Not sure I understand the continual increase in size of the KIX executable over time. Are the developers getting lazy on optimization?

The older version Ive been using is 61k, one quarter the size of the current version.

On top of that, using an executable compression application like UPX ( http://upx.sourceforge.net/ GNU GPL) will give me a file size of under 100kb on the current version and 21k on the older version I have!!!

Before you start to ask, when you have well over 1000 machines at a single site (with sites all over the world) the difference between the two versions I mention is about 200 megabytes of extra traffic the domain controllers have to deal with every morning.

So what gives?
