Why is file size of recent builds so huge compared to previous builds
I knew someone would ask :) But no worries, there is no huge addition, spyware or something like that. It's just that the nightly builds are no longer compressed with UPX. They now contain a code signature, as told here. Compressing signed .exe files with UPX removes or breaks the code signature for some reason, so I just disabled compression. Traffic does not matter much anyway, so that should not be a problem.
Yes - this thread is 5 years old - there is already this one. I had the impression that unpacking a packed exe takes quite some milliseconds on slow systems. Traffic is fast enough, and the size of the nightlies is not that large anyway. Also, the installer is still compressed, due to its own compressor.
