Hi all,

I just released PharoLauncher 1.2. It includes a new windows installer that you can use without administrator privileges as well as binary signing for OS X and Windows. Also, Pharo Launcher is not anymore identified as ‘Pharo’ application and comes with its own icon.

Here is the changelog (details on https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-launcher/issues <https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-launcher/issues>):
New features:
	#21 Bless the DMG
	#46 sign pharo launcher app for windows
	#103 No way to rename a local template
	#107 Unable to add a description for the image using the Launcher UI
	#121 You can't see/sort images by last modified date
	#69 Import command should also import pharo-local directory
	#70 Import command should delete origin folder if empty
	#73 Managers of Download of VMs and images should be in their own packages
	#76 Use https instead of http to requests the pharo file server
	#82 Official Distributions loads 32bit versions on 64bit System (i.e. provide better information on templates architecture)
	#86 Sort Existing Images Case-Insensitive
	#98 Copy and subfolders problem (contents no copied)
	#101 Templates from a local image are listed in "downloaded". "local" would be a better name
	#102 Template Cleared at Startup setting is enabled, making it weird when trying to use the template feature
	#106 Import could work if we select the parent folder of an image
	#109 Use latest pre-Spur VM to determine the image version
	#122 The Run without settings icon looks like a funny grey/which blob (missing alpha correction)
Bux fixes:
	#41 #selectedMorphList was sent to nil
	#67 bash is not a command usable under windows
	#68 Does not launch images on Windows
	#85 Double click on an existing image open a file selector
	#88 Pharo Launcher on Windows > Failing
	#104 GUI bug makes Launcher unusable
	#110 Image launch not reliable on Windows
	#119 MessageNotUnderstood exception on launch
	#123 The status bar of the Launcher is broken, so can't easily show image descriptions 

Big thanks to all contributors: code, issues report, comments, advices.
