The last version they wrote an IconData update for was 10.8.3, though most things still worked through 10.8.5. I would doubt there will ever be anymore updates provided at least in its current form. Sad, I loved that program.

They could've been decent about it and released the source code. Quite a lot of people like the app, and unless they have some proprietary technology that could compromise their currently supported software, I don't see why not ...

 

(Oh, and Panic, come on! Do something interesting to Coda already. Integrate functionality similar to CodeKit and Hammer, perhaps.)

I changed all of my icons to a more ios7 feel this morning. Just find the icon you want, hit get info then Command + C. Right click on the app you are wanting to change the icon on, go to get info and click on the icon in the top left corner of the get info box. It should have a blue glow to show that it is highlighted. Command + V and volia, Icon changed.

 

Now I will be honest, it did take me over an hour to change all of my icons. I was able to change, trash, calendar, and the finder icon as well. Those three take a little more time ,but are fairly straightforward as well. Just do a google search and the directions are easily found.

 

I liked candybar as well, a lot less time consuming.

Doing it manually is so time consuming!

Lots of people are requesting an update to Candybar.

Let's just hope they update it! I would pay $4.99 for it on the app store if it meant regular updates

You could try Iconbox – http://www.iconboxapp.com – though I doubt that it's full Mavericks-compatible yet, if ever!

To get CandyBar working in Mavericks:
 
  1. Go into a terminal and enter this command:

    sudo nano /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
  2. Then change the two entries denoting the Mavericks version number “10.9″ to “10.8″ and save the file.
  3. Now open CandyBar and change your icons.
  4. Make sure you change those values back once you’re finished to avoid future problems.
  5. Rinse/repeat next time you want to run CandyBar again.
The only thing preventing CandyBar from working in Mavericks is this version check. No need to wait for an update (although that would make things waaay more convenient).
