Parallel processing of what?
A single CPU has enough power to handle your keyboard typing.
Most users of Notepad++ do not experience high CPU utilization or long delays. The few that did (lookup the forum) usually found a faulty plugin or wrong usage paradigm that was easy to fix.
Multi threading is not a feature. It is a tool in the hands of the developer to be applied to specific parts of the application. And for most tasks it is far less helpful than people tend to think.
So the question is whether there is a specific task that bothers you. For example: Find in files. For which the answer is: “Yes it is difficult to implement”.
