where can i find informations about all versions of notepad++ what's new?

  • hello every one.
    i wish to know informations about all new features, changes and bug fixes in all versions of notepad++.
    however, notepad++ change.log includes only informations about the version which i have.
    for example: if i download and use version 7.8, in program files, notepad++ change.log, i can only read informations about version 7.8, (not previous versions).
    where can i read such informations about all notepad++ versions in one file or one web page?
    i appreciate your help, God bless you!

  • @zahra-a

    There is no such file. The only way to get this information
    is to clone the repo and list the commit history.

  • @zahra-ayat

    Probably you are talking about the information that a collection of all of the “change.log” files (that come with every release) would provide?

    I have collected that information into one file, since 2015; it is currently 800 or so lines, I could post it here if it is of interest.

  • I got two upvotes about it, so I suppose that means there is interest in me posting it? :-)

  • That’s all, folks!

    Well, it’s not “all”, but it is all I’ve got.
    I certainly have not been using Notepad++ since its birth.

  • Thank you for taking the time and effort to post this :-)

  • @Ekopalypse said in where can i find informations about all versions of notepad++ what's new?:

    Thank you for taking the time and effort to post this :-)

    Sure, not much time or effort involved, as I already had the data! :-)

  • @Alan-Kilborn

    but you had to post in several posts, for me as a lazy person that would have already been the exit point. :-D

  • @Alan-Kilborn said in where can i find informations about all versions of notepad++ what's new?:

    as I already had the data! :-)

    I wonder if this is worth a full page on @PeterJones Npp User Manual site?


  • @Michael-Vincent ,

    It would be technically possible.

    It would have more weight behind it if someone other than me were to make an official npp-usermanual request on github… especially a normal user like @zahra-ayat , rather than a frequent contributor to the forum.

  • @Michael-Vincent said in where can i find informations about all versions of notepad++ what's new?:

    I wonder if this is worth a full page on @PeterJones Npp User Manual site?

    First, PJ will not appreciate it being called his site. :-)

    Second, it might be worthy, but if judged to be so, then I would recommend a more rigorous approach to collecting and formatting it, such as: grabbing the change.log file out of every release’s portable archive, combining, formatting, blahblah. It could be automated, I suppose.

    My archive was for me, and it slightly changed format as time evolved, so it isn’t rigorous.

  • @PeterJones

    It would have more weight behind it if someone other than me were to make an official npp-usermanual request on github… especially a normal user like @zahra-ayat , rather than a frequent contributor to the forum.

    I think that request is this one?: https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues/9745

  • Hello, @zahra-ayat, @ekopalypse, @alan-kilborn, @michael-vincent, @peterjones and All,

    The magic link is :


    • Explore each main sub-folder, then each sub-folder N++ version

    • Click on a installer link to download any installer version

    • Open this .exe with 7-zip

    • Extract the change.log file

    • Repeat these operations to get all the change.log files, from Notepad_plus.10.bin.zip till Npp.7.9.5.Installer.exe ;-))

    Best Regards,


  • @guy038

    I only see installers from 1.8 onwards, not originating at 1.0. Small issue.
    Presume all have the change.log file.
    Bigger issue is someone needs to volunteer to extract all of the info and cohesively combine it.

    Bigger issue is someone needs to volunteer to extract all of the info and cohesively combine it.

    I tried this:

    wget --spider -r --no-parent http://download.notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/ 2>&1 | grep -E "(portable|bin)" | grep zip | grep -v Removing | grep -v sig | grep -v x64 | awk "{print $3}"

    and after some cleanup, I got this:


    SO, one could put that into a file and:

    foreach line:
        wget $line
        unzip *.zip change.log
        cat change.log >> master.log
        del change.log *.zip

    Or something like that …

    in CMD.exe:

    for /f %i in ('more nppvers.txt') do @(wget %i && unzip *.zip change.log & cat change.log >> master.log & del *.zip change.log)

    I was able to get (with some cleanup) Notepad++ change logs (when available) from 1.0 - 5.0.3. After that, they get put in subdirectories (ansi\change.log, unicode\change.log) so my little one-liner didn’t quite work.

    The resultant file is 751 lines and 39,191 bytes. Where to upload?

    Missing 5.1 - 6.9.2, but I have all others.

    Of course, just realizing now this is in reverse order and I should have tac (instead of cat) the file of URL’s so that the latest changes would be at the top … oh well …
