Notepad++ 8.3 - Boycott Beijing 2022
It is hard to believe that the Winter Olympics are still held in Beijing, despite all the violations of human rights by the Chinese government to the Uyghurs and in Hong Kong. I am surely not the only one who has had such feelings. As ordinary people, we might have no power to change these ugly facts, but choosing to not watch or pay attention to the games - that is the power of choice that we do have. Time for outrage!
This release focuses on the management of large files: not only 2GB files size restriction has been removed from Notepad++ 64-bit binary, but also the loading and editing of large files (200MB) performance have been improved for both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries considerably. However, this change causes the compability issue with a lot of plugins, which will bring the instability, even crash on Notepad++ x64 binary. It’s simple and easy to fix these incompabilities: plugins authors have to recompile their x64 binaries with the new modified C++ header file. Sorry for the instability to the users and inconvenience to the plugin authors. Notepad++ will be rerleased more frequently with updated plugin list to ensure its usability.
