The Windows erlang application icon looks a little blocky, especially when
you have the text size turned up, so I added some higher resolution images.

I grabbed the image from http://www.erlang.org/doc/ , and used
paint.netand icofx to add true color 256x256, 48x48, and 32x32 images
to the icon.

I implanted this icon into werl.exe using icofx; I am not prepared to
figure out compiling Erlang on Windows.  See attached comparison of old and

It is on the fuzzy side and could use some hand-crafting from an actual
artist, but I find this one less jarring than the old one.

Patch below...


git fetch git://github.com/goertzenator/otp.git win_icon
