    I confirm that the issues regarding the URL parser, which I reported for the 7.9.2 RC release, have been successfully fixed.

    Thank you all. Have a great and happy new year!

  • @donho

    I confirm that the problem with the function list files have been successfully resolved.

    Thank you very much. I also wish you a great and happy new year!

  • @donho and all

    One question regarding fix #2 “Make installer override all the function list files on the installation”: When I look at the related commit it seems like the file overrideMap.xml will be overwritten as well when Notepad++ is updated. This would destroy user customizations of this file. IMO this should be avoided. What do you think?

  • @dinkumoil

    User should override %PROGRAMFILES%\Notepad++\functionList\overrideMap.xml by using %APPDATA%\Notepad++\functionList\overrideMap.xml, but well, it’s done:

    The behaviour will come with v7.9.2 official release.
