I noticed that, while being a GNUstep app(*), OOlite lacks the application icon, thus lacking some nice features :). Could we expect to find it ?

(*) Elite can loose the X window and do not die... I had it happening with the renegades chopping my rainbow tie fighter while I was unable to defend it :( :(... An application icon could remember you that the app is still running.

Hi & sorry for the delay. I can confirm that oolite v1.73 does have its own application icon on both linux & windows now (it always had one on the mac) As a bonus, you'll also get a little splash screen as the program's loading... not quite sure how you'd lose the x window and still have Oolite running as process, though!

If a plaster cast did not forced me to be left handed, I will have done the steps to compile it on my box.

About the program losing the window but remaining alive it is natural GNU/NeXTstep behavior, and Mac OS X shows this too: while in X11 (and Windows) an application is shutdown when the last window is closed, with these nextish systems you must either use the quit menu command or use the kill command in the application icon menu, last chance when there are no more windows for the application...
