The Iconfactory and Panic have announced the immediate availability of CandyBar 1.5, the latest version of the popular Mac OS X system icon customization application. Version 1.5 brings support for iContainers, a new way to package and distribute icons, developed jointly by the two companies. “iContainers are, in essence, a large group of icons packaged into one handy container – a single file. As they apply to CandyBar, iContainers allow users to import and export entire CandyBar icon sets in one fell swoop.” The free update includes an all new World of Aqua system replacement iContainer from Dave Brasgalla, an updated and expanded Smoothicon iContainer from Corey Marion, as well as full qualification for use with the upcoming Mac OS X 10.2.4 update, and more. CandyBar sells for US$12.95.
