Will there be an update soon, fixing the small bugs?
What small bugs are you referring to? In StrokeIt? If so, post the Forum there, and I'll make sure and check them out.

The last version I have downloaded was about 97KB - I had downloaded it even if it had 200KB.
200k would have taken twice as long. Its worth the time for me to make all of my software as small and fast as possible to provide my users with the best experience they could possibly have.

That will make a difference of less than a minute in download time (analog modem), while it takes you hours to create a custom compiler
every time NSIS is updated
Nah, not hours. Maybe a half hour at best, because I always play with all the options again trying to get the filesize down some more.

But again, it's worth it to me to spend the time to make a better experience for my users.

Not that I can think of off of the top of my head. Once I get the new version and play with it, I'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks a ton.
