[11:00 AM] Want To Change Your System Icons...From A Central Location?
by Staff

The good folks at Iconfactory have released a new version of their icon management utility, iControl. iControl allows users to change their icons on a system wide level, and the new version allows for users to import Kaleidoscope icons. According to Iconfactory:

This new version of iControl sports many improvements, bug fixes and features like the ability to import system icons directly from Kaleidoscope schemes, Appearance themes or resource files. Imported system icons can then be easily saved as iPacks. Working closely with each other, Greg Landweber (co-author of Kaleidoscope), and Polymorph Software have improved usability and eliminate conflicts between Kaleidoscope 2.2.3 and iControl 1.1.1. The result for the end users is greater control over the appearance of her/his desktop, windows, and icons.

iControl 1.1.1 also comes with an exclusive new iPack from Iconfactory artist, Dave Brasgalla based on his eWorld 2000 icon collection. This "ePack" sports 75 all new icons that plays off themes and styles of Apple's defunct on-line community eWorld. This iPack is an exclusive, available only with iControl.

Other new features incorporated into iControl 1.1.1 include:

  • Basic AppleScript support for greater customizable control
  • A web menu for easy access to 3rd party iPacks
  • A contextual menu item for clearing custom icons
  • Bug fixes for At Ease & OS 9 multi-users

iControl is available for US$19. You can find more information at the Iconfactory web site.
