The Bad News:

If you’re prompted by your web browser or JAVA if you’d like to run an application that this site is hosting, you can say yes or no - it’s just an idea I’ve decided to try and help provide funding for the site via the plausibly doomed BitCoin currency. If you find your CPU at 100% while on this page, this is why - I’m using your computer indirectly to generate revenue for the site. Once you leave the site, it will stop running. Since no one has ever donated a single cent to this project, it just had to be tried, even if the backlash is to remove it entirely.

Enough of that, then, let’s go on with the good news:

Work has begun on BootZilla v5.6, which will be doing away with most of the old scripting in lieu of using Ketarin, a multipurpose application downloader, which can be setup to post-process the files it gets using external applications.

The only “downfall” is that BootZilla v5.6 will need .NET 2.0 to be installed. This shouldn’t be a problem for ANYONE. It’s 2011, and time for .NET to be the mainstream Windows platform to develop applications like Ketarin on.

Here’s the progress so far with Ketarin in use, setup with a small selection of the tools found in bootzilla:

So far, the downloader has been tested, and found to work beautifully as a replacement for BZUpdate and Wget, which is excellent, as it should resolve a lot of problems that have been the bane of BootZilla’s existence for a while now.

Version 5.99/6.0 has also begun development, firstly as a small addon to Windows PE 2.0/2.1/3.0, which will probably be migrated into a WinBuilder project later on during its development.
