Scintilla Update frequency
How frequently Scintilla gets updated?
The Lexer I am working on is upgraded in scintilla version 3.7.
Can I request a pull request and include the scintilla upgraded components alone or include the scintilla components as well in my Lexer Pull request?
I hope Scintilla version 3.7.0 gets updated.
@donho , Kindly consider upgrading Scintilla Version to 3.7.0 (will be released next days).
Sure, I’ll make it happen in the future version.
Thx @donho . WIll await the future version. Just for info, scintilla version 3.7.0 is released.
I made a Python script to apply all the necessary Notepad++ changes (w/ or w/o Boost RegEx support) to a Scintilla official library release.
Let me know if you’re interested.
I’m interested - can I get it too ;-)
Sure, interested in the script.
Let me know.
See my fork’s Convert-to-SCI-for-NPP branch.
Your script is amazing. It should have take a long time to do it.
There is also a scintilla mirror on github https://github.com/mirror/scintilla
What about adding it as a submodule. Wouldn’t it be more convenient ?
Wise? Probably not. When any change to a third-party library gets automatically integrated into the this project, the project also automatically inherits the libraries (new/unknown) issues e.g. none backwards compatible changes in its interface.
IMO a controlled/managed update of third-party libraries/tools with regression tests/checks is preferred.
