After so many months of development, Icaros Desktop 2.2 is now available for download. The new release expands the ability to run the distribution in hosted mode (introduced with last Xmas Preview), allowing Linux and Windows users to run their applications - with no limitations - from the AROS shell and graphic interface. The new "HostBridge" technology can also open files and even set Linux/Windows programs as default tools for AROS projects. But that's not the only news about Icaros 2.2. The most popular AROS distribution for PC has now a brand new look, with new decoration theme, new desktop and new Magellan toolbars; it also includes new programs (like Slarti and ZunePaint), and brings all included software to the latest release.

As usual, I am the one that should thank everyone else, instead: I just put things together, but coders and developers who make those things deserve all the glory.

Just to name some: O1i fixed janusd and ported icoutils to AROS, Yannick made that wonderful image requester when I asked him, Neil and others always answered to my questions here when I encountered some difficulties, mike is making some progresses in icon management... and I may continue. Thank you all, really.
