Hi, just wondered whether a 64 bit version of BB is planned?

Yes, there is new compiler for BlackBox

When it will be ready, we plan to make 64 bit BlackBox.

Awesome. I only just discovered BB and am loving it. But it seems the community is very small so I did wonder whether there was anyone working on a 64 bit version, good to know there is.

Yes, there are plans for a 64bit compiler and 64bit BB.
Out of curiosity, Why are you interested? Is it, well, curiosity, or any practical intent?

I'm not using BB for any RAM intensive applications, so no real need for 64 bit, mainly curious about future plans.

While I'm here, I have another question. If I want to use BB for a dedicated application or distribute it, I would remove the subsystems and modules I don't need, but what is the absolute minimum necessary for a functioning BB? Thanks.

You should be able to find the answer to your question in the sections The BlackBox linker and Linking BlackBox Applications in the Platform-Specific Issues (Windows) section of the BlackBox help file.
