lost during packaging?
