In this version, a help file (Thanx to Harry) is included in the binary release.
This help document is very well done so please RTFM before you post your question
on the forums.

Another feature is user can change the localization on the run time (which makes
Notepad++ translators' life easier).

Here's Notepad++ v5.1.4 new feature and fixed bugs (from v5.1.3) :

1. Add localization on run time feature : Change language on the run time for
Unicode version (via preferences dialog).
2. Add the ability to force opened ANSI document as UTF-8 w/o BOM.
3. Fix verbose backup bug (while the backup dir is not set).
4. Fix bug that external lexer doesn't work with Unicode version.
5. Fix recent files list bug.
6. Include a help content file.
7. Add new plugin notification message NPPN_WORDSTYLESUPDATED.
8. Add 2 plugin messages for shortcut feature : NPPN_SHORTCUTREMAPPED notification
and NPPM_GETSHORTCUTBYCMDID message.

I work hard for this release, so enjoy
Don

Dear Don,

First: thanks for the new release, it's nice that you keep up the work on NP++
:)

I've got two questions. Easy one first - what about the NPPM_DOOPEN message?
(see https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=2325482&forum_id=482781
) - any plans on adding it to the official Notepad_plus_msgs.h ?

Second: this might be a bit too late (since it would break current plugins),
but what about making isUnicode() return either "requires ANSI", "requires UNICODE",
"neutral"? If you don't need to use any of the file/path functions of NP++,
you don't really need to do separate ansi/unicode builds of your plugins...
plugins already require "mixed mode" programming since Scintilla is ANSI-only,
and imho plugin name and plugin function names don't really need unicode characters.
Not a big deal, just a thought...

Thanks Don

Unfortunately, this bug:
https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=2821726&forum_id=331753
is still there.

Version 5.1.4 (Ansi/Unicode) crashes under XP + SP2 during "search in files"
if "two-column-view" is active...

Best Regards

Thanks for spoiling us once more.

One thing: on the website the "Latest version" line is empty...

There is also a cosmetic problem in the Preferences dialog, in the MISC tab.
The descriptions for the Document Switcher section are truncated.

It'll be added in the next version - as doc described.

What kind of plugin will be neutral? A plugin must pass its name and its command
names to Notepad++, therefor ANSI and Unicode schema should be followed.

An obvious answer: only the Unicode version of Notepad++ must call the isUnicode()
function of a plugin. The ANSI version (and all the older versions, obviously)
must never call the function.

I just installed 5.1.4 Unicode. Thanks, and keep up the good work!

However there was a glitch:
I had been using the Unicode build for the FunctionList v1.2 plugin (see the
thread on FunctionList in the Plugin Development forum) that Harry posted there.
On opening 5.1.4, I was told that the dll would be deleted because of compatibility
issues, and indeed it was deleted.

However:
* that dll worked fine with 5.1.2u;
* I copied the dll back into \Plugins, and things work as usual again.

So there could be something wrong with the way N++ assesses whether a plugin
is Unicode compatible on its first run.

btw, while awaiting for a FunctionList v2.0 unicode, wouldn't it be ok to add
this build to the included plugins?

CChris

Interesting idea - as long as isUnicode() is guaranteed to be called before
getFuncsArray(), that would work (and it ought to be, unless NP++ only checks
for the *presence* of this export).

I would recommend this Unicode build of FunctionList 1.2 :

The problem with that dll is that is did not recognise my settings. Probably
it takes an .ini file which is not "FunctionList.ini". Reinstating the dll I
had restored the settings being used.

Since the issue came up only on installing N++ 5.1.4, perhaps the official FL
v2.0u will come out before N++ 5.1.5 :-)

The ANSI version (and all the older versions, obviously) must never call the
function.

The current Notepad++ ANSI implementation is : if isUnicode() function retrieved,
then call it and check it's not Unicode plugin.
Otherwise it's ignored for the sake of backward compatibility.

This function should be called in both mode (in ANSI mode if it is present)
to guarantee the Notepad++'s stability.
Since Scintilla is ANSI-only, a simple plugin must only
provide a few strings in Unicode for the Notepad++ itself.
The problem here is : plugins should deal with Notepad++ but not with
Scintilla.
This solution is fully backwards compatible
The current implementation is fully backwards compatible.
It should really be the setUnicode() to switch a plugin to the Unicode mode.
and does not REQUIRE one to maintain two binary distributions of a simple
plugin.
Instead one can store two string constants in the source, and that's it.
It's a very interesting idea to provide string dynamically.
I'll think about it.

Don

The open file function (Alt+F5) still can't open any relative path files!
Is this function will not be changed back again??

Not really. What you should do instead is use the directory variable for the
current file, then go relative of that (which is about the same, except a lot
more reliable), like $(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)\..\[path] (dunno if that is the correct
syntax, you can look it up)

Seems there is a new strange problem with Scintilla's window redrawing. Sometimes,
when switching from Notepad++ to another application(s) and then, after some
time, switching back to Notepad++, Notepad++ is shown without its tollbar and
its statusbar is also absent or shown over Scintilla's window.
Also, sometimes Scintilla's window is not fully redrawn - this rarely occurs
when one big file is opened and you perform "Go to another View" (try it several
times).

You might touch F12 key to trigger the Post-It feature.

No, the regular Notepad++ window is shown (with title bar, with main menu),
but without tool-bar and without status-bar or with status-bar's text over
Scintilla's window bottom. It rarely happens with maximized Notepad++ window
after you switch to it from another maximized application. But I can not reproduce
it when I try - it happens really rarely.
However, the drawing bug with one opened file and "Go to another View" is reproduced
constantly.

Shouldn't we start a new thread instead of replying to something from a week
ago and in general news...
