hi admin

why not distribute the Nightly Builds with highly compress size using UPX?

I try to compress the build 7.0.0.4279 and found no problem.

Smaller size can reduce the updating time right?

I used upx some years ago, but it caused problems with MadExcept. See issue #1439 and issue #765.

Got it: When the .exe is compressed by UPX, madExcept is no longer able to calculate its callstack. So you get *some* callstack with totally unrelated code paths in case of exceptions.

All in all I would not use UPX anyway, as bandwidth is not a problem nowadays.
