Non transparent icon in Alt-Tab (Windows)

Hi.

Any idea why even though the new Irida icon has transparent background
the one in the Alt-Tab window on my machine has a white background and
so does the one in the IJ title bar?

My guess is that they are 2 diffent icons and that JetBrains just didn't
update one of them.

Is that intended / a cosmetic bug?

Unfortunately, that's intended. As the matter of fact Alt-Tabbing icon and
frame icon are the one stretched/sketched. We can't provide two sizes via
Java API (or can we?). Transparent icon just doesn't stretch good enough.

No, the Java API is lacking in this regard.

Thanks for the explanation.

Sometimes these little Java shortcomings amaze me :)
