Notepad++ v188.8.131.52 release
2 regressions of file modified outside detection and saving file / false alert issues on network drive have been fixed in this release.
An old bug of dockable panels losing background color while switching back Notepad++ issue has been also fixed in this version.
Some users have still experienced the NUL file content corruption & the session lost issues under v184.108.40.206 - it seems these 2 critical bugs have not been fixed.
In order to understand how to fix these issues, once Microsoft Update triggers to shutdown and restart Windows (and only in this case), a very small amount logs (about 9 lines usually) will be written in a file named nppLogNulContentCorruptionIssue.log in %APPDATA%\Notepad++ directory, or in Notepad++ installed folder for the portable packages. In this way, if file corruption due to MS Update happens to any user, log files can be provided to dev for the analysis.
Keep in mind that there won’t be any log written, except when Windows is about to restart and Notepad++ is still opened. However, you can always remove nppLogNulContentCorruptionIssue.xml from the Notepad++ installed folder if you don’t want any log.
