    critical for default users:
    if a manually installed plugin is removed with plugins admin, the whole plugins folder gets deleted.

    It’s a bug, but not a critical one. Since we upgrade Scintilla from a very old version to a new one, I prefer to have minimum modification to deal with potential regression.

    Deleting all plugins is not critical? I don’t agree. Apart from the Scintilla update v7.7 RC2 already includes 5 fixes which change the code basis of Notepad++. The fix for the bug is only a tiny change in one file. It should not be a problem to include it even if you want to take care for possible regressions concerning the Scintilla update.

    Oups, my bad. I thought only the empty plugin folder is removed. In this case, it’s critical.
    I’ll include this fix in RC V3 then. Thank you.
