Just your assumption. The web site is still maintained by the developer. If Clipx was abandoned, without a home page I would call that "abandoned".
But it isn't.
I have not struck any bugs in my 14 years of using ClipX

I am running ClipX on 9 machines in a commercial environment.
ClipX also has 7 plugins of which I use ClipX Stickies Plugin 1.9 x64 ... stickies are loaded before ClipX.exe is run
I have written a script that runs at boot to update the first 3 stickie items with 3 different date formats for "today" and then runs ClipX.exe
Stickies are normally edited manually via the "Configeration" window, but I only go there a few times in a year.
Ctl+Insert is my hot key of choice to display the ClipX history list.
ClipX can be configured to hold 1024 clips ( plus 1024 stickies which IMO is absurd)

ClipX (IMO) is the lightest clipboard extender, and the user does not have to be a brain surgeon to use it.


Dead product

It appears that the company behind this (Blue Mars) has gone under. Currently searching for the best alternative as there are some bugs with ClipX on 64-bit Windows Vista or 7 that were not ironed out prior to the death blow.


I agree, it's a pity!
Best tools of this kind are CLCL and ClipX but both have been discontinued and still have some little glitches... All other clipboard managers out there are bloated software IMHO and are usually slow to use (they open a window and you have to select the clip etc....) compared to a simple & fast (pop-up) menu!

A new project is born though:

ClipX v1.0.3.8 on ...
Win-7 PRO 64-bit ... since Aug-2017
Win-7 HP 64-bit ... since 2012
Win-7 HP 32 bit ... since 2005

No problems ... :)
