The change-log is where I look before I (almost nightly) download
current builds. Here's the description:

"r19374: resize-on-load for bitmap files on 2bpp and color targets"

Not knowing for a fact that this referred to album art, I had some
doubt of my own observations. I guess you could accuse me of not
looking in the right place (and you actually DID in an off-hand way),
but I don't think that its reasonable to assume that everyone who
downloads nightly builds will also check the major changes page. If
you don't agree, I don't care - you've already proven to be
unreasonable and rude.

Mr. Louden - please don't answer any further queries from me in the
future. I'd rather maintain discourse with others on the list that
share their information and questions willingly.

As for your last statement - "If I'm asking you for a bug report..."
- I asked you a question, you in turn took it upon yourself to
withhold information and requested further information from me in an
accusatory manner.

Mr. Louden - please don't restate your opinion of this dialog, my
email filters are being set accordingly. I'm sure others on the list
aren't interested in another demonstration of your heavy-handedness.

I'm really surprised that I haven't read a single post in the last 48
hours from others using current builds regarding album art resizing.
How does it appear to be working on your installs? I know this list
is moderated without desire for continued dialog on ANY topic, but
can I hear a "YAY" it looks good, or "NAY" it broke my themes, or
even an "I hate album art". :)
