Thanks for the reminder of Windows XP's end of support deadline, Doug.

With its release as open source software, BlackBox has reached the final stage of commercial development at Oberon microsystems back in December 2004. Consequently there will be no officially supported versions of BlackBox for Windows 7 from us.

We are really sorry about this but we have to encourage users still relying on BlackBox as their main development platform to start looking for alternatives.

At Oberon microsystems we are currently using C# and .NET for many of our mobile and embedded software projects:

http://xamarin.com/

We also write lots of Java for Android and for our server-based software. Finally, we even have some Objective-C targeting iOS.

For a language very much in the spirit of Oberon, we suggest trying out Google's Go:

With kind regards, Marc

For all of us who must migrate from Windows XP before April 18, 2014
I strongly request of Oberon Microsystems Inc that all Windows 7 glitches be fixed and released
to us before that date.
