Bug reproduces, Here is the step to do
Edit the PluginManager.ini, set LastCheck to 0, to force the plugin check
wait while plugin Manager windows is not open.
Once plugin Manager windows is open, you can continue to use Npp, the program is stable.
Non click, on Plugin Manager Windows on the Python Script, Npp is still stable and waiting. I can go back to Npp windows, all is stable.
Now click on the Plugin Manager / text area of the release note.
Bang ! Core Dump.
Do you confirm ?

Sorry for the typo
Non click, on Plugin Manager => Now click …
I also reported it on gitHub
Crash bug fixed in v1.4.2. - https://github.com/bruderstein/nppPluginManager/releases/tag/v1.4.2
@Yaron - I checked out your issue, and for me the window where the mouse currently is scrolls (not where the focus is) - what version of windows are you using?
As I can’t repro the validation failed box issue, and I’ve not heard any other reports of this, this should be good to go now, just waiting for the contracts for the hosting to be signed now.
If you can reproduce this issue, please let me know, providing as many details as possible.
Unless there are any major issues reported, I’ll release this next week, so the existing plugin manager will advise to update itself. After a few weeks, I will switch the list on the old plugin manager, so that it only updates the plugin manager (no other plugins will be listed), to force everyone to update.
Hopefully after that, the new version can then be included in the next Notepad++ main release. This plan enables us to fix anything that comes up with the general release, before it gets bundled with N++ itself.
Thanks for the reports and testing!

Windows 7, 32-bit.
I should have mentioned this: the behavior I’ve described existed in previous Plugin Manager as well.
Thank you for looking into it.

@bruderstein Only files there are the source codes. Can you make the dll available?
@Mike-Howard fixed - apologies, I thought I’d uploaded the binaries!

@bruderstein I wonder how I can compile and build the source code, I opened the solution file in Visual Studio Community Edition 2015, but it can’t fine some files “One or more projects in the solution were not loaded correctly.”

even I’m not the target group I can confirm that
- installing a plugin
- updating a plugin and
- removing a plugin
works as expected on ubuntu 16.04 (using wine)

Works like a charm on 6.9.2.
Any chance of making the Plugin list & description windows re-sizable?
thank you kindly

Tested 1.4.2 in npp 7.1 (32 bits) and works perfect (install, remove, reinstall, changing settings).
Couldn’t test updates in this version but I did test them with 1.4.1 and npp 7.0 and they worked perfectly too.

With this version, is it possible to download plugins from https links?
I’m still unable to provide an http link for my plugins.

I think the way you submit/maintain the plugin list needs to be improved as well
Thank you all for testing. I’ve been ill for a week, hence the quietness.
@Franco-Stellari - you can use an HTTPS link since 1.2 :)
@bycn82-bbbb - the immediate improvement is the scheduled updates - every two weeks automatically. For the development list (selectable as an option in the settings), it’s only a few minutes behind. For the interface to update the plugins, that’s a work in progress.
I’ll fix the one reported issue with the sponsor link, then release. Thanks again for all your help.
@Thunder-T the project is still VS2010 - it is being updated to VS2015 as part of the x64 updates. You’ll need to update the paths in the props file in order to build it. This is also being improved (chcg is doing an amazing job with the PRs) – if you can, wait a little bit until we’ve got the x64 stuff merged, it should be much easier to build then.

I just upgraded the Plugin Manger to version 1.4.3 and it’s now showing sponsorship logo and links from Nexinto Business Cloud.
Is this the new plugin list sponsor you mentioned?

@bruderstein, Thanks for your reply; I think the problem I faced when I tried to open sourcecode in VS2010 was not only because of changes made in VS2015, it might also be related to some missing libraries in source code folder. I will keep using dll file by now.

I’m trying to update my plugin on the web site… I think they are working now.
however, when I install them from plugin manager I get the message that the file cannot be validate.
I believe I added the correct hash from the web site… any suggestion on what is wrong and what i should do instead/

Is there any chance we can get a toggle to disable a plugin without deleting it? NPP startup is noticeably faster without a lot of plugins installed.
I have some plugins that I use rarely, but I want to keep the files and configs I have stored on the HD without deleting the plugins from disk…
@Franco-Stellari You’d done everything correctly - the validation list for the “live” list wasn’t being propagated properly. It’s fixed now - I’m not in a position to try installing your plugins, but it should validate now correctlly. Apologies for the confusion.
@altcarage yes, that’s the sponsor
@Ethan-Piliavin that’s a good suggestion - I’ve added it to my trello board, thanks
The admin system seems to have a database connection leak on the new host (the code has changed a bit too) - I’ll try and fix it, but if you get “MySQL has gone away” feel free to ping me (probably twitter is fastest - @bruderstein), and i’ll bounce it.
