It’s been 1 years and a half that scintilla isn’t updated. There are some much interested feature or bug fix in recent releases
here is a completely experimental nightly build with Scintilla 3.7.0 embedded.
Scintilla has been updated, notepad++ modifications has been applied, but we don’t use the new API scintilla.
Anyone interested to test ? It’s on the build system website ( appVeyor). links :
informations for developers :
I used scintilla github mirror (https://github.com/mirror/scintilla)
I forked it (https://github.com/cmeriaux/scintilla).
I created branches to apply notepad++ modifications on each release (3-5-6 3-5-7 3-6-0 … 3-7-0 ) (patch applied from original repository, then patch has been cherry-picked over branches)
I declared scintilla as a git submodule ( https://github.com/cmeriaux/notepad-plus-plus/tree/scintilla )
I created branches with new releases of scintilla :
I’m giving a +1 for effort here. I don’t know really what advantages some of these newer versions of Scintilla provide, but surely it is not good for the version in Notepad++ to fall too far behind? :)
