NppExec v0.6 beta 1 has been realeased!



  • Thanks!
    By the way, the file “NppExec_06beta1_dll_x64.zip” has been re-uploaded - initially it did not include the “NppExec” subfolder which is used by the NppExec plugin to read its constants (such as SCI_… and NPPM_… messages and so on).



  • From now, NppExec’s sources are available on GitHub:
    https://github.com/d0vgan/nppexec



  • Why does NppExec drop a bunch of files in my ...\plugins\doc\ folder?
    Messy.
    Why not put these files into ...\plugins\doc\NppExec\ after the style of other plugins…at least the ones I use that put stuff in the “doc” folder?

    These files are left “floating around”:

    • fparser.html
    • NppExec.txt
    • NppExec_Manual.chm
    • NppExec_TechInfo.txt
    • ScintillaDoc.html
    • style.css

    Actually I wasn’t quite sure all of these files belonged to NppExec (I mean, some obvously do…) until I went to try out this new version and noticed them in the zip file.

    Anyway, anxious to try it out, especially the search and replace functionality alluded to here…thanks!



  • I did not know that other plugins use a subfolder under the “doc” folder to place there documentation there.
    The idea is nice, anyway. Will do it that way.



  • After reading this other thread and following some of the links over to the sourceforge discussion, I was surprised to learn that my NppExec was so far out of date. Looking at my portable NPP 64bit, the Plugin Manager lists 0.6 (beta1) as the most recent and available. But in my main 32bit Notepad++ install, the Plugin Manager still shows NppExec 0.5.3 as the most recent available. If you want people to use the newest NppExec, you might want to also tell the 32bit Plugin Manager about the updated version.



  • The 64bit version I updated to the latest one as no older stable one is available. If 0.6 beta1 is considered to be stable also the 32bit version could be updated. What do you think @Vitaliy-Dovgan ?



  • Yes, I think the version of the 32-bit one can be updated as well.
    I remember I was registered at the original 32-bit Plugin Manager site, where the plugin descriptions are present. Is it still relevant? If so, I just need to find my old credentials there, to be able to update the information.



  • @Vitaliy-Dovgan Could you try to login at https://npppm.bruderste.in/users/login. If you don’t find your login I could also do the update as it could take some time to get in contact with dave to renew the login.



  • Info at the npppm has been updated - now let’s wait for the Plugin Manager to pick it up.



  • @Vitaliy-Dovgan : Nice to hear! :)

    But it seems like the 32-Bit Plugin Admin System at https://npppm.bruderste.in has a malfunction again. For example the PluginManager itself was released as v1.4.11 at March 13th but in the plugin list it still displays the release infos of its v1.4.9. The current version is only available via development plugin list.



  • That is not a malfunction, but a feature. There is a 2 week time schedule to take over the changes from the dev list to the official list to allow for beta testing before going live.



  • Hopefully the schedule is still working. There is a 2 week time schedule to take over the changes from the dev list to the official list to allow for beta testing before going live. PM was build on 2018-03-13, but added to the 32bit list on 2018-03-29 after some testing with the 64bit. So maybe still on the schedule as merge is done on Monday to my knowledge.



  • @chcg
    I rolled back to PluginManager v1.4.9 and it didn’t offer v1.4.10. Or was this version not published via Plugin Admin System?

    @Vitaliy-Dovgan
    The version info of NppExec’s DLL file states that it is v0.6.0. The version info in the Plugin Admin System is set to v0.6.0.1. Therefore the offer to update the plugin doesn’t disappear.



  • @dinkumoil Checkback with Dave Brotherstone showed that the server was not working as expected. The missing sync happened and the 2 week schedule is in place again.
