The purpose of this thread is to answer a few questions I've been asked many times and layout the difference between my builds and why they are what they are.
The first build:
Base: bbLean 1.16
What it is:
bbClean was an effort by many developers to enhance the experience by offering so long overdue improvements that weren't entirely possible with plugins. bbClean's goal was to offer as much configuration, breaking as little compatibility, and maintaining or improving the level of performance. It did not always accomplish this goal, but there were always attempts to remedy what was broken. I played a very minor part in the initial bbClean builds, and only released my personal build after coming to the conclusion I wasn't going to fix what was broken - thus it became an offering to those who could cope with it problems for it's enhancements. I later added more enhancements, per pitkon's(and others) request, which are now included in my "nightly" build.
This build was intentionally discontinued and no longer supported in a development sense, meaning I will not enhance it and I will not promote enhancing it. Support is offered in the sense of "How do I do..." because it is blackbox and most of it is the same.
The second build:
Base: bbLean 1.17.1
What it is:
BlackboxZero was intended to be a refresh. The reason for this was that bbClean had become rather cumbersome to work with, from a development perspective, because so many things had been "glued" to it as an enhancement and it was to the point where plugins could not be compiled against it and expected to work with other builds. One of the original ideas behind Blackbox 4 Windows was that there would be one general API that could be used to develop plugins and that plugin could work in any branch. The various branches that stemmed off in the "branch wars" days of Blackbox 4 Windows entirely did away with this(bbClean was just as guilty, if not more, than the rest of the branches - only a few stayed true.)
BlackboxZero got it's name because it was going to be a refresh. It was going to start over, start from Zero. With the fresh start, enhancements were going to be added in a way that were geared toward compatibility with it's older brethren, and making more versatile and future proof. It's ideal was grand, but where I left off was a state of immaturity. There were a great deal of things that needed to be added that are in various older branches. I've attached the changelog of the changes I made during my short time of working on it.
