I'm really sorry to have found that the release was slightly premature,
see below.

Unfortunately, the new icon is not quite the correct one,
i.e. the one for which Tibco has given permission to use.
Please wait for the subsequent release of 5.9.1.

This is entirely my fault (and not Tibco's or any other ESS core member's);
please apologize the inconvenience.
