First I wanna ty very much for such great tool.
I am not very much using of Windows, but when it comes to play I cant live without putty, winscp and some other handy tools.

I found file named winscp425.exe
I am using it for few weeks, didn't find any bugs or problems (not mentioned ones already fixed in 4.27).
Now I found that the file has only 1.638.912 bytes.
Its exactly same as

Comparing it to WinSCP.exe (from which is 6.361.088 bytes) is unbelievable small.
Is is some portable version?
Is "small" version of 4.27 available to download somewhere?
How (any tool/compilation mode?) did you make 4.25 form 6.3MB to 1.6MB?
Thank you for your answer and advice.

I can send you MD5/SHA1 on your demand, Martin.
