Looking at the installer again, it looks slightly odd with a white background for the "sidebar" image. It needs a background color. Patch coming up!

graphics fix for daily and earlybird

Is there a good way to actually test this graphics in the installer?

Sorry, it looks like I lied on IRC. It appears that the try server will build installers for you, not just .zips.

No problem, I could have double checked myself (as I actually built a tryserver build earlier the same day, but focused on the mac build only...). :)
Ok, tryserver it is!

I can't visualize exactly what this fix does, but apparently on windows with some theme or color settings it's hard to see the icon when doing alt+tab or finding Daily in the windows task bar.  (not my personal experience, but I've seen someone else mention it)

This is changing the look of the Thunderbird Installer, not anything related the app icon. If someone is using a white windows theme, it may indeed be hard to find Daily (since it's all white), but that would be a separate bug (and one without a real solution).

Easy to do?  Or no longer valid?

Removed the no more existing aurora graphic.

It makes sense to use this graphic from Andreas because everywhere we use a orange background with the Daily egg.

What, where?

As far as I can see, the patch changes wizWatermark.bmp for Daily.

In Andreas's patch is still the aurora graphic. We have only the Nightly and Thunderbird branding. Aurora is gone.
