Here's the v.5 ALPHA binary :
http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/commun/misc/npp.5.0.Alpha.bin.zip

Thanks to Harry, the performance of Notepad++ v5 is improved - especially on
exit.
A lot of new features are added in v5 : Calltip, bookmarked lines
cut/copy/paste/delete operations, the capacity of adding plugin commands to
the context menu, more items (caret, tab bar) are configurable, ...etc.

Some quick notes for the new feature of calltip and configuration of context
menu :
1. calltip : calltip feature in a modern IDE always comes together with
auto-completion. In this version of Notepad++ calltip feature is implemented
as extension of auto-completion. All the api files for auto-completion are now
under xml format(with extension .xml).

<KeyWord name="fnsplit" />
<KeyWord name="fopen" func="yes">
<Overload retVal="FILE *" >
<Param name="const char * file" />
<Param name="const char * mode" />
</Overload>
</KeyWord>
<KeyWord name="for" />

As you can see, attribute "name" contains the value for auto-completion. Whereas
Overload node is for calltip. While you type "fopen(", the following calltip
(if enabled) will show :
FILE * fopen(const char * file, const char * mode)

2. context menu : Not mention to the ability of adding plugin commands into
context menu, adding context menu items in contextMenu.xml is easier in this
version.
Note that for the sake of backward compatibility, id attribute will still work
on the future release.
Here's the example :

<NotepadPlus>
<ScintillaContextMenu>
<Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Cut"/>
<Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Copy"/>
<Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Paste"/>
<Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Delete"/>
<Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Select all"/>
<Item id="0"/>
<Item MenuEntryName="Search" MenuItemName="Mark all"/>
<Item MenuEntryName="Search" MenuItemName="Unmark all"/>
<Item id="0"/>
<Item PluginEntryName="NppExport" pluginCommandItemName="Copy RTF to
clipboard"/>
<Item PluginEntryName="MIME Tools" pluginCommandItemName="Base64
Decode"/>
<Item id="0"/>
<Item id="42016"/>
<Item id="42017"/>
<Item id="0"/>
<Item id="42022"/>
<Item id="42023"/>
<Item id="0"/>
<Item id="44042"/>
</ScintillaContextMenu>
</NotepadPlus>

Notepad++ architecture is modified partially, so there may be still a few of
non-discovered regressions, please let us know if you find them in this version.

Notepad++ v5 fixed bugs and added features (from v4.9.2) :

1. Improve Notepad++ performance - on startup and on exit.
2. Add Calltip capacity.
3. All the menu commands can be added in context menu, including plugins' commands,
macros and user defined commands.
4. Add bookmarked lines operations : delete all marked lines, copy all marked
lines into clipboard, cut all marked lines into clipboard, paste from clipboard
to replace all marked lines content.
5. Fix crash bug : Open files with date pre-1970.
6. Fix clone mode bug : now the actions done in one view will be synchronized
in the cloned view.
7. Add tooltips in document tab to display the full file name path.
8. Change hide lines behaviour : Hide lines now saved during switches.
9. Change file history list behaviour : Most recent closed file is on the top.
Add number on list.
10. Caret width and blink rate are customizable.
11. Add asterisk in title bar if file is dirty.
12. The bookmarks' look & feel are improved.
13. Add "Select all" and "copy" context menu items in Find in files results
window.
14. Fix goto line with command line bug.
15. Improve smart highlight / mark all / incremental search highlight all
visibility
16. Tabbar's coulours is configurable via Stylers Configurator(Active tab Text,
Inactive tab text, Inactive tab background, Active tab focused indicator and
Active tab unfocused indicator).
17. Add the smart highlight file size limit - 1.5 MB in order to improve the
performance.
18. Add exception handling (dumping filedata).


Included plugins :

1. TexFX v0.24a
2. NppExec v0.2 RC3.2
3. Spell Checker v1.3.1
4. MIME Tools v1.4
5. FTP_synchronize v0.9.6
6. NppExport v0.2.7.3
7. Compare plugin v1.5.1
8. Light Explorer v1.5
9. Doc Monitor v2.1

I have problem with PHP highlighter. It seems not to highlight html outside
of <? ?> <?php ?> tag like it used to.

At the first look it seems two things don't work correctly :
1. the "find in files" is very very slow
2. if i run n++ with a session file as parameter, npp open the session file
itself and not the file included in the session. If i open the session from
the n++ menu (File.. Load.. Session) it's work fine.

