Notepad++ 7.6.3 released
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 https://github.com/Edditoria/markdown-plus-plus to install your Markdown UDL manually.
Due to the security reason, from this version Notepad++ will load plugins only from
%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.
Auto-updater will be triggered in few days if there’s no critical issue found.
