The Haikdepot web app allows one to select either HVIF or PNG files as icons for packages. However, in the desktop app, only HVIF icons are displayed.In the attached screenshots, see the status of the apps 256 and 4colors_j, for example.

My repo has over 900 packages, around half of which are old BeOS apps. Their icons are part of their brand and history, and it would not respect the original authors IMHO to just create all-new icons for them. My own lack of graphics skill does not make it feasible to re-create these icons as vector icons from scratch.

I request that PNG icons also be displayed in the Haikudepot desktop app.