Another thing: if the plugin explorer version 1.7.2 is included, n++ crash at
the start-up (exception error handling ....)

Thanks again for this new version.

Regards

Mauro

1. the "find in files" is very very slow
The find in files feature is always slow when user search in a huge directory
in the previous version.
This issue is in todo list and will be enhanced in the future version.

- When auto completion for function names is enabled and any plugins are loaded
tool-tip doesn't always show
- When auto completion for function names is enabled and ctrl+shift+space
is pressed tool-tip sometimes shows garbage at the beginning

Do you know of a way to steadily reproduce it, or increase the likelihood of
doing so? Since it can depend much on the surrounding text it would be very
helpful if you could give some more info on the problem. The same goes for failure
to display the tooltip :). The feature is pretty new so obviously it has a few
kinks, but they aren't always as easy to find.

I really appreciate the new api files, I don't have the knowledge/time or tools
to build all of them myself so community submissions are a great help :).
However, I noticed some keywords were missing. The actual keywords themselves
are still needed to be present for the api file, can the generator script be
altered to include those as well? The original API has entries like "abstract"
which are missing, since they aren't functions.

Best regards,
Harry

I mean that "find in files" is ten or more times slower than the previous version
(4.x.x) !!

"6. Fix clone mode bug : now the actions done in one view will be synchronized
in the cloned view."

sounds to me, that also syntax highlighting gets synchronized, but
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1909699&group_id=95717&
atid=612382 still persits :-(

Could you zip your npp folder and send the zip file to :
don . h @ free . fr

OTOH, Please make sure you unzip it in a clean folder.

Hi there!

We've been playing a bit with this version here at work, and we really like
the calltip feature. However, there are a few remarks/suggestions we'd like
to make about it :)

1) It would be great if it was possible to support multiple xml files for the
same language, as the auto-completion & the function calltips are usually related
to a specific context. For instance, I would like to be able to have:

- 1 .xml for the language
- 1 (or more) .xml for the api I'm using
- 1 .xml for the specific project I'm working on

Each of these would actually define the context in which I'm working, and it
would make it easier to share the xml files with other people. This would be
particularly helpful for open projects.

2) In certain cases, the information to display in the calltip can be rather
long, I'm think about languages like Lua where a function can return multiple
values, so would it be possible to make the calltip a bit thicker ? Like expandable
over 2-3-4 lines if necessary. (maybe support \n to let the code define how
he wants to format it)

3) This suggestion is certainly larger in scope, but is there a chance that
we'll see support for variable type detection. Like in this example:

BaseObject *p;
DerivedObject *pDeriv;

p->Whatever()

where npp would detect that Whatever is a method of the baseobject class and
not of the derived class. I know this wouldn't be easy (especially if you have
to make it generic for all languages), but I had to ask :)

4) In the .xml, would it be possible to support that the list of functions must
not necessarily be sorted alphabetically, this would be extremely useful in
order to manage/group functions that have a common context (which happens often
in API's).

Keep up the good work !

EC DevTeam

Hi,

I develop the phpBB version of Notepad++ over phpbb.com with little modification
that help users who make modifications and even developers.

I'm testing notepad++ in Windows XP Home EN with SP3 and Multilanguage Pack,
Windows 98 SE (on my mom pc) plus Wine 1.0.0 RC4. In all this is working fine
if is compliled with VS8 and I don't install VS9 too. If VS9 is installed there
is a toolbar problem in Preferences.

In Wine if you have Linux in other language and you do not install with the
installer all menus will be traslated by the OS and Settings will not show/work
with vanilla notepad++.

Ill try to take a look at it, but I suspect the problem lies at Scintilla, which
is beyond the scope of notepad++.
Like many lexer issues, I think if its a problem with Scintilla its best of
posted at that project :).

You you post a quick sample that is as small as possible and reproduces the
error?

If I switch the language of the *.php in the Language menu to "HTML" instead
of "PHP" then all the highlighting works fine.

Odd behavior, but it is an Alpha after all.


Thanks for your hard work donho.

i attached an xml, file to the bug report
the description should enable you to reproduce the behaviour.

i'f you need any further information i'd be glad to help.

and if Scintilla is the bad guy, i'm going to post the error there, but i think
they dno't have a clone mode in SciTex

Hi Don,
this is to let you know that the Unicode input issue has reappeared in this
alpha: I have tried with Japanese text.
Version 4.9.2 works fine in this respect.
Thanks a lot for your efforts!
