I'm sorry, I'm ignorant when it comes to Notepad++. Is Notepad++ a big app in programming? To me, a casual PC user, Notepad++ is in the same league as Paint or Calculator or Stickies or Text Document. But Notepad++ updates have been posted at least bi-weekly since I've joined here since what, 2006? What is it about this app? Nodles, I'm looking at You. :ph34r:

 

The reason I'm intrigued is because to me it's almost like updating "1 + 1 = 2" for years on end. I'm curious.

For me, the programming side of Notepad++ is it's advantage.

I use it for HTML and VB as it auto-colours the syntax for you, making coding visually easy.

And since I started using it for that, it has progressed to my go-to text editor.

To the extent that now, as one example, I have some macros in Notepad++ that I use to strip out the comment lines from the MVPS HOST file when I update it.

 

as to the updates, seems to average every month.

bug fixes are part of those obviously but they mainly seem hell bent on including new features, which for me, aren't in big demand.

seems lots of software houses are on a monthly update band wagon.

They need to keep it relevant or people could forget about or switch to something else.

Also lets you set custom color schemes. I made one for working with winapp2.ini syntax

 

Rapid release for bugfixes is becoming the norm. Mozilla is actually moving to a 'when its ready' system for features, with RR for bugfixes (possibly even daily)
