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 1.3.0

Released on the 22nd of October, 2020


Most of the stuff in this release takes place behind the scenes, where a bunch of minor bugs, typos etc. has been fixed. There is one major addition though - at last, Costa has a built-in theme editor!

  • New theme editor - allowing you to edit any theme, and modify the colors to your liking. User submitted themes are welcome!
  • Moved accessories out of desktop, and into separate programs, for easier development and modularity
  • Fixed bug introduced in 1.2.0, where the procedure responsible for running external programs did not put a space between the command/filename and the parameters, breaking some desktop links
  • More icons added - including one for everyone’s favorite game, MS-DOS Gorillas!
  • Moved Configuration from a desktop link to a button in top panel, to free up screen real estate for user links
  • Minor bugfixes
  • Theme files (.thm) now associated with Theme Editor
