Can't wait to see what the 5th iteration of Blackbox will bring to the table.

Yes, this is the original one, an improvement over his earlier 1.16. Obsolete now, imho. Newer builds offer so much more.

Yes, looks like qwilk is implementing 8-color gradients to his new build. VERY exciting. Will upload a screenie the soonest possible.

Interesting...

Question 1: Will this be available across all gradient types?

crossdiagonal | rectangle | pyramid | pipecross |  elliptic | horizontal | vertical | diagonal

Question 2: Will this be stipulated in the style file as:

<name>.color1: #xxxxxx
<name>.color2: #xxxxxx
<name>.color3: #xxxxxx
<name>.color4: #xxxxxx
<name>.color5: #xxxxxx etc.?

...

I guess this also means that virtually ALL plugins will have to be rebuilt, that's a pretty hefty task!

First of all, soooooo good to see you again, my friend!

1) You are forgetting split and mirror graphics. :) I am sure the answer will be (finally) yes.

2) I don't see why not.

3) Not necessarily. But we do know that Xob didn't always work with some BBLean plugins, right?

I am sure qwilk will answer all these questions more precisely :)

lukefury, pitkon, Zero Senki, crowmag:

 

Sorry about the radio silence; I've been down with flu+pneumonia for a couple of weeks so I had to prioritize other things, but I'm delighted to hear about your interest in the upcoming xoblite bb5!  :)

 

As for the release schedule... well, code-wise it's getting closer by the day, but there are many additional things that I - yeah still the one man show sorry  :wink: - also need to wrap up as part of the release process, such as website updating, new documentation, new example content (styles, themes...), etc, and in the end I don't want to promise something I will not be able to keep, but rest assured I'm working as hard as time+life allows at the moment; I will of course keep you posted about any developments!  :thumbsup:

 

Regarding crowmag's Q1 and Q2:

 

"Question 1: Will this be available across all gradient types?"

 

Sorry, no; as with the 4-colour split gradients before them this would require extensive changes (read: likely a complete rewrite) to the legacy drawing code to support gradients the beyond horizontal/vertical variants. This said, the new 8-colour SuperHorizontal/SuperVertical gradients will be supported for all applicable style elements, and especially the former is really nice IMHO...  :yes:

 

"Question 2: Will this be stipulated in the style file as color1..8?"

 
Yes.

Those gradients are a very nice addition. That will be helpul to create even more beautiful styles.

 

Though there's a feature I'd wish for even more. It's the systray which I can't use in bbZero 1.18 and as far as I remember Xoblite (at least the old version) had the same problem. If the tool's installed I see the full systray and can use it but there are things I can't use anymore (like the Windows 10 settings panel which is part of the Windows Explorer). But if I don't install it and just run it, the systray is kinda useless because it doesn't show all symbols. Since I use Win10 Pro I'm sticking to the latter option because that's the only way to have a systray (in the original Windows taskbar) and all the elements/tools which are part of the Explorer at the same time.

So I'd wish for a feature that enables BB to either use the complete systray when not installed or to run explorer.exe in the background so I can use the elements which are part of the Explorer.

 

I hope you understand. English isn't my mother language :)

 

Thanks for reading, considering and perhaps even fixing.

Anyway looking forward to any new version/feature.

Actually, you don't need systray if it doesn't serve you well. Use bbtray, works fine with BBZero 1.8 and other builds.

Following your suggestion I tried BBtray, BBAltTray and BBTrayMenu and all of them gave me the following message:

 

Error: plugins\<plugin path>\<filename>.dll

The plugin cannot be loaded. Possible reasons:

- The plugin requires another dll that is not there

- The plugin is incompatible with the windows version.

- The plugin is incompatible with this blackbox version.

 

I'm running bbZero 1.18.0-dirty on Windows 10 v1909 on top of explorer. It's not installed.

 

Any ideas what might be wrong?

 

Thanks in advance.
