The Archive

I have decided to make every previous version of Costa available for download, to preserve its history and to allow anyone interested in seeing how Costa has evolved to do so.

In the archive you will find a complete list of releases, with changelog for each version, as well as a screenshot.

It's a long list, with releases spanning nearly two decades.

Version 0.2.3

Released on the 23rd of April, 2004


The second release of Costa. Had many improvements over 0.0.1.

  • Script support. All accessories (except for the DOS-Prompt and paint) was made using scripts.
  • Painting-program (could only save bitmaps, bitmap loading routine didn’t make it to this version)
  • Icons all over Costa
  • More buttons added to the Blue-bar: Paint, Help and About
  • Full documentation, describing every aspect of Costa
  • Customizable start menu
  • Nicer inputbox
  • Faster than 0.0.1
  • Simple file-viewer
