Let me know if something is unclear. Update the wiki if you find improvements.
Of course, I can also offer to do it.

I have created a new version which is in http://blackboxframework.org/stable/ - any comments?

I have not (yet!) attempted to update the download page. I think there are also links on the forums that might need updating?

One detail I cannot remember is this: in release v1.7 there are two Source code files (zip and tar.gz)
but I don't know if they have been created automatically or if they have been attached explicitly.

I can't see any tar files for 1.7 or 1.7.1.
What is the "-sibfu" file?

The next step would be to create a 'release' in Github.
A release is a tag (a label) put on a specific revision of a specific branch.
We are putting this tag on the current (HEAD, =default) revision of the one and only 'master' branch.

Go to Github / Blackbox, log in, click on the 'release' link and then click the button 'Draft a new release'.
Use v1.7.1 as the tag name and the release title. In 'Describe this release' add links like in v1.7 but pointing to the new release.
Then we will see if the 'Source code' files are generated automatically.

I think I shall give up at this stage and ask you to complete this process.

Done:

See https://github.com/BlackBoxCenter/blackbox/releases.

The 'Source code' archive files have been created automatically.

Helmut, did you download the source archive? It seems so.
The source archive contains the contents of the Github repository, not the output of the build process.

@all:
FYI, I have updated the download page in Zenario.
Please check.

@Ivan
Would you be so kind to create a signed version of the installer?
Currently that link in the download page of course does not work.

I just repeated the download from "Main page" and I received a different file as before. It looks ok.

Looks good to me - I have not checked all the links.

1 - I do not want the page to get too crowded, but maybe adding a link to the 1.7 changes file is useful?
2 - Just out of pure curiosity where are the tar files?

I added the changes from 1.6 to 1.7 to the previous release.

Which tar files?

FYI: I have announced the release on the community board.
See https://community.blackboxframework.org/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=190.
