    could you please also make a new release for nppPluginList .

  • @cmeriaux

    Good point ! Will do ASAIC.
    Thank you.

  • @donho

    The 64 bit 7z and ZIP packages contain a 32 bit version of the NppExport plugin which causes an error at Npp startup.

  • @donho

    The 64 bit installer contains no NppExport plugin at all.

  • Maybe not a defect per se, but it definitely adds “interest” when the language file version numbers don’t correspond to the Notepad++ version (and sometimes refer to versions that never existed!); example from N++ v.7.7.1 and v.7.8(rc1):


  • @Alan-Kilborn It depends on the person who makes the localization of this language, donho does not do this))
