Notepad++ does not install with knowledge of Python 3.5 Syntax.
With the introduction of Python 3.5 it adds in async def and await for new type of coroutines unlike 3.4.
Unlike 3.5 3.4’s syntax is added into Notepad++ and is highlighted like it is supposed to be. On the other hand Notepad++ does not know about async def and await keywords so it does not highlight them unlike what PyCharm does.
I would be happy if the next Notepad++ vwersion would add native support for these keyworkds for Python 3.5.0+.
