Just playing with it now, nice work as usual. Will test with new Intel 3D soon.

Have to say the Papercuts initiative is one of those subtle gems where things just feel better, only little things but they all count and massively add to the whole.

Great work all involved.

A bug in InstallAROS prevented correct installation of Icaros Desktop 1.3.3 on drives with two partitions - aros: and work:. For this reason the files on the website have been updated with a fixed version. The new feature "AROS is now installable from twice-partitioned USB pendrives", however, has been post-poned to Icaros 1.3.4, after further testing. Sorry for the issue.

People who have already downloaded Icaros may look on for a simple workaround to the problem. People with faster, flat-rate connections, however, may prefer downloading it again.
