Notepad++ 7.5.4 release
No festivity, no entertaining, but no remorse.
Notepad++ release is my New Year’s party.
I don’t wish you Happy New Year and all the blablabla.
I make you a better new year instead - by offering a new version of Notepad++:
It’s in progress. I cannot estimate the date of shipping this feature, but I guess I need one or 2 months more.
That’s precise enough for me. Thanks so much for this awesome editor! :)
I found one bug (7.5.4 release). its in Language/define your language/ and there if i click to Export, it wants to open file… and also if i click to import, it enable me to save file. So these two buttons have interchangeabled functions or names. (sorry for my english)
Import and Export work fine for me. What localization are you using? Maybe the two got translated incorrectly.
another user reported this as well
Completely missed that :) Seems like we had the same idea in mind as to what the problem might be.
looks like it confirms our suspicions :-)
According to this github issue and this forum post it seems to only effect Windows XP systems. It seems once Notepad++ was moved to VS2015 is when the problem started to occur.
Could be - since VS2015 don’t use the same runtime dll as VS2013’s ones.
However xp’s support has been dropped by Microsoft since long time, and I have no xp anymore, we will drop also the xp support.
sorry for delay, I didn’t get the notification…
I was completly wrong, access time doesn’t matter in my problem (it changes after file status auto-detection).
I’m on Windows 7 / 10 and files on a debian machine, it’s something related to network samba shares, since I can’t reproduce with local files.
On network I reproduce in this way:
- open a file
- change and save it
- leave (blur) n++ window
- wait 10 seconds
- focus n++ window
- change alert shown
I’ll update this thread as soon I find more details.
Just for information, I’m strongly against dropping Windows XP support. Notepad++ is not Microsoft to do such bad things.
Did you see that post :
It seems that @vitaliy-dovgan found out a solution, regarding VS2015 and the auto-detection problem, in XP
Sorry, if that sounds harsh, but: are you out of your mind?
It’s about time that this mess of an OS finally dies - the sooner the better.
Another text editor, which has some plugins developed by me, does support ReactOS, Windows XP, Windows 2000 and even WIndows 98 (and yes, we did hear from people who were still using it - I mean, Windows 98!). Modern or not, there are still a lot of people on Windows XP, for whatever reason. (Just an example, just think about people who are using 10-20 year old PC or notebook.)
I think it answers your question.
This seems to be the FINAL word on it, in case you missed it above:
I have no xp anymore, we will drop also the xp support.
It would be nice if there was some sort of statement like:
The latest version of Notepad++ that is known to fully support Windows XP is version number (fill-in-the-blank). If you use XP and want to use Notepad++, please use that version.
Unfortunately, I lack the interest to research a good answer for the fill-in-the-blank part. :-D
This should become the standard response to bug reports with ? (menu) -> Debug Info… -> OS : WIndows XP
You say : You want an OS full of unpatched security holes
I’m not contesting that fact, and with the use of modern applications in order to surf on many many sites, to get messages and attached files from any source, I agree that recent OS, with a good anti-virus program, are technically more robust and protect the general integrity of our computers !
But, honestly, regarding my general behaviour to explore the WWW ( technical and standard sites, principally, without Facebook and Twitter account ! ) I’ve never been annoyed, yet, with viruses or security problems ;-)) More over, N++, whatever the version used, very rarely crashed, and, up to now, I never lost data ( except, sometimes, when hitting the Shift + Delete shortcut too quickly => NO backup in the Trash ! )
I’ve just liked, for numerous years, by now, to use Win XP, without the UAC restrictions and user rights problems or other similar goodies, which make things more complex that they should be !
However, I’m not ignorant about modern OS ! At work, we build, repair and manage Win7 configurations. My wife has a Win8.1 laptop and my two children have, both, a Win10 laptop. It’s just that I really like that “old good fellow” ( a NEC Versa 350, with Win XP SP3, though rather slow with its 1Gb of RAM, only ! )
Don’t be mistaken ! It’s a problem of money and I just can go out home and afford, myself, a Win10 laptop, these next days ! And I probably will, in a reasonable future. But I’m sure that I will think about this antiquity, with some nostalgia ( and also for an other simple reason : it would have been my laptop when I was young !! )
7.5.1 build with platform sdk v120_xp was the last version supporting winxp. Also newer version are build with v140_xp they suffer from the problem with _stat() is not working as expected on win xp.
