A New Blackbox Site 2014-04-09 03:35:42
A new Blackbox site was recently created to gap the void left by the demise of the three Blackbox sites that kept the BB for Windows community together since 2001: lostinthebox, bb4win and boxshots. Old, wise and respected figureheads that owned those sites, like tres’ni and NC-17, have gone on to other pastures and although Blackbox remains a fond memory, it’s all in the past for them. However, they did bless this new site with their best wishes for success.

This new niche, www.blackbox4windows.com combines the characteristics of all three sites into one including news, forum, downloads, uploads and live chat.

Created by yours truly with the help of my good friend adni18, one of the most prolific Windows artists and skinners around, the site aspires to become, among other things, a repository of Blackbox styles, themes and builds (core and plugins) and a vehicle for developers and users to get together and bring Blackbox to the next step of its existence.

Blackbox4Windows is hoping you’ll join us – not only you Blackbox style authors and users, but also wallpaper and icon artists, since there is a special section destined to help users decorate their desktops. There is also a niche for Linux Blackbox/Fluxbox/Openbox users AND a gallery where you can show off your screenshots, your themes and your wallpapers.

Come over, folks, you are all needed for a new start in the world of, perhaps, the best shell replacement around.

Another Programmer Joins In 2012-04-16 00:57:04
Another programmer, philliph, joined forces with BBs best to work on the core and plugins. Which means, new options to make a great shell even greater. There is a list of things we would like to see and I am sure you have your own wishlist so go ahead and post it on lostinthebox. And if there are more programmers out there interested in volunteering, we would love to hear from you.

BBAutoBroam Is Released 2012-02-08 05:58:24
Bro offered another plugin – bbAutoBroam, that automatically runs a list of bro@ams at shell startup. With bbAutoBroam you can:
- choose to either use or ignore shell's -nostartup switch
- prevent running of startup bro@ams by simply holding SHIFT at startup
- space up the execution of startup bro@ams with time interval
- get loading feedback (e.g. by using @script[@BBCore.label Loading bbNote...|@BBCore.exec bbNote.exe])
The plugin works fine with BBLean 1.17 but seems to have issues with BlackboXZ by XZero450… Get it from http://www.lostinthebox.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=40409
