Notepad++ 7.9 RC3



  • @donho said in Notepad++ 7.9 RC3:

    I (and others) do my best to treat the issues. If you are not happy about it, stop whining and help us to do it.

    @donho You missed my point by so far it is amazing, but I guess that is what happens sometimes with non-native English speakers. There was no whining here, except against people that think they get your direct attention for their “pet” issues by typing into an RC announcement thread. Which, astoundingly, sometimes works.

    BTW, I do “help us do it”, not by treating issues directly, but by answering questions here. Check my “reputation” score. You’re welcome. :-)



  • @donho @ArkadiuszMichalski @vinsworldcom

    Thanks to the help of you guys over at GitHub the issue has been solved. Don provided a binary of the NppHexedit plugin that does not produce the reported crash. A huge thank you to you guys, again!

    Don, could you please comment on whether there exists an entry ‘Language name=“MS-DOS Style”’, and if not, how so? Thank you.

    Besides this being Don’s forum, thus as a homeowner it’s solely his decision how he handles things, it says nowhere that you cannot address issues in an announcement thread. I guess the fact that the announcement threads are left open supports my point.



  • @deus-ex

    it says nowhere that you cannot address issues in an announcement thread

    Don tried to tell you, here:

    Here is for the RC regression issues. Let’s talk in (somewhere else).

    Sorry for my misunderstanding and aggressiveness - I guess I become paranoid after receiving all the insulting emails. :)

    Well, thank you very much - without community, Notepad++ cannot be what it is today!

    And that was when I answered his request and continued the discussion somewhere else. Yet that is no proof of a general rule.



  • Hello @don-ho and All,

    With delay, many thanks for the new release ! Contrary to the other times, I can’t say that some points are especially interesting as all of them seem to be important ;-))

    Two remarks :

  • @guy038,

    Hi Guy,

    Nice to see you here again!

    Add keyboard shortcuts for switching to panels should be changed as Add keyboard shortcuts for switching to Projects, Folder as Workspace and Function List panels as these shortcuts do not concern all panels !

    Good point!
    However, after checking again this feature, I would reword it to Add keyboard shortcut ability to Projects, Folder as Workspace and Function List panels for switching among them. The term “ability” is used because the shortcuts are not added, but users can add them via Shortcut Mapper. What do you think?

    I added these two points :
    28. Fix Escape key on FunctionList’s text field causing bell sound.
    29. Include newest nppPluginList in which HexEdit is updated to 0.9.7 (Fixed exception in v7.9 and supported 64 bits).

    Escape key on FunctionList’s text field was added in v7.9, so the bug does not exist for the most of Notepad++ users (except us). So 28. is not meaningful in the change log.
    Same for 29.: Since the newest version of nppPluginList is always included on Notepad++ release, it’s not necessary to mention it each time. It was mentioned for the delta between RC2 and RC3 (for people in this forum), because of a crash bug of HexEdit detected on v7.9.

    Here is my new list :

    Thank you for the list!



  • Hi @don-ho and All,

    Don, you said :

    I would reword it to Add keyboard shortcut ability to Projects, Folder as Workspace and Function List panels for switching among them

    Thank you for asking me my feeling about it ! After all, it’s your product, isn’t it ? But, indeed, this new phrasing seems more accurate !

    OK for messages about missing points 28 and 29, too !

    Cheers,

    guy038

    P.S. I’ll certainly duplicate this list, when N++ version 7.9 is announced :-)

    A product cannot go far without a great community.
    It’s always better to get people’s thinking to forge the direction of product.
    In this way, Notepad++ is rather a product of community, my role is just a filter to guide the product going more smoothly.

    Thank you everyone who’s contributed to this forum and to the project on GitHub!
