When will a Plugin Manager for 64x Notepad++ be available?



  • I installed 64x and I really don’t want to have to go back to 32x. I believe this should be a priority issue because this plugin is not just for lazy people as myself who don’t want to do a little extra grunt work to install plugins. It is needed so that during a search it would only filter those plugins compatible with the latest version.

    64 bit has no advantage over 32 bit so there’s no reason to stick to 64 bit.

    It is being worked on by the developer of the Plugin Manager. When it does get finished just keep in mind alot of plugins won’t have support for 64 bit.

    Sure, DonHo just makes it for fun & to waste his time. ;-)
    Sure it has advantages. First of all, the syntax highlighting of the Scintilla component eats a lot of memory on big files. Also the 32 bit NPP version limits the possibilities of plugins, since you can’t load 64-bit DLLs to a 32-bit application. And there might be plugins, which might want to use alot of memory.
