deadwood, I don't know if it matters, but some MCC libraries are obsolete for some programs like IconEditor.

What do you mean? Are there newer versions that are on Aminet/AROS-Archives which are not included in the ISO?

@AMIGASYSTEM

Ok, keep using the Aminet versions then as a workaround. I don't know if I will find time to update them in the AROS repository. You can also ask Mazze - he has been doing that in past.

No worry deadwood it's not so important, there are few applications that use them, i just wanted to report it maybe someone could be interested.
