Frankly i do not see that much of the changes but this may have to do with np++ mostly being a secondary editor nowadays (because it’s just have fallen out of fashion). I mostly updated an old version due to the CIA-hack thing. All the other changes basically go unnoticted. It’s nice that someone is working on it though and it’s nice that it’s still lean and mean in comparison to other bloated editors.
Top of my list would be a complete UI overhaul though and maybe a friendlier plugin manager and/or scrapping it and making plugins simpler to create or even make plugins compatible with some other editor that has a large amount of them available.
