There is a  1.0 available for Hollywood 9, which supports several icon formats:

Code business is back. In 2022 Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, celebrate the 20th anniversary of Hollywood, the cross-platform multimedia application layer. To kick off the celebrations we are proud to present a brand-new plugin for Hollywood: Iconic. Iconic is the ultimate icon loader and saver plugin for Hollywood. It will make all your icon dreams come true because it can load and save icons in pretty much all of the most common icon formats. The following formats are currently supported:

- AmigaOS 1.x style icons
- AmigaOS 2.x/3.x style icons
- AmigaOS 3.5/3.9 icons (aka GlowIcons)
- AmigaOS 4.x icons
- macOS icons (*.icns format)
- MagicWB icons
- MorphOS/PowerIcons icons (PNG)
- NewIcons
- Windows icons (*.ico format)

Of course, Iconic also supports loading and saving of the metadata found in the Amiga icon formats like tooltypes, icon position, drawer view mode, icon type and so on. Thanks to Hollywood 9's new support for palette images it is also possible to load the icon palette, set a transparent pen and access the raw palette pens used in the icon image data. Of course, Iconic doesn't only support palette-based icon images but also icons that contain true colour images with alpha channel. Several of the icon formats listed above also support palette and true colour images within the same icon file and several different icon sizes within the same icon file. All of this is supported by Iconic as well!

This is why Iconic is the ultimate icon plugin for Hollywood and a must-have for every Hollywood user. The plugin is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS (x86), Linux (arm, ppc, x86, x64), macOS (ppc, x86, x64), Windows (x86, x64), Android and iOS are provided. Note that Hollywood 9 is strictly required by Iconic.
