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 1.2.0

Released on the 27th of May, 2018


The major feature of this version was support for multiple profiles - meaning more users could share the same installation of Costa, or that one use could have separate profiles for work, play etc.

  • Support for multiple profiles added, with each profile having its own settings, theme and personal desktop links
  • Added more tips for “Tip of the Day” dialog, to help users discover more hidden (or less well-known) features of Costa
  • Fixed bug in icon editor that resulted in a blank pixel being drawn when the left mouse button was lifted
  • Fixed bug in icon editor that caused it to repeatedly ask for confirmation before overwrite on each save, even if the icon had already been saved to that same filename
  • Fixed bug that allowed paths to be shown belong icon captions, instead of just filenames, which cluttered the desktop with text
