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 0.3.0

Released on the 1st of November, 2004


With 0.3.0, the third release of Costa, things really started to look better. This version was never released, but has now (sep. 2015) been made available for download on this site!
