Lix icons set for uTorrent revived

Many of you guys who've been using uTorrent for years noticed all those horrible changes happened after BitTorrent inc. acquired it. They've been treating community like shit, but this time they just crossed the line and completely took down icons and skins catalog. That was a rather unpleasant surprise for me when I went there to redownload my old good Lix skin...

Fortunately i still had svg source for it. So I've restored both toolbar and status icons and added tray icon to match other Windows7 tray icons. The only small change is "Create torrent" icon now looks more like a wand rather than just a star.

This icons should play well with 1.8.x and 2.x.x versions of uTorrent (maybe with newer ones as well but i wouldn't recommend anyone to use them).

Download (35 kB), includes svg sources

Installation:

  1. Extract into uTorrent settings folder (typically %APPDATA%\Roaming\uTorrent).
  2. Restart uTorrent.
