IDEA 13.1 Logo Follow
Just downloaded the 13.1 EAP release.
On first look, it seems to me the logo has a vague resemblance to the Darwin Fish symbol, a parody of the ichthys symbol as shown below. (However, it's not completely clear to me if the appendages are legs or flippers.)
Is the resemblance of the IDEA 13.1 logo and the Darwin Fish symbol intentional, accidental, or does the resemblance just lie in the eye of the beholder?

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
There's indeed vague resemblance but it was not our intention to make a parody of the Ichthys symbol. However since more than a single person has found resemblance and the last thing we're looking for is offend anyone, we'll try to avoid using this graphics in future.
Bollocks to political correctness!
But out of curiousity, can you share what it was meant to symbolise?
Nothing more than a Latimeria AFAIK
Mmm... looks tasty. :-)
Oh well, I thought it was something deeper than a reference to a living fossil. Shows that most of us tend to look for hidden meanings even if there were none intended or implied :)
