Notepad++ v5.1 Official Release is available :
In this release a crash bug due to the weird file creation/modification time
Some features and bugs are also added and fixed in this release. But the most
important added feature is make Notepad++ version 5.1 a true Unicode-compliant
Not only you can open a Unicode path file in Notepad++, but also you can use
whichever localization file (nativeLang.xml) under whichever language environment
A new plugin DocShared is included in this release (in both ANSI and Unicode
DocShared plugin (developped by Harry) allows multi-user to modify the same
document in the real time via the network(collaborative editing). My favarite
part is this brilliant plugin transforms Notepad++ from an text editor into
a IM client, without inscription on any server side.
Another new included plugin deserved to be mentioned is NppAutoIndent (Harry
It makes smart indent feature available in C style (c, c++, java, c#...) languages.
Smart indent feature is ON by default in official distribution.
2 packages are included in 5.1 OR : Unicode release and ANSI release.
ANSI version is released for those who work still under pre-historic win95/98/ME
Sure you can always use the ANSI version under w2k/xp/vista if you don't need
Unicode path support, however unicode release will be the main stream on the
future versions (ie. The installer contains only Unicode version).
All the plugins which are compatible with v5.0.3 will be compatible with ANSI
release, but not with Unicode release.
For the plugin authors, please refer to the note in Plugin forum to make plugin
compatible with both Unicode/ANSI version :
Note that the Notepad++ installer won't remove the ANSI plugins for you, so
if you update your old Notepad++ with installer, remove the ANSI plugins manually
after the installation.
If you find any regression, please report here by precising your notepad++ release
mode (ANSI or UNICODE), which is indicated in About dialog.
