    Telling us that you have a problem doesn’t help you to solve your problem.
    Describing it by providing more detail information does.

    I heard you. Did I say that this bug won’t be fixed?
    BTW, just as you, I have a daily job so I can feed my family, and I have also my personal life.
    So be patient, or fix it by your own (it’s an open source project after all) - I don’t owe you anything.



  • @donho, it seems you’re are bit frustrated/tensed today. Hope, things are fine. Please relax and take care.

  • @donho , Thank you for scintilla update. It can’t have been easy, fun, or glamorous, but I appreciate the work.



  • I upgraded from 7.5.9 to 7.7 (32-bit) and:

    • I lost Explorer plugin
    • If I install Explorer 1.8.5 plugin using Plugins Admin, I get an error about hash mismatch and plugin is not installed.
    • The Plugin Manager doesn’t work anymore but still shows up among my plugins
    • If I attempt to remove Plugin Manager using Plugin Admin it just does nothing
    • After reinstalling my previous version 7.5.9, the notepad is no longer functional

    It seems that release v7.7 is very unstable and has some major issues.



  • @borynet-llc

    Please take these issues to a separate thread; it is meant to keep this thread clean for real 7.7 issues. [Your issue isn’t related to 7.7 but rather the coming of Plugins Admin (N++ 7.6+) and the deprecating of Plugin Manager (used in 7.5.9 and earlier)].



    • The Plugin Manager doesn’t work anymore but still shows up among my plugins

    @chcg Could Plugin Manager be removed from the list ? Since it stops working for a while.

    It’s already done, see >>> this commit <<<. The problem is: at most users systems it is already present and of course they migrate it to the new plugins directory structure like they do with their other plugins.

    Could it be treated like “unstable plugins” are (or were?) – ie, moved to a disabled\ subdirectory? I know that through 7.5.9, when I would upgrade Notepad++ (either through the auto-update, or by downloading the new install package and installing over top the old copy), it would identify PreviewHTML as an “unstable” plugin, in move it to the disabled subdir, so I always had to go move it back into the main plugins directory so that I could use it. Is that feature still there, or could it be added back in for the old PluginManager?

    There was >>> this commit <<< that removed the “disabling routine” from Notepad++'s installer, it has been part of v7.6.2.

    Why would you like to “save” the old PluginManager? @chcg stated somewhere that he wants to keep it alive to the end of 2019. When the plugin list servers will be taken offline it will be useless. The plugin admin system at bruderste.in already lacks a valid SSL certificate and it seems like plugin updates are not applied to the plugin list anymore.

    EDIT: @PeterJones Forget what I wrote above, I’ve missed your point.



  • What about Explorer plugin? Why is explicitly disabled and why the new does not installs?



  • @borynet-llc

    I guess my earlier post was TL;DR



  • I don’t know which post you are talking about. Seems you are being a bit defensive instead helping.



  • @borynet-llc said:

    What about Explorer plugin?

    This problem isn’t Notepad++ related. It seems the author of the Explorer plugin has deleted the released version whose download link is part of the currently official plugin list. Some days ago there has been a similar question where I was able to provide a solution, see >>> here <<<.



  • @donho

    @chcg Could Plugin Manager be removed from the list ? Since it stops working for a while.

    we’ve already removed plugin manager from the plugins list about six weeks ago, but we have not implemented a forced deletion in unitTest.

    my apologies, i thought it was not necessary to force disable plugin manager anymore, as it is no longer visible when upgrading from 7.5.9 to 7.6.x and above, due to the folder structure changes.

    note: even if we would implement an installer deletion, it will not help, if a user installs plugin manager manually after upgrading, or if he migrates his old plugins.



  • FYI: Auto-updating for v7.7 is just triggered.
