As our tweet revealed few days ago we have several big things we want to introduce in 2013.

First of all is support of NSIS 3.0a0. Last version of NSIS (2.46) was released on December 06, 2009 so it is pretty old.
Meanwhile an Unicode NSIS was released and it contains some new features and fixes (currently 2.46.5) - but this is a kind of "unofficial" version so many users still use the old NSIS 2.46 and impatiently wait for new version to come from official authors. NSIS is very mature and stable software so using such old version is risk free, but nevertheless...

NSIS developers are working hard on new release - 3.0a0 with Windows 8 support, 64 bit support, many fixes and new features. We are making preparations for this - we want to be ready when new version is out.

We have developed new application called BitmapCutterGUI - it is already finished and you can download it here (~220 kB, later it can be found in GI installation package). BitmapCutterGUI is the same application for NSIS and Inno Setup.
With it you can create background for installer easier and it is more user friendly than command line version.

12/31/12: View of Year 2012

Year 2012 is almost gone - and it was really exciting year!

In January we introduced Third generation of our product Graphical Installer (version 3.01) with support for Inno Setup (which is totally different system than NSIS!)

Graphical Installer for Inno Setup

We have been developing this version in secret for several months (the development started in 2011) and later we also released several small updates of GI for NSIS and Inno Setup during this year to support most recent versions of these install systems.
There were countless number of new features and fixes, enhancements to API and various other things... With all these changes is now GI spread over the whole World and our customers are satisfied with it - which we really enjoy!

The second most important thing we did was the release of Visual & Installer in March - add-on for creating NSIS and Inno Setup installers directly in Microsoft Visual Studio (2005/2008/2010/2012).

After some time I decided to use my old blog (powered by Nucleus - btw great job :) and add new stuff to it.
As this blog was intended only for Cooking Witch games (which was our game development studio) now it will also contain posts related to Graphical Installer (both NSIS and Inno Setup), Visual & Installer and other our software and tools.

Also if something interesting but personal appears I will add it here...
