The author of Shadowbox requested that we stop distributing the Shadowbox source so we have removed the links from this page. If anyone is desperate for an older version and you can't get it by normal means (searching the internet, asking the author, phoning a friend) then get in touch and we'll see what we can do.
Please for installation instructions read the INSTALL.txt included in the module package.
