    Any news on whether the icon’s background color will ever be fixed? Pet Petri’s screenshot, it looks absolutely awful and out of place on a dark taskbar.

    The change to the icon is included in KB2825630.  Make sure that you apply all of the prerequisites listed in the KB as well.  Also make sure that you understand the known issue with the September client update.  I have a blog post about it and KB2825630 lists it as well.
