Thank you for asking me my feeling about it ! After all, it’s your product, isn’t it ?
A product cannot go far without a great community.
It’s always better to get people’s thinking to forge the direction of product.
In this way, Notepad++ is rather a product of community, my role is just a filter to guide the product going more smoothly.
Thank you everyone who’s contributed to this forum and to the project on GitHub!
I had a previous 7.8.x version, and when I choose to update notepad++, it took a little time because of my bandwidth.
I then switched applications and when back to notepad++, the download progress bar disappeard.
So I manually initiated a new update via the help menu.
Finally I found that there were 2 download at the same time, corrupting the installer exe.
I had to download it a 3rd time (after the 2 first finished) so it overwrite the exe with correct version.
Maybe it could be great to disable the menu entry to update notepad++ while another updater instance is running, also it would be great to put the progress bar always in front of notepad++.
I found a fix, at least for my PC. On a Win7x64 system using 32-bit N++, I had the same problem with every post-7.6 version I had installed. None of them ever had the Plugins install correctly. I got it working, finally, with 7.8.9, but it’s likely the same issue as prior versions. I’m replying to this because it seems to have the most information/discussion.
The problem was that the GUP.exe file in the notepad++/updater/ folder wasn’t ever starting. I watched my Task Manager and checked windows error logs… it never started. So I had a hunch, anc ran the GUP.exe program directly, and Windows popped up its UAC nag window ('Open File - Security Warning). I unchecked “Always ask before opening this file” to clear it with the UAC, clicked ‘Run’, and it showed the standard Notepad++ Available Update message. I clicked ‘no’.
I then re-opened Notepad++, used the Plugins Admin to install a plugin, and it WORKED. Hopefully this will help others with the same problem, which was (for clarity) that selecting to install a plugin through the ‘Plugins Admin’, click ‘Yes’ to restart, and NPP closes but never re-opens on its own. When opened manually, nothing was installed.
What is the practice of adding translations if the RC version already appears?
Translation files are included before doing RC, since RC means “Release Candidate”, and once RC is validated by the community (ie. no regression reported), the tested binaries are kept for the release (there are some exceptions though). The updated translation files come after RC will be included in the next release.
Yes i am not able to do install the Tortoise SVN plugin in the available section mentioned above in your post. i am able to do it in my personal pc but not in my office pc. Later i figured it out that it was proxy settings i need to modify to make it installed/donwload in my office pc setup. Thank you.
Also If you can see the info about Tortoise SVN plugin that mentions HomePage, Author, Available at etc
Homepage the plugins available in that location are not working for notepad++ version higher than 7.6.3 it should be update it like this
