Laguna Beach, CA — January 10, 2007 — Eclipsit, creators of the Microangelo family of icon editors and utilities, today announced the release of Toolset 6 for both x86 and x64 platforms, each of which have been “Certified for Windows Vista” by Microsoft.  Microangelo, better known as the “Grand-Daddy” of icon software, provides tools and features specifically designed for all aspects of icon development and management.

“Our customers come to us for high quality software that offers cutting-edge capabilities and delivers the best customer experience,” said Len Gray, CEO at Eclipsit. “The certification requirements for Windows Vista complement our own goals, allowing us to provide our customers with great experiences and enabling them to achieve their best results.  By working together with Microsoft, we feel confident that Microangelo Toolset will provide users of Windows Vista with a superior product, tested and proven to provide enhanced reliability, security and compatibility.”

Microangelo and its creators have been pioneers of icon software for Windows platforms for over fifteen years, beginning with their release of the very the first icon editor for Windows in 1990 and the introduction of the icon library format in 1991 (now an industry standard). Microangelo has “pushed the envelope”, offering True Color icon as early as 1995, and released the world's first icon editor to create and manage alpha-blended icons for Windows XP. Today, the "Grand-Daddy" of icon software continues to lead the way, providing a complete solution for the latest, high resolution icons in Windows Vista.
