Final release of BlackBox 1.6

Postby Ivan Denisov » Tue Oct 15, 2013 2:55 pm

Dear BlackBox Developers,

we are pleased to announce the final release of BlackBox 1.6. You can download it via the following link:

Please find attached lists with changes since Release 1.6-rc6 as well as since Release 1.5.

Oberon microsystems does not plan to work on BlackBox beyond version 1.6. All future corrections, improvements and the release management will have to be driven by the community. To facilitate this, BlackBox 1.6 is licensed under the simple 2-Clause BSD license (

We have also compiled a collection of open points and patches that did not make it into 1.6. You can get them at the following URLs:

Thanks to all of you for your enthusiasm and dedication over so many years, and your appreciation for lightweight, robust and modular software. These are qualities that are dear to our hearts, and where we feel that Oberon and BlackBox are fundamentally as relevant today as they were ten, twenty years ago. We hope that the new release makes it easier to continue using them for the coming years, and wish the community all the best!

With best regards,
Your Oberon microsystems crew
