Notepad++ 7.6.3 released

27 Jan 2019 22:19:00

European Commission has launched EU-FOSSA (EU-Free and Open Source Software Auditing: Bug Bounty program) project to improve the security of free softwares. Thanks to EU-FOSSA, some security issues have been found and fixed in this version.

Markdown language is one of most demanded language to be supported in Notepad++. By using UDL system, Markdown++ has done an awesome job to make it come true. In this release, the default theme of markdown++ has been included in the installer (not in the zip packages), if your Notepad++ uses darker theme (for example Zenburn), please go to to install your Markdown UDL manually.

Due to the security reason, from this version Notepad++ will load plugins only from <NPP_INST_DIR>\plugins\. In the case of installer, Notepad++ is installed in %ProgramFiles%\Notepad++\ - plugins are loaded from %ProgramFiles%\Notepad++\plugins\ instead of %ProgramData%\Notepad++\plugins\ in the previous version. This change has no impact on current loading behaviour of portable version. Sorry for the inconvenience regarding this change - I believe there's no more modification concerning the plugins location in the future.
