    Hi Don, I’m just curious when case insensitive sorting will find its way into Notepad++, now that it appears to be available in the repository?



  • @donho

    Since some people don’t seem to understand the protocol of the “Release Candidate” announcement threads, and use it as a place to ask general questions that aren’t related to issues with the RC, and can’t seem to take a hint, I suggest adding this at the bottom of future RC announcements:

    Please post to this thread only if you have a critical issue to report with this release candidate version.

    @Alan-Kilborn said in Notepad++ 7.9 RC4:

    Please post to this thread only if you have a critical issue to report with this release candidate version.

    You act up as if this forum is your personal place or you are an entitled moderator. Obviously, it is you who require a hint.

    You certainly do now how to spread an atmosphere of unwelcomeness. Thanks for that.



  • @deus-ex

    The release or RC announcements are focused on gathering the critical bugs or regressions, so @Alan-Kilborn has his point.
    Regarding your question, you can ask directly in the PR - I cannot watch all issues on Github, but I check the PR for sure.
    To reply your question, normally it’ll be in v7.9.1, if the PR is accepted. If you have other questions, let’s talk in the PR thread. :)



  • No regression shows, time for a new release!
