New Release: 3.0.0 Beta 1
Good afternoon everyone,

Today I have something quite exciting ready for all the beta testers.

The latest beta contains a lot of changes, including a brand new modern GUI,
as well as a new local cache feature to help speed up thumbnailing in various ways.

Honestly there are too many changes for me to list, so instead I will just add the highlights
to this post and then follow up by posting sections from the updated Readme file, to give some
more insight on how to use some of the new features.

Some old features have still yet to be re-added to the new GUI, but they will be soon enough.

Enjoy the new release! ;)

Absolutely beautiful redesign!

Thank you so much for your continued work on Icaros. It is severely under appreciated.
I love this. It's absolutely beautiful. It was different than I was expecting, but definitely no complaints. Your work is much appreciated!
Thumbs Up 
I  love this, especially thumbnail chache.

windows also have thumbnail cache. does this disable/remove it?
Does icaros remove thumbnails of deleted files from cache?
Zulithe, djb247365, cengizhan,

Thank you all so much for the positive feedback. It really means a lot to me!
Without it, I can't help but feel like I'm just developing Icaros for myself, which isn't always the best motivation. :)
So it is really appreciated!


The internal (Icaros) cache doesn't replace the Windows Thumbnail Cache, but works more like a backup,
so if the Windows Cache suddenly loses one or more thumbnails which the user didn't want to lose,
then the Icaros Cache kicks in and regenerates these thumbnails instantly.

Using the 'Rebuild Cache' button allows you to 'clean up' the Icaros Cache, but be careful using it if you have 
dynamic caching enabled, because it may remove some of dynamically stored thumbnails due to a limitation in 
the lookup mechanism.

If you only use the indexer in IcarosConfig to add thumbnails to the internal cache then the 'Rebuild Cache' is a perfect option
to clean up unused entries from the cache.

The README file should contain more information about the new cache functionality. I will post sections from it to this thread soon. :)
