Notepad++ 7.8.6


Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.

Notepad++ 7.8.6 changelog:

  • Add multi-column marker (multi-line edge) feature.

  • Add dynamical sorting feature for Folder as Workspace.

  • Make MRU tab activate instead of rightmost tab while tab closure (if MRU enabled).

  • Fix folding state lost on the next startup issue.

  • Make Replace-in-Files confirmation dialog modal to prevent from crashing.

  • Add support of smart-indenting for Perl and Rust.

  • Make recorded macro (IDC_FINDNEXT & IDC_FINDPREV)retro-compatible up to 7.8.4.
