Boxes in the press: boxes was covered by nixCraft in an article with video. Here is the video:
Version 1.1 is out. Version 1.1 is essentially a maintenance release, which solves all compilation and compatibility issues reported to the author. This mainly affected modern Linuxes. I took the opportunity to also apply all patches that had been submitted, and added tab handling options for leading tabs (see what’s new). Get it from the download page.
Now, I am looking for help with the binary distributions, which should be brought up to level 1.1. Any contributions are greatly appreciated!
A new code snapshot is available on the download page. Most notably, it includes Andreas Heiduk’s (@asheiduk) patch for compilation with present-day flexes.
I finally put some new box designs submitted by users of boxes up on the download page. Also, there is a new patch by Elmar Loos, who added a “repair” option
-m to boxes. Using
-m, you can remove a damaged box and redraw it in one go. And last but not least, Jason Shiffer updated his emacs mode for boxes.
Boxes has moved to a new home: http://boxes.thomasjensen.com/. This will help keep boxes available to you for years to come!
Jason L. Shiffer has just updated his Emacs mode for boxes to automatically adapt to new box styles.
