GedcomLexer 0.5.0 now available

A new release of GedcomLexer (an external lexer for GEDCOM files) is available.
This release addresses two issues:
In Notepad++ version 8.4, the Scintilla component was upgraded from version 4.4.6 to version 5.2.1. Notepad++ modified its plugin interface to adapt to the new Scintilla version, which broke existing external lexer plugins. GedcomLexer 0.5.0 has now been updated to work with versions of Notepad++ 8.4 and newer as well as 8.3.3 and older. Thanks to @DonHo for his help: Make External Lexer Plugin work with v8.4.
Since Notepad++ version 7.6.1, the plugin manager has not properly installed the configuration file for external lexers, such as GedcomLexer.
In this revision, if GedcomLexer detects a missing configuration file, it will now try two courses of action. First, it tries to generate a default configuration file “on the fly” from an internal string, if that fails, it displays a message box with instructions for the user to repair the situation by copying a file from the installation. Thanks to @Ekopalypse for his suggested solution for this problem.
