    The splashscreen is a winform which only uses the background.png
    So an animated splashscreen is probably not possible.

    Instead of background.png you can use any other png or animated gif.
    Animated gif works fine in alternate splashscreen (fullscreen) except one thing:
    Because of high system load during startup it won't play smoothly.
    If it'll be possible to give highest priority to playing gif file during loading - it would be excellent.

    But what would be the sense in having a high priority gif animation and therefore delaying the actual startup, just for some eyecandy?
    Sure it would be nice to have, but not for the price of a slower startup.

    Atm the splashscreen does not allow any other controls than the splashscreen JPG/PNG and a hardcoded font at a hardcoded position to show the startup progress ;)
