Has Logos also changed the desktop icon colors from blue/white to white/blue? Smile

Downloaded and installed without a hitch (Windows 7).  I notice the splash screen has been updated.   Just waiting for indexing to complete...

Weird. New icon on taskbar:

but it changes to the old icon when it's running.

I think the new one looks cluttered.  But I'm not going to sell my software because of that.

Ok.  Thanks Todd I didn't notice the new icon.   Must say it doesn't catch my eye as pleasing, but I get they want to differentiate Logos 4 & Logos 5.

Yes, I've just noticed that also. Within the program itself, the icon is the same as before. I do think that there should be some distinction between L4 and L5 icons. Software has traditionally updated the icons with new major releases.

I've never seen any of the 'new' icons - nor the Splash Screen.

The icon in my dock is quite stylish though...

The new icon is pretty ugly at small sizes (e.g. taskbar, start menu). I much prefer the old one. It they want a new look, it would be better to just remove the background.

Perhaps just reversing the colors of the old icon. thats pretty much what they have done, with the exception of the blue border. I do thing that the icon for L5 should be different than L4.

Does the icon really need to be different from the L4 one? It's not like a user would have both installed under the same account, since that doesn't appear feasible anyway.

Thankfully, we Mac users do not have ugly icons Geeked

The L5 icons appears to be slightly darker than the L4 one did. Don't change it—I like this one—Libronix was ugly.

I believe so. Even if it is a small difference. It differentiates (without opening the program) which Logos is loaded on a computer/user account. All in all, it does not make a bit of difference in functionality one way or another. It just follow an industry standard (written or not) of software upgrades. Software companies generally change the icons somewhat when they release a major upgrade.

That's the small change. Smile

And, generally, that's all that is needed. I'm on a PC and can't see that one, but if they did the same here (on the PC), that would be good also.

Bug Fixes on Mac

  • Startup
    • Fixed bug which caused “Start now” button to be truncated in the synchronizing message window in Spanish UI.

I get this in the English UI in L5 SR-4. I'm not running beta, but saw that in the release notes and didnt know where else to post.

Splash screen during initial launch looks a bit different:

It's garish (adjective, obtrusively bright and showy.)

I'm wondering about the lack of functionality - has there been a change to the initial Sync, or have Logos just prevented users from interrupting it?

The splash screen has too much free space above and below the the title.  I preferred the shape of the previous splash screen.
