The much requested Win32 Port has been made available on the download page (at the bottom of the “Binary Distributions” section)!
Jason L. Shiffer wrote an Emacs mode for boxes. So all of you who’ve been waiting for information on boxes integration with Emacs, please see the installation page.
Many contributions to the download page have been made by various people, including FreeBSD ports, a Solaris 2.5.1 port, and Red Hat RPM packages. The current snapshot now compiles on more platforms (even on OSF/1, when
-D_ANSI_C_SOURCEis added to the regexp compilation stuff - someone got a binary?).
VERSION 1.0 IS OUT! We finally left the beta stage behind and moved to a stable release. Get it from the download page.
Updated the download page with new binaries (beta version 5). There are currently no known problems with this version.
A major step in development after a long pause. Improvements include changes to the config file syntax which take care of the backslash explosion. Remember to download the current snapshot rather than the other source archives. Keeping track of boxes development is easiest via the log page, which is the most up-to-date page of this site.
Web page redesign. Lots of docs coming up!
Added Solaris binary and source archive for current beta2 version. Barring popular request, all features are in. Do still expect enhancements on the design autodetector, GNU configure support (porting) and POSIX support for the regular expression stuff. In other words, go ahead and use this beta, because the user side won’t really be affected by the planned changes.
Added Solaris binary and source archive for current alpha2 version. Other binaries will be made available when development has reached a serious beta state. Most features are already in, but expect a padding option and some minor stuff.
Added “Current Snapshot” to download section. This will be updated semi-automatically whenever a minor change was implemented. This particular snapshot just added already includes untested box removal functionality. Consider this an alpha version.
